|Mallika Sherawat is apparently eyeing a longer stint on Indian television. She says if a good offer comes along, she might be a part of the fiction shows as well.
Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat, who will soon be seen on TV reality show "Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", says she is open to do a fiction show as well, provided she gets a good role.
"If I get a good role, I am open to it (fiction shows on TV)," Mallika said on the launch of her TV debut, which is being shot at the Fatehgarh Fort here.
"Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", through which the actress will search for a soulmate, will air on Life OK starting Oct 7.
Mallika Sherawat, who has featured in movies like Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Murder, feels that she has done enough films in her over a decade of association with filmdom.
"If I get a good offer (on TV), then I will take it up. I have done enough films. How many of them have interesting roles? I hardly get any interesting roles as I have a glamorous image," she said.
"In five years, I get one Dirty Politics. Other than that I get films like 'Welcome' and 'Hisss'," she said.
Besides TV, the actress is also keen to be a part of theatre.
"I would love to be a part of theatre. Theatre is any actor's dream," she said.
Mallika will not be governed by TRPs: Rohit Roy
Mallika Sherawat is all set to find her Mr. Right through television show "Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon ki Mallika" and Rohit Roy, the host of the show, says that the actress is completely natural on the show.
The actor added that the show is not rigged at all.
"This show cannot be rigged. Mallika is Mallika, she will not be governed by TRPs (Telivision Rating Point). She is very clear in what she wants and how she wants to go about it. There is no question of it being rigged," the 44-year-old told IANS in an interview.
Rohit said that his role is not only of a host in the show, but he will also be seen guiding the actress as she makes her decisions.
"I thought I would just be a link between Mallika and the audience. But my role is more complicated. Mallika takes advise from me. Also, the boys sometimes forget why they are here when they look at all this glamour, so I guide them as well," he said.
The actor said that he feels responsible on the show. He says that he must maintain some distance from the show as he tends to get biased.
"I feel so responsible and I get involved in everything. I should be distant from the entire proceeding as I can get biased. I feel I am responsible for how the show comes up. I feel responsible as an actor and as a friend," he said.
Rohit said that the significance of the show in his career would be decided once it comes on air in October.
"The significance of this show will be known once the show comes on air. Time will tell. Whatever I am involved in, whether it is acting or directing, I put a little bit of me in that. So, I expect the best," Roy said who has been seen in shows like "Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand" and "Swabhimaan".
