Nishant bats for action sequences in TV shows


IANS New Delhi
Actor Nishant Singh Malkani says more Indian TV shows should have action sequences and characters could be inspired by cine icon Amitabh Bachchan's films like "Zanjeer" and "Shahenshah".
He is happy that through his show "Guddan… Tumse Na Ho Paega" he gets to explore the action genre sometimes.
"I really enjoy doing it. I just had an action sequence after the boxing one. It's really amazing as I get to fight goons and save the day," Nishant told IANS.
"More Indian shows should have action sequences. I think they should have characters inspired by Amitabh Bachchan's films like 'Zanjeer', 'Shahenshah' and 'Don'. We need to see an 'angry young man' in more shows who doesn't give in to wrong-doings and fights for the right things," said the actor.
He made his debut on the small screen with "Miley Jab Hum Tum" in 2009, but it was the show "Ram Milaayi Jodi" in 2010 that brought him into the limelight.
He has also done films like "Bezubaan Ishq" and "Ishq Ne Krazy Kiya Re".
"My shows have been more popular than my films. But I don't blame anyone as it's all about luck and timing. I think Indian television audience likes me," said Nishant.
