Sasural Simar Ka’s Dheeraj Dhoopar wants to star in a romantic TV show

Actor Dheeraj Dhoopar has been part of family sagas for a long time, but he is aiming to take up a romantic show now.

“I want to do something very romantic, explore this genre and collaborate with a top producer. This is the genre I love most and I portray the character well. I’m waiting for the biggest show of my career, which would be a romantic show,” says Dhoopar, who plays Prem in popular daily show Sasural Simar Ka.

With plenty of romantic shows cropping up on the small screen, the competition is on the rise. However, Dhoopar is unperturbed.
“Whenever I get the right show, I will prove my worth. Every actor has a certain characteristic about himself or herself which makes them different from others. I, too, have my selling point,” says the actor, who has been part of shows such as Behenein, Mr Tendulkar and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge.

Dhoopar — who is also a budding fashion designer — feels television can offer better content. “People are accepting whatever content is being offered. (But) we still need to get better storylines. We are lacking somewhere in terms of content… otherwise everything else from business to popularity, Indian television is doing a great job,” he says.
