As an actor, you should always keep your trump card hidden from your audience. I want the audience to keep expecting more and more from me. I want to do 'different' work - good and memorable roles - so that audience appreciate me more. That's why I love to surprise my audience with something they never expect me to do.
I'm extremely delighted to host the special show 'Dussehra - Jeet Sachchai Kee', which will celebrate the spirit of good over evil. The show will be filled with a heavy dose of entertainment as renowned celebrities from across popular television shows will be joining in the celebrations and saluting the spirit of righteousness.
Be it 'Jhalak', 'Dance India Dance' or 'Nach Baliye', I give all the credit to Ekta Kapoor as, just because of her, I am here. She has an eye to identify the real talent. Instead, I would say she knows how to make things work for her. She is not simply called the queen of Indian Television: she is the tigress of TV, I would say.
My name is not really a common one, but people always tend to mix it up, which is quite embarrassing! As there have been incidents where I would be all ready to go on stage for my performance, and the host would say, 'Ladies and gentlemen please welcome Mr Rithik.' And, I would have to remind them that it isn't Rithik but Rithvik!
