Mumbai: Actor Gurmeet Choudhary says his eyes are now totally set on films and that it's time to move on from TV. But he says he would never say a 'final goodbye' to a medium which gave a push to his career.
The actor has featured in shows like "Ramayan", "Geet - Hui Sabse Parayi" and "Punar Vivah" and even participated in reality shows like "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5" and "Nach Baliye 6".
In an interview, the actor, who has signed a three-film deal with Vishesh Films, has spoken about his stint with TV, his wife Debina and his hopes from his new movie career:
Q. Do you think your fan base from television would follow you in movies?
A. I've definitely established a fan following during all these years on television. And my fans are very devoted to me. However, I am looking at cinema as a new medium and hoping to cultivate new films. I've left behind my career on television and my fans from that medium.
Q. So no more television for you?
A. I don't want to say any final goodbye to the medium that has given me everything. But the fact of the matter is, I've done three very successful serials. Then I needed a break to build my movie career. But then my fans missed me on television. So I did Nach Baliye and Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Khatron Ke Khiladi just so that my fans don't miss me. But it's now time to move on.
