Wrestler and actor Sangram Singh says he doesn’t have “time to spare” for daily soaps; adds that reality TV shows are the best way to connect with audiences.

Kabaddi and wrestling may keep him busy, but Sangram Singh feels reality TV shows enable him to stay in touch with the audience. “It is the best way to connect with people,” says Sangram, adding, “I like physically-demanding reality shows, not dance and music shows. I did dance reality shows, but I want to up my game and do something better.”

Sangram is now developing a show of his own. He is also excited about participating in another reality TV show, which is based on an international series. He begins shooting for it next month with co-stars Gul Panag and Varun Sharma. “I will drive trucks in Leh, Ladakh, and Jammu & Kashmir. I took this up as it is exciting,” he says.

Sangram has also acted in a TV serial, and regularly continues to get offers for mythological and historical shows. “I don’t have time to spare for a daily soap; it needs commitment. If I am unable to live up to them, then I shouldn’t give (the makers of TV show) my word. I get film offers too, but they are either small-budget projects or the roles aren’t exciting. If I do a film, it should be worth it. But I am glad that people are coming to me with positive roles [rather than negative ones],” he says.
