PANCHGANI: He made a humble beginning with the small screen with shows like Fauji and Circus, but Shahrukh Khan went on to make it big in Bollywood. He now says he won’t mind coming back to TV to act, and adds it would be a good idea for film stars to collaborate for a project.
Will you act in TV at this point of your career, he was asked Wednesday at a press conference of the upcoming 13th Zee Cine Awards.
He said: “I had a discussion with late Mukul Anandji and since then we have been thinking that all the big stars of Bollywood come together and make a TV series. It will be interesting if Bollywood people come together and make a 10-part or 12-part series, just like Buniyaad and Hum Log. We have international stars being a part of such shows as well.”
“I am open to doing it if there is good storytelling to entertain the audience,” he added.
Like many other stars, Shahrukh too has had a recent taste of reality shows on the tube. He hosted the third season of popular game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati, and later played the host on shows like Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? and Zor Ka Jhatka: Total Wipeout.
He says he loves working on TV because that’s where he started his career from.
During the press conference, it was also revealed that Shahrukh will pay tribute to legendary film-maker Yash Chopra at the Zee Cine Awards.
“I will pay tribute to Yash ji by dancing with the leading ladies of his films. However, we are still in the stages of finalising things,” he said.
