Mumbai, May 22 (IANS) Unlike most TV actors who look at the big screen for acting projects, Neil Bhatt is keen on directing a Bollywood film.
The actor is currently a part of Zee TV’s “Sabke Jeevan Ka Adhar – Ramayan” and plays Lakshman in it.
“I would like to direct a film for Bollywood,” Neil told IANS.
It’s not that he doesn’t want to act in films.
“I do look forward to doing more television, but finally I would love to do films. I want to do films where we are not just aping the south or west,” said Neil, who has been a part of shows like “Gumrah – End Of Innocence”, “12/24 Karol Bagh”, “Arslaan” and “Gulaal” in the past.
The actor’s career kicked off with dance reality show “Boogie Woogie”, which gave him the confidence to perform.
“It gave me confidence to face the audience. Dance has been a part of my life, and it helped me in that sense,” said Neil, who had won “Boogie Woogie”.
The actor admits that reality shows helped him get a push in his career.
“Reality shows did help me, but then they became a part of my career,” he said.
He is still open to reality shows.
“I would love to do another one. I would like to do dance reality shows and performance-based shows like ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ and ‘Nach Baliye’. I think I am meant for them,” he said.
