Mumbai, July 6 (IANS) Actress Surbhi Chandna opted to feature in a TV show rather than a Bollywood movie. She feels “TV has a bigger reach than films”.
The actress, who was seen in “Bobby Jasoos”, says she “would rather be famous on TV and be recognised for my work than start afresh in Bollywood”.
Surbhi, who is seen as Annika in the Star Plus show “Ishqbaaaz”, refrains from naming the films that were offered to her. She said: “I had offers from Bollywood specifically to star in various movies”.
“TV is the next big thing. It has a bigger reach than films because of which I chose to continue my stint on television and not venture into films,” Surbhi said in a statement.
She added: “Every second day there are various film integrations on our shows and Bollywood celebrities come to promote their movies on our shows. Even a superstar like Amitabh Bachchan is time and again making his presence felt on television.
“TV today reaches out to triple the people that films do. As for me, I’d rather be famous on TV and be recognised for my work here than start afresh in Bollywood.”
