His great success with reality game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan notwithstanding, the actor could not strike big with his fictional show Yudh. Big B, however, says he will try the genre again, hopefully with something "breakaway".

Yudh, a psychological thriller directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, was aired in 2014. A 20-episode mini-series, it also featured actors like Sarika, Zakir Hussain, Mona Wasu, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kay Kay Menon in prominent roles, but didn't work well with viewers.

Asked what went wrong with Yudh, Big B said, "People didn't like it, so it didn't work. Just by acting well things don't work. People should like the story. They didn't like that. We will try our hands (at TV) again in future."

Big B says he is still open to try something interesting on TV. "I'm open to try it if there is something interesting. We did Yudh, it didn't work. When we sat down with Anurag (Kashyap), we felt we need to do something breakaway from the current style of serials. I think that will prevail in the times to come. We made an attempt, we will try again and see how it goes," he added.
