After being part of two reality shows back to back, Top Model and Ace of Space finalist, Shehzad Deol wants a break from reality TV. Nevertheless, the aspiring actor doesn’t mind taking up the top non-fiction series of the country Bigg Boss if it is offered to him. “I was offered all the reality shows on TV but I did not select any. I did Top Model because Sargun (Mehta, actor) convinced me and that show created space for me on TV. I’m glad that I did that, people know me because of Top Model. I was offered Ace of Space because of Top Model as well. I’m not looking to take up any more reality shows at the moment because I’m done with the reality space. I mean if you ask me two months from now, I may change my decision but as of now I just cannot take the pressure of any more reality shows right now. The only reality show, that I will be interested in being part of would be Bigg Boss because of the popularity that it will get me,” he said.
However, when it comes to daily soaps, Shehzad is all up for it. “I’m open to any kind of acting job as long as it is paying me well. My career goal is ultimately to become a successful actor. I don’t go with that stereotypical thinking that if you do TV, you cannot become a big actor. There are so many examples, look at Sushant Singh Rajput. Gone are the days when film stars and TV stars are considered very different,” he told.
