Nandish Sandhu who has been receiving positive acclaims for his simplistic and genuine role of Veer in Colors
; was recently approached to be one of the participants of Big Boss 4, but his busy shooting schedules couldn't buy a 'yes' from him for the reality show.
So we talked to Nandish Sandhu at the on location of Uttaran
to know his take on reality shows, to which he politely replied, "Reality shows I feel has become a boom since a couple of years. And the best part about reality shows is that when an actor does a reality show like Big Boss, Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao
, etc people recognize them as the person they are in real life apart from just the character they play and if we participate in some talent based show then we get an opportunity to display our talents."
When probed him to know then why he didn't accept Big Boss participation call he smiling said, "See Big Boss is the biggest reality show that fetches the highest TRP's on TV in India. So it's not that I'm not interested in getting associated with the show but I'm badly stuck with the shootings of Uttaran
and I hardly get a week off. And participating in Big Boss means complete isolation from the outside world so at present it is not possible. But even if this year I could work out something then I would love it."
As its quite public that in reality shows people try to portray a fake side within them to gain sympathy votes so we asked Nandish how would he tackle the situation to which in a simplistic tone he replied, "I won't change my behavior according to the situations but instead I would prefer being myself. Because we are there to entertain people and not play games and make plots. If I need to dance or sing to entertain the audience I would surely do it but won't be fake."
Later, when we talked to know his opinion on the effect of reality shows on the TRP's of daily soaps, he signed off saying, "Yes it does effect the TRP's because people enjoy watching reality shows as it gives them an opportunity to know the real life of the actors and they are interested in knowing what happens behind the scenes. So reality shows do have a very huge audience."
