Added by harini on Oct 25, 2011

Aamir Khan is all set to make his small screen debut by hosting and producing a show that will showcase the real life stories on small screen.

Aamir Khan said that he is very excited about his debut. He also wished that audience watches and loves his show. But Aamir Khan maintained that he wouldn’t restore to any tricks or Masala to increase the TRP’s of his show.

"I would want more and more people to watch my show just like my films, but that doesn't mean I will add something extra to increase the TRP. I would rather focus on the subject and grab eyeballs. I can't think of adding 'masala' or anything in the format for TRPs. I am sure our TRPs will be good," Aamir told IANS in an interview.

"I don't understand these terminologies. I don't know what USP means. I am not a very good marketing person. I just know my prime responsibility is to make way into people's heart,” he added.

When asked if his debut was coming a bit too late he replied, “I do not think my entry on television is late. I feel everything has a right time. My venture into television is not calculative. There is nervousness, but I am excited and charged up about the show."

“I was sure that if I would do something on television then it has to be different...it has to be something that will connect with the audience,” he added.

He said that though he is excited about the show, he is also nervous as he knows nothing when it comes to making a television show.

"I am sure I will face difficulties when it comes to television...It is a field I know very little about. Fortunately, the people I am interacting with are very bright minded. So I am getting to learn every day. I am trying to absorb as much as I can,"

"There are some advantages for me and some disadvantages. Disadvantage is that I don't know much about TV industry, I lack in terms of knowledge. And the advantage is that because I don't know much, I tend to do things my way, which sometimes surprise these people and they say 'aisa to hota nai hai yahaan', then I cross question them, 'ki kyu nahi hota?',” he added.

He said that his next goal to pen down a book.

"I would want to write a book some day. I would want to pen down my personal journey, my experiences. I would want to write an autobiography some day in future," he concluded.

Aamir Khan isn’t the first Bollywood celebrity to try their luck on small screen. While the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan have found success, Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty have failed to grab eye balls.

It needs to be seen in which category Aamir Khan will fall into.
