The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil helmer, who is all set to judge singing show Dil Hai Hindustani, said: “I don’t think there is anything left on television that I didn’t do. From judging the dancing, hosting a show to now judging a singing show, I’ve covered it all.”
The ace Bollywood director claimed himself to be a television personality now, “I am more of a television personality now and films seem to be an incidental part of my personality.”
The Kapoor & Sons producer who has served as a judge on the reality shows Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and India’s Got Talent added: “Wherever I go, people ask me more about talent shows or the talk show and it’s very embarrassing. “I think the impact of television is huge. It’s nine times more impactful,” he said. It is important to know for us that three percent people of our country watch films whereas 25 percent people watch television. Sometimes, I have to tell them I am a filmmaker and a producer too.”
