TV actor Vishal Karwal, popular for reality shows like Roadies and Bigg Boss, will be seen in a forthcoming episode of crime-based show Encounter.
The show, hosted by actor Manoj Bajpayee, features stories about events that have happened in Mumbai between police and gangsters.
In the episode to be aired on Friday, Vishal essays the role of police officer Vikas Sawant.
"I prefer doing action and adventure. I chose to do Encounter because it had some work for me to do unlike in TV soaps where a female is in the limelight as a lead, and men are not given much preference," Vishal said.
