TV HAS GIVEN ME A FOLLOWING I NEVER HAD: SUNIEL SHETTY
He has been in Bollywood for a quarter of a century and has delivered some memorable films such as Mohra (1994), Hera Pheri (2002), Dhadkan (2000) and others. But now, actor Suniel Shetty (above), who is hosting a television reality show, feels that it is the small screen that has given him a newer audience and a following.
Suniel was last seen on the silver screen in the 2014 film Desi Kattey. Asked why he chose to make a comeback to showbiz with the small screen, he says, “Because the small screen would get me into every house. That is what the small screen has done. It has given me a newer audience.” He adds the small screen brings out the real personality of an actor.
“Television somehow brings out your actual personality because you are playing yourself. I think that is what the show has done for me — it has given me a newer audience,” he adds.
