Television's Duryodhan Arpit Ranka known for his role in the Indian mythological drama show Mahabharat might have been away from the small screen for a while now, but the actor has an interesting line up of television shows and films that he's working on. While talking to Times Of India, Arpit said that he might have been stereotyped for the sort of roles he's always played, but its not everybody's cup of tea.
The actor said, "I have got a lot of offers, but they were all for a mythological show or a historical drama. I think it's also because of my look, but honestly, I don't feel bad about it. Har kisi ke bas ki baat nahi hai aise roles karna. Agar kisi saas-bahu wale ladke ko bolo aise roles karne ko toh woh nahi kar payega. For such roles, it's important to have a personality and I have got that. While others find such roles difficult, I feel really proud that I can do justice to them,".
Talking about the less known side of the showbiz industry, the actor said no matter what one does and how much effort they put in, growth of the career is limited. He said, "It definitely gives you popularity, but you only get to experiment in films. That's why I am also trying my luck in films. I have a couple of offers as well, but I don't want to take up just anything. As an artist, I respect myself and I will only do work that challenges me. I want to play a positive character, maybe one of those lover boys on TV and experiment a little."
When asked if he's interested in being a part of any reality show, especially Bigg Boss, the actor said that he's really short tempered an that would make him an easy target among the other contestants. Saying how his wife would like to see him on the reality show, he said, "My wife watches all reality shows and her favourite is 'Bigg Boss'. She wants me to participate, but is also sceptical about it. Honestly, I really don't want to do a reality show again."
"I was the first choice for the show. Whatever they might say, height was never the reason for my exit. Nirbhay Wadhwa is five inches shorter than me. I had almost signed the agreement, but I had a couple of issues. They didn't replace me, I walked out of the show,", he concluded by clarifying his exist from the show Qayamat Ki Raat.
