Raj Singh Arora is disappointed with the fact that he will not be doing the upcoming COLORS' show which will be based on Baywatch and Friends.
"I had been short listed and was quite gung-ho about this show produced by noted playwright and director Paritosh Painter. I had even left a couple of other projects for the same. But eventually the channel took a call that they wanted somebody new. It is speculated that even Ali Merchant had been approached but even he was not finally chosen", explains Raj.
Currently Raj is awaiting the release of his debut film Mumbai Cutting. "It's a collection of 10 shorts film based on life in Mumbai. I am doing the film Mumbai High with Arun Mathur( Luck By Chance)", quips the actor.
He is also shooting for more two films. One is Twentieth Century Fox's Vroom and last is UTV Spot Boy's, Peter Gaya Kaam Se. " I play the younger brother of Rajeev Khandelwal in the project", adds he.
Despite doing films Raj will never give up on television. "This medium has lots of exposure and good money. I am in discussion for two more projects; let's see how things work out. Among the three TV shows he has done till date, Raj finds his character (Ashu) in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki as the best. "I got to do action sequences and other interesting stuff. I can also never forget Remix for it was a cult show. He has no regrets for doing 4(SAB TV)as well. "But yes it was quite sad that the difference of opinion between the production house (Edit II) and the channel ruined the show chances, quite early on", concludes Raj.
We hope he charms his female fans by getting back on TV soon!!
