Film stars suit reality TV shows better: Juhi Chawla

Veteran actor Juhi Chawla believes in the power of the TV medium but says film actors better fit reality shows because they offer them a different experience.

‘I have not seen many people from films being able to do fiction,’ Juhi said here.

‘A lot of people do feel it's good, but I feel doing a reality show is better suited for film actors.’
‘In a fiction show, they will still be playing a star in a story. Reality shows are still different,’ she added.

Her thoughts come as an extension of her recent comment that she found megastar Amitabh Bachchan's look in game show Kaun Banega Crorepati  more ‘dapper’ than in his debut fiction show Yudh.

But brushing off the ‘extent to which the statement has been blown up’, she said that while she had not followed Yudh, she loves Big B in Kaun Banega Crorepati.

The actress, who charmed movie audiences with her performance in films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Aaina, Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke and Darr, has recently been roped in as the face of Multi Screen Media's new Hindi general entertainment channel SONY PAL.

Having featured as a judge in non-fiction shows such as Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 3 and anchored a children's chat show Badmaash Company  in the past, Juhi is game for more on the television reality shows particularly.

The actress was offered a fiction show on TV, but it wasn’t the best time for her to take it up.
