Tele­vi­sion ac­tor Priyan­shu Jora (left) who fea­tures in the show Bade Bhaiyya Ki Dul­haniya, says that bag­ging a se­cond show is tougher than get­ting a break on TV.

He says, “I got my first break with a big show. Peo­ple told me that now it’ll be eas­ier for me to bag roles. But it only got tougher. After be­ing part of a big show, you have quite a choice of projects. But you need to be care­ful with what you come on board with. This makes it more chal­leng­ing,” says Priyan­shu, who also did the show Tu Mera Mero.

“The chal­lenge is to get on board with the right show. Whether this is tough or not, it also de­pends on the space you want to be in. If you are ready to work in any show, then this will not be tough for you,” he adds.

Priyan­shu is par­tic­u­lar about the work he wants to take up. He quips, “If a story is not about me, I won’t get on board with it. I want my shows to run on my shoul­ders. It’s not like I have de­cided to stay away from cer­tain shows, but I want to take up shows which are unique and fresh and not some­thing which has been made be­fore,” he said.

In fact, the ac­tor adds that TV was no longer on his wish list after his de­but show. “I had de­cided that I will go straight into films. But the of­fers which I got were not really what I was look­ing for. This is why I de­cided to take on an­other show,” he says.

Bade Bhaiyya ki Dul­haniya re­volves around the char­ac­ter Ab­hishek Pant, who is the sole bread earner in his fam­ily of four­teen peo­ple.

The chal­lenge is to get on board with the right show. Whether this is tough or not, it also de­pends on the space you want PRIYAN­SHU JORA, AC­TOR
