Pratyusha Banerjee, who has started shooting for the crime saga "Savdhaan India", says she accepted the show because it offered her the "best" opportunity to try something "different".
"Instantly, I said yes to the show because I wanted to do something exciting, something new and nothing could have been better than this," Pratyusha said here Monday on the set of the show.
"Crime-based shows are doing really well these days. Such shows always excite me and for me, anchoring was a different thing," she added.
Pratyusha, who has so far worked in popular TV series "Balika Vadhu" and participated in reality show "Bigg Boss 7", describes "Savdhaan India" as the "best opportunity" for her.
The special segment will start March 3 on Life OK. Hiten Tejwani and Sushant Singh will join her as co-hosts.
When asked if she is doing any other project, the 22-year-old said: "Let's see what happens next... I have not planned anything."
