Actor-producer Raghu Ram of "Roadies" fame is aware people perceive him as a "ruthless" man, but he doesn't care.
"Image is something I never think about. It is not something that I cultivated. If people think I'm a ruthless man, maybe I'm not because I'm not what people think of me. And if they think I am a soft guy, then I don't think I am a soft guy just because people think so," Raghu told IANS.
"I have never done anything with the objective of people liking it. If I start doing that, I will fail," he added.
Raghu, whose rough and tough avatar is seen on MTV's youth-based adventure show "Roadies", says he feels satisfied with whatever he does.
"At least at the end of the day, I feel satisfied that I was part of something. That is what I work towards. If somebody likes the tough Raghu, great! If somebody hates the tough Raghu, great," he said in a nonchalant tone.
The 39-year-old has been an actor, producer, host and even a singer. He has recently been nominated in the category of best pop rock single for music band Agnee's number "Manmaani" for the Global Indian Music Awards (GIMA).
Music was a passion for him since a long time. But he wants to take it more seriously now and is open to the idea of crooning songs in future too.
"I wanted to learn music, but could not. I would like to take this forward. Of anything, I love music the most. It is something that gives me a lot of happiness. (But) I don't know if I am good enough," Raghu said.
"If I get another opportunity, I would do it. I'm not looking for an opportunity, but I have a feeling that one of these days I am going to nag Agnee again," he added.
Asked if he is nervous about competing in the same line with established singers like Ujjayinee Roy and Shilpa Rao, the actor said: "I'm excited. Music is something very close to my heart and I love it."
"I know I'm not a trained singer. Getting nominated is way beyond awesome, (especially) being nominated in the same stage as filmy and non-filmy music."

you are just for yourself and that i know very well after watching your show. you called mohit lucky man and vikas won in 9. there wasn't anything fair. you said mohit khud apne aapko lucky kahta hai. what was that you calling him lucky and then all started like ranvijay why he will take panga to whom who are the baap of show. Right there you were just for yourself and in 9 you let vikas won to tell people that roadies is fair but it is not. Vikas was a fighter but was outdated from my point of view. You just let him won to show peoples. Because you read comments what happen in 8. So as i said you are just for yourself. So please don't think everyone is fool here.
