Television actor Arjun Bijlani, who has kept away from daily soaps for a while, might get married soon at his mother's behest.
"I'm 29 and now my mother always says 'You should get married.' I also feel the same. I might get married soon and will have a family," Arjun told IANS.
The actor, who is said to be dating a lady outside the industry, says marriage would do no harm to his career.
He doesn't believe in the stereotype mindset that marriage can put a stop to an actor's work.
"Lot of people think that once you get married, you will not get work in the industry. But I believe most of the successful stars are married," he said.
Considering long-term stability in the acting world happens to a lucky few only, Arjun still feels no need to have a back-up business plan.
"For me business is not a back-up plan. Sachin Tendulkar is a cricket player and that's his passion. But he also has a restaurant... I don't think that's his back-up plan."
"Likewise, there are many people into acting but side by side they've started their business also. I have my own business, I've a wine shop in Andheri and acting is my passion. I'm more inclined towards my interest. I want to grow as an actor," he added.
More so, he is not afraid of being out of work.
"It's not the fear of 'What if I don't get work, so it's better to do some side business or have back up plans.' I'm not saying that people aren't investing in side business, but this is not the case with me," he said.
These days, he is busy hosting UTV Bindass' reality show "Road Diaries", as part of which he travels with five contestants to different places in the country and keeps a check on their progress.
"It's a show where people complete their wishes while travelling on the road. It's about those who want to take a break from their daily life to fulfil their personal desires," he added.
