I will always be a Bhojpuri superstar: Ravi Kishan
Mumbai: Actor Ravi Kishan, who is one of the contestants on the forthcoming season of dance show `Jhalak Dikhla Jaa`, says he will never leave Bhojpuri cinema and wants to retain his identity as the superstar there.
"How can I say good bye to Bhojpuri films. It is that industry that gave me name and from there I came to `Bigg Boss`. I am a Bhojpuri superstar and I will like to be known like that… that is my identity," Kishan told PTI.
"Bhojpuri cinema to me is like my mother and I can never leave it. I will never say no to my mother. It has given me everything in life, so no matter how big a film I do I will always be a Bhojpuri superstar," he said.
Earlier, Ravi had said he was tired doing the same kind of work that after acting in 165 movies for nearly a decade.
But now he has an interesting mix of Bollywood films waiting to hit the screens, including `Zila Ghaziabad` with Sanjay Dutt and Vivek Oberoi, `Mohalla Assi` with Sunny and `Issaq` with Prateik and a Yash Raj film that he signed recently.
As of now, Kishan is looking forward to JDJ-5. "I am here to improve myself in dancing. I am here to impress my daughter Reva. I just want my daughter to say wow when I dance…I don`t understand competition and all. I am fantastic in desi dance but I would like to learn other dance forms. I have surrendered myself for this show," he said.
This is the second time he is participating in a reality show.
