Talking about it, Rohit says, "I love Comedy Circus. Judging it, though, it is not an easy proposition. Though I haven't promised anyone as yet, all of them are established actors and I would definitely love to cast some of them in my next film. They are all very talented but some of them like Johny Lever's younger brother Jimmy Moses and Harsh Chhaya (a fun combo), Shweta Tiwari-Rehman Khan and a couple others are on my casting wishlist."
Initially, Rohit was to judge only a couple of episodes but now with Shekhar Suman not doing the show for some time, Rohit will be judging 13 episodes. "The first day was nerve-wracking," confesses Rohit and adds, "I have never been in front of the camera before and it was very bad."
Rohit has no qualms about being directed by someone else. "It's a very peaceful and chilled out atmosphere on the sets. For the first time I am happy not being a director. I don't have to stress as it's not my responsibility. It's a different experience."
After All The Best's success, has Rohit upped his market price? "No, I don't believe in that. All The Best is my favourite film and we have all worked very hard on the film. I have decided to stick to family entertainers from now. I feel we deserve what we get."
Rohit is taking his family for a few days to Amby Valley for a well deserved break after which he starts works on his next. "My mother can't fly and she's joining my wife and son this time so we are driving down to Amby for four days. That's my family's favourite holiday destination."
All The Best director Rohit Shetty will act as a judge on Sony TV's Comedy Circus 3 Teen Ka Tadka along with Archana Puran Singh, beginning October 24. Shetty has now decided to pick up a few artistes from the show for his next film.
