Popular Telugu actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, who considers television as a "potential medium", is keen to make his mark on the small screen too. The King says if he gets the right opportunity, he is open to hosting a TV show.
In a statement to IANS, Akkineni Nagarjuna expressed his viewers on TV industry. The actor said, "I believe there is lot of untapped potential in the television market. With shows such as 'Bigg Boss' and '24' turning out to big hits on TV, I'm interested to be in it." He added, "I would love to host a television show. As soon I get a great concept, I would make my debut on television as well."
Besides being an actor, Nagarjuna is also a successful producer. He is currently producing two television soaps in Telugu. The actor-turned-producer said, "I think it's time for regional television to up the ante, both content as well entertainment wise."
However, Nagarjuna has received a very cold response for his 2013 films Greeku Veerudu and Bhai, which have been back-to-back disasters. The 54-year-old is currently busy shooting for Telugu family-drama Manam. Produced by the actor himself, the movie features his father Nageswara Rao and son Naga Chaitanya alongside him.
