Ac­tor Neil Bhoopalam (right) says that he doesn’t want to be part of shows where he has to play the same char­ac­ter over a long pe­riod. The ac­tor, who will be seen in the sec­ond sea­son of ac­tor Anil Kapoor’s TV se­ries, says that a rea­son he took up the show is be­cause it has a lim­ited num­ber of episodes.

“When I play a char­ac­ter, I don’t want to play it for too long. I feel I will get burnt out if I have to con­tinue to play the same char­ac­ter for long,” says Neil.

With the sea­sons for­mat be­ing a hit abroad, the ac­tor says that it’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore In­dian tele­vi­sion adopts it as well. “We will get to that level very soon. The se­ries for­mat with a fixed num­ber of episodes is still new here and the lo­gis­tics of it need to be worked out. Once that is done, ev­ery­one will want to make shows in this for­mat,” he says.
