TV actor Priyanshu Jora says that he wanted to take up films after his show, 24, however, he didn’t get good offers.

Television actor Priyanshu Jora, who features in Bade Bhaiyya Ki Dulhaniya says that bagging a second show is tougher than getting a break on TV.

“I got my first break with 24, and people told me that now it’ll be easier for me to bag roles. But it only got tougher. After being part of a big show, you have quite a choice of projects. But you need to be careful with what you come on board with. This makes it more challenging,” says Priyanshu, who did the show Tu Mera Hero.

“The challenge is to get on board with the right show. Whether this is tough or not also depends on the space you want to be in. If you are ready to work in any show, then this will not be tough for you,” he adds.

Priyanshu is particular about the work he wants to take up. “If a story is not about me, I won’t get on board with it. I want my shows to run on my shoulders. It’s not like I have decided to stay away from certain shows, but I want to take up shows which are unique and fresh and not something which has been made before,” he said.

In fact, the actor adds that TV was no longer on his wish list after 24. “I had decided that I will go straight into films. But the offers which I got were not really what I was looking for. This is why I decided to take on another show,” he says.
