along with actress Neha Dhupia.

want to do TV. This opportunity came and I felt it was best
offer. I liked the concept and agreed to be part of it. I do
watch comedy shows on TV. Apart from that I also see dance
show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa," Tusshar said.
"Today TV has a wider reach. It is much bigger today.
TV offers lots of things to viewers from family shows, reality
shows and etc. It is an exciting time to be on small screen,"
