Arjun Bijlani: Acting is my true passion, hosting only for fun


And when the time is right, I am sure he will shine. As for hosting, a lot comes from the person I am in real life. It’s a total package of entertainment. Also, he loves watching Dance Deewane. I also know, for a fact, that people will always remember Deep. We, as actors, usually get scripts on the go. Will we see the same this time too? It’s a thriller, a revenge drama and these stories cannot go on forever. I completely enjoyed playing Deep. As much as we avoid, it does affect them somewhere. Ishq Mein Marjawan was supposed to be a six-month show but ended up running for two years. 0
Comment(s) And I hope I continue getting such different and good roles. Many fear failure and so don’t want to experiment. It was certainly a risk when I took up a character with grey shades. We don’t even get time to prepare much unlike film actors. It’s amazing to see a four-year-old doing so well. Also, the USP of the show is that three generations get together, a first-ever on Indian television. More Explained

It does get after some time. As a parent, would you be open to him participating in a reality show? Hosting is more for fun as it gives me a good break. Your son also seems to be interested in dance. What’s your take on the television industry still looked down upon? Every industry works hard and they deserve respect. And trust me the talent has only become better this year. Advertising

I am an actor and that’s my true passion. I think Ishq Mein Marjawan saw its good run and I am so happy I could be a part of it. I know the canvas of movies is bigger but then not all films are hits. Were you confident it will do so well? Your daily show Ishq Mein Marjawan will wrap up soon. But I would definitely back him and train him. I really feel he can do well if he starts learning. Honestly, most of them are very impromptu. We keep pulling each other’s legs. He manages to innovate his steps and moves on every beat. Overall, the industry toils really hard to entertain the audience every single day. I usually break the ice and like talking and entertaining people. In the recent Hina Khan Cannes controversy, you were probably the first person to take a stand for her. You have been appreciated for your job as a host. It’s high time, we bridge the gap between mediums. Excerpts from the conversation:
Excited to host Dance Deewane again? The previous season really did well and so everyone is quite excited about the second season. I think the banter will only get better this year. Did you have the confidence to pull it off when you started? Advertising

I think it’s going on for a long time now. Similarly, not every serial is good but there are some that are really well made. It was not a saas-bahu show that we could keep adding characters to keep extending the storyline. I am proud of Ishq Mein Marjawan. As for kids’ participation, I think it all depends on parents. It’s more entertaining when it’s a surprise. Although it has never happened to me, I know many TV actors who were not treated well or humiliated. Absolutely. But as actors, doesn’t it get monotonous to play a character for so long? As I told you, acting is my passion and I enjoy doing various roles. But I decided that I might fail but it would be a learning experience. That has helped me grow as a host but I am completely focused on acting. Personally, I wouldn’t like him to be too much in the limelight at such a young age. We really have a lot of fun while shooting and that fun does come across on the screen too. Popular Photos

Ayaan loves dancing. Last season, a lot of fun happened with Tushar and Shashank pulling your legs, calling you Madhuri Dixit’s brother. It’s definitely not a career choice. Advertising

At the sidelines of an event, Arjun had a quick chat with indianexpress.com about hosting Dance Deewane 2, his son’s inclination towards dance and his serial Ishq Mein Marjawan.
