Actor Rajeev Khandelwal will soon be seen on the small screen after a gap of two years with National Geographic’s upcoming show Super Cars. The 35-year-old, who rose to fame with his role in the TV soap Kahin To Hoga, created a national buzz as the host of the controversial reality show Sach Ka Saamna, is excited about exploring technology in his new show."I have no qualms in accepting that I didn’t know about Bentleys till I got on this show," he says. "Being the face of such a classy show is really very exciting. Each episode aims to reveal the science, technology and behind the scenes manufacturing stories of the most sought after super cars such as Porsche GT3 and Rolls-Royce Phantom, among others."
Khandelwal will also host Sach Ka Saama 2. “It will be completely on the same format as the earlier one. We can’t tamper with the show’s DNA. I look forward to host it,” he says.
Though the actor is a fairly fresh in Bollywood, his performance in films such as Aamir and Shaitan has been lauded. In his upcoming film Soundtrack he plays the role of a musician called DJ Ronak. “My character is that of a small town guy who comes to the city with dreams. At the peak of his career, he is diagnosed with a hearing disorder and has to fight his dark side. Playing such an intense character was quite difficult,” he says.
The actor stars opposite actor Soha Ali Khan in the film. He shares his condolences on the demise of Soha’s father, former India cricket captain Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi. “He has been an inspiration for many. I wish Soha and her family have enough courage to deal with the great loss,” says the actor who cancelled a party for Soha after her loss last week.
