Table No. 21: Rajeev Khandelwal gets a taste of his own medicine

The Sach Ka Saamna host had his ‘moment of truth’

Actor Rajeev Khandelwal, who hosted the popular Sach Ka Saamna show, will now be seen playing a similar truth-and-lie game in the forthcoming film Table No. 21. He admits he got a taste of his own medicine.

“It was tough to sit on the seat. When I used to host that show, I always used to say that it is not easy to sit on that chair. It was my first-hand experience to sit on the chair in Table No. 21. Hats off to those who came on my show and sat in front of me and faced those questions,” the 37-year-old said at the first look launch of Table No. 21 in Mumbai.

The small screen heartthrob, thanks to his popular show Kahiin Toh Hoga, has mostly done offbeat films like Aamir, Shaitaan and Soundtrack. Only scripts with a soul and sensibility inspire him and good scripts make an actor’s job much easier, said Rajeev.

Table No. 21 also stars Paresh Rawal and Tena Desae and is slated for a January 4 release next year.

Aamir was a wonderful script, so is Table No. 21 . I like scripts which have a soul and some kind of sensibility. An actor’s work becomes a lot easier if the script is good. You are not lost in the film…I also attempted Will You Marry Me; it didn’t work,” Rajeev said.

“But I think it’s more of the script. As Pareshji said, you’ll understand what the movie is about after you see it. I am sure once you walk out of the cinema hall, you’ll say it was a good script and film,” he added.
