Anup Soni’s done with television


Popular television actor Anup Soni says he would now like to do more films. “I want to do more of films now rather than doing television. As an actor, I have done a lot of television I think I need to try something else. It’s mostly all typical work in television. I think film people will take a chance and give me something different to do,” Anup said.

The actor who has been a part of films like “Fiza”, “Raaz”, “Hathyar” and “Gangaajal” among others, says he is looking forward to do good character roles. “For me it is easy to do films as I am not at an age where I want t be a hero or do lead roles. I want to do good and strong character roles. For me it is essential to do substantial and respectful roles,” he adds.

Currently, the 42-year-old actor is busy hosting “Crime Patrol”, a crime reality television anthology series. The series which premiered in 2003, is the longest running reality crime television series in India. “I will not leave the show until and unless the channel stops the show. It’s an important show, it creates awareness. Just because I am labelled as ‘Crime Patrol’ anchor I will not leave the show.”
