Veteran actor Dharmendra is set to make his TV debut with India's Got Talent 3 but refuses to call it the small screen, pointing out that it was the a magic of television that made "my younger brother Amitabh Bachchan Big B".
"Why do you call television the small screen? It's this medium that made my younger brother Amitabh Bachchan Big B. It's with his Kaun Banega Crorepati that he got the title of Big B. So, there is nothing like the big screen or small screen," Dharmendra, brimming with zest and zeal, told reporters here. He will judge the show with actresses Sonali Bendre and Kirron Kher.
The 75-year-old's strong bonding with Amitabh from Sholay has been an example of brotherly love for years and he says he would be lucky if they could work together in a project anytime soon.
"I will have to talk it out with him, work it out with him. He has his own commitments, his prior engagements and if in between we get a chance, I will be lucky," said Dharmendra whose actress wife Hema Malini featuers in Amitabh's home production Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap.
India's Got Talent 3 travels to different cities across India in search of local talent. The show that will be aired on Colors channel will be anchored by actor-singer-dancer Meiyang Chang and model Gautam Rode.
In season one, Sonali, Kirron and filmmaker Shekhar Kapoor were seen as judges and in the second season, filmmaker Sajid Khan replaced Kapoor.
