Shah Rukh, Salman and aamir khanThree of Bollywood's famous Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir - have already had a taste of the small screen, but Saif Ali Khan is happy being distant from it. Neither does he enjoy the drama content, nor does he find any entertainment in reality TV.

"I don't know about acting on TV. I feel we need great content on TV. As of now, it is cornered by housewives, and I feel there's a need for content for young boys. Our TV is not as good," Saif told IANS.

As a viewer, he enjoys watching TV, and believes it shouldn't be called an "idiot box".

"I like to watch a few episodes of British and American shows once in a while, and one has to admit that the quality of some of their shows is as good as movies somehow," he added.

Saif, who was recently seen in his home production "Go Goa Gone", says no-no to Indian TV reality shows as well.

"I can't bear reality TV. Why would I want to watch all of that? I don't like shows like 'Big Brother'. I like drama," he said.

While Saif has kept away from the small screen, his veteran actress mother Sharmila Tagore has earlier judged music reality show "Dhoom Macha De", and actress sister Soha Ali Khan has hosted "Khelo Jeeto Jiyo".

    From my point of view tv shows are much better. First there are not girls in short short clothes (if she isnt the villian. But still she has a limit of shortness of her cloths) second thing is that many off the shows are not copy of other shows!!! Some atleast!!!
