Actor Arjun Kapoor, who made his small screen debut as the host of reality TV show Khatron Ke Khiladi - Kabhi Peeda Kabhi Keeda, says he has a "selfish motive" behind joining the television show.
"Maybe, people might like my work in TV and would love to watch my films in future. Maybe, after this, I can get more people to watch my films, so doing TV is a very selfish motive".
The Ishaqzaade actor also said that he doesn't understand the economics and dynamics of TV.

"I am more of a cinema goer... As an actor I know TV provides you an opportunity to connect with so many people. I am proud of Salman Khan - we all know he is doing really well. But TV is a medium where nobody can teach you, it's all about your personality".
He also spoke about the differences between acting and hosting shows.
"With acting you can understand the process, but when it comes to hosting, there is no character, no dialogue or scripts. It's pure improvisation and at the same time you have to connect with the audience".
Khatron Ke Khiladi, an adaptation of the American television show Fear Factor - which features celebrity contestants facing their fears - will be shot extensively in Argentina.
Featuring 14 contestants, the show went on the air on 30 January. It will be aired every Saturday and Sunday.
On the silver screen, Arjun will be seen playing a house husband in R Balki's upcoming film Ki and Ka. The film also features Kareena Kapoor Khan.
