“I am an entertainer; medium is secondary thing for me”- Arjun Kapoor

Sanjukta Sen | January, 28 2016

Actor Arjun Kapoor is all set to make his small screen debut with reality show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' which begins airing from January 30 said being an entertainer he has no qualms working in small screen.
 
As he was asked if he has any doubts on making appearance on small screen, “I am an artist and my work is to entertain people, it doesn't matter whether it is small screen or big screen.” The actor replied, who appears to be quite confident about his first appearance on small screen.
 
The ‘2 states’ actor believes while he isn't hesitant of making appearance on TV also he trusts it is a influential medium which should not be devalued its power as a link between audience and an artist.
 
“I want to entertain people I am here for that. The power of television should never be underrated. It is amazing medium for us to reach to those people who can’t watch us by visiting to a cinema hall. They could watch us on the television. And I believe when you are an entertainer you should not bother about the medium by which way you are entertaining people.”
 
Speaking at the promotional event of the reality show with an underlying theme 'Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda', the ‘Gunday actor also added, “Artists like Amitabh Bachchan did ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ when he was in his peak. Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan also did TV shows. Even there are many artists who made their debut in Television, then became popular in big screens. My point is that talent should be able to do everything possible and one must not keep a myopic view. As long as there is entertainment, talent and creativity can be exchanged in a positive and right way we can do very well and continue entertaining across the country. India does love to be entertained on a regular basis.”
 
On the professional front, Kapoor is filming for Ki and Ka, directed by R. Balki opposite Kareena Kapoor and has been roped for Mohit Suri's next "Half Girlfriend" along with Shradhha Kapoor.
