Bollywood actor Ruslaan Mumtaz is excited about his debut on television and considers small screen as a powerful medium to reach out to people.
Ruslaan, son of actress Anjana Mumtaz, features in Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zaara, a romantic drama which will be aired on Sony Entertainment channel from August 15.
The 31-year-old, who made his Bollywood debut with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar in 2007, is paired opposite Sangeeta Ghosh, a well-known TV actress who became a household name with her character Pammi in hugely popular show Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand.
"The team involved in the show is fantastic - Sangeeta Ghosh, Siddharth Sengupta, Niranjan Iyengar and others. For me to refuse such an offer would have been stupid because if these people ever make a film I might not feature in that film and the only way to work with them is on TV," he told.
Ruslaan said he was nervous working with Sangeeta. "I always worked with new actors; I never worked with established actors. I needed to be a little bit prepared while doing scenes with her," he said.
