Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla found megastar Amitabh Bachchan's character dull in his debut fiction show Yudh.

The actor, who has been roped in as the brand ambassador for Sony Entertainment's new general entertainment channel, said she did not like Big B's character in the show.

"I saw one episode of Yudh and during the show, appeared advertisements of Kaun Banega Crorepati. And he looked so dapper in that. I think I will watch KBC instead of the serial. I found his character dull and may be I don't want to see him in that avatar," Juhi said in an interview here.

Bachchan's Yudh, was touted as one of the biggest shows on the small screen, but it evoked a lukewarm response from the audiences.

The 46-year-old actor, on her part, is open to the idea of working for television, if something exciting comes across.

"It (show) has to be something outstanding and not just any story. I would like to do a show where I can make people laugh and cry, something that adds value to one's life," she added.

The Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak actor said she also does not mind judging reality shows.

"I don't mind... let's see what comes up. I had done one season of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and enjoyed it," she added.

While Juhi detests the typical 'saas-bahu' serials, shows like Mahadev, Jodha Akbar and comedy serials impress her.

"I wonder how a petty issue is dragged for episodes. I don't see all serials but some of them are really good. I like Mahadev, Jodha Akbar and I thought they are very well written and produced," she said.
