It may be hard to believe for his fans, but Rohit Roy, one of the most known faces on the tube, is currently unemployed and says that he is looking for work opportunities.

"I am out of job and have no work. I am being honest that I have no work on television," Rohit, known for his work in TV shows like "Swabhimaan" and "Viraasat" and movie "Shootout At Lokhandwala", told IANS.

"People think I am doing films, so I don't want to act on small screen, which is why I am not called for a lot of stuff. Seriously, maybe you can spread the word and tell people, 'Give him a job!'," added the 43-year-old.

He doesn't mind being honest about his assignment status.

"I am a jobless actor as we speak! I don't believe in making statements like I am reading a script ... I am seriously out of job," he said.

What about hosting a reality show again?

"I am not very comfortable with the kind of reality programme that goes on, especially on a few lifestyle channels and music channels. I am not for those kind of abusive reality shows," said Rohit, who hosted two seasons of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

He is aware of the popularity of such shows, but added: "There is a large number of audience in urban India who are enjoying these shows. It's a free country, but personally, I don't subscribe to such shows."

Rohit's elder brother Ronit is also a popular name on TV and rose to fame with shows like "Kasautii Zindagii Kay", "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" and "Adaalat" and the former feels the new generation of actors do not shine like senior actors did on small screen.

"Young crop of actors are good but, there is no star which I have seen. I do not say this in a condescending manner, I would love to see stars the way there were when we were there.

"There is one Ronit Bose Roy and one Ram Kapoor. Girls are talented and fantastic to look at, but there is no one like Smriti Irani and Sakshi Tanwar. With the new lot, you don't see stars being born with any show," Rohit said.

Asked if there has ever been sibling rivalry between him and his elder brother, the actor says Ronit has always been a father figure to him.

"Ronit is more like my father, although he is not too old - just four years elder to me. There was a time when I was ruling the roost on television and he had no work, but there was never a feeling that, 'Oh god! My younger brother is doing well'.

"Similarly, today he is the king of the television and his film 'Udaan' is the biggest in his career, but he knows that I am happy for him," Rohit said.

    I totally agree wit u.. Der r few new actors well known fa deir characters lyk arnav (barun), Dr.arman (KSG), geet(DD), khushi(sanaya) an so on.. But not to d extent of d earlier ones.. Dey were jus superb, dey were being born wit their characters dat dey played.. Lyk tulsi, prerna, parvati, kashish, sujal, anurag, mihir an many mor..v don even feel lyk usin deir real name.. V r so much involved wit d character.. I want dat charisma to be back on tv.. Shows lyk KZK, KTH,KSBKBT,KGGK were awesom..
