Speaking to FPJ, Shaleen says, “It’s been about couple of months since I’ve been away from TV but I’ve been really busy. My last show got a good response. Now, I’ve signed a new show. It’s really different from what I’ve done in the past. I always try to experiment and you will see me in a different role in this show as well. I can’t tell you the details but I am really kicked about the show.”

He adds, “For the last one month, I have spent about 8-9 hours every day preparing for my role. I have even worked on my diction among others. So the role is going to be really interesting. I can assure you that you won’t see the same me!”
