Eijaz Khan says television is an "extended reality" and there will be plenty of opportunities for him on the small screen, but he is keen to explore other mediums across the globe.

"Television is an extended reality. Whatever we do on TV, it happens in real life too. So if I can convince myself, I can convince the audience. You can bring so many new things. There will never be a dearth of characters for me," he told IANS.

The same character can be played in different ways, he feels.

"It is up to the actor what new (element) an actor can bring into a tried and tested role. If it is a negative role, I can do it in so many different ways," said Eijaz.

Not new to the small screen, Eijaz had his share of success with shows like "Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat - Kutumb", "Kavyanjali", "Kyaa Hoga Nimmo Kaa" and "Shubh Vivah" among others.

He also had his stint on the big screen with films like "Tanu Weds Manu" and "Kuch Naa Kaho". His next is "Lucky Kabootar". Produced by Karan Raj Kanwar, it has been directed by Shammi Chhabra and Eijaz says the role fell into his lap.

"I was looking forward to doing a film. 'Lucky Kabootar' fell into my lap. It comes from a very respectful man. The story was appealing and the director was young," he said and added it's important for him to work with like-minded people.

"I work with people who I can relate to and I like. In this production, it was like working with a friend."

Kulraj Randhawa and Shraddha Das will be seen in the female leads along with Ravi Kishan, Madhvi Sharma, Sanjay Mishra and Atul Mathur.

"Our target audience is people who want to watch good films," he said.

Recently, he made theatre debut with "The Seduction" and wants to keep on trying new things.

"I want to explore all mediums. I want to go to Hollywood and try that medium, try Broadway...I want to go to Canada and try out the television they have there. I want to do everything," he said.
