Rahul is contemplating on making his debut on the small screen. He said, “Yes, I have been offered an important role on the show. But I am still thinking about it. There are various reasons for it. Firstly, I have other commitments. Secondly, my son is studying in Delhi, and being a single parent, I keep traveling between Delhi and Mumbai. So that takes up a lot of my time. Working in a daily soap demands regular shoots with long and tiring working hours.”
Having worked in Hindi, Punjabi and South films, Rahul has no qualms about working on television now. “There is no small screen or big screen. In fact, television is a huge medium attracting viewers from every segment of the society,” he says.
