TV will be suicidal right now: Richa Chadda

Mumbai, Aug 8 : Bollywood actress Richa Chaddha, who will be seen in a cameo in Anil Kapoor's TV series "24", has no plans to do television full time.

"I won't be entering the TV industry because I don't think any young, busy actor will have time and commitment to give to TV. At least I don't have it at the present stage. I am doing a cameo in '24'," Richa told IANS.

"It will be suicidal to do TV right now. It is not like the west where actors can have careers in films and TV at the same time. I am talking about successful film actors. I don't think I have the commitment to give to TV. All I could spare was what I needed for '24'," said the actress who has been seen in films like "Gangs of Wasseypur" and "Fukrey".

The show "24" is based on the American series of the same name. It has been written by Rensil D'Silva and produced by Anil.

Talking about the show, she said it will change the face of Indian Television.

"I wanted to work with the production. I know how hard Mr. Kapoor is working. He believes that this is the future of television. It is a series that will change the face of Indian TV from the saas-bahu soaps to something, which is a series kind of thing," she said.

The actress did not reveal her role in the show.

"I can't talk about it. That decision is with the makers. As they seem fit, they must reveal the character. It is interesting... something that someone has not seen me do before," she said.
