TV's Maharana Pratap fan of Bollywood's Akbar!

Actor Faisal Khan, who is happy to play the titular role in new TV show "Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap", says he is a fan of actor Hrithik Roshan, who essayed the role of Akbar in the movie "Jodhaa Akbar".

It's not just Hrithik's acting or dancing skills that have left 15-year-old Faisal starry eyed about the star.

"Hrithik is a full package - good looks, a good dancer, amazing body... so he has everything. I have watched his movies. I loved his acting in 'Koi...Mil Gaya'. His performance as Rohit was amazing," said Faisal, who had won reality show "Dance India Dance Li'l Masters 2".

In terms of the actresses, he is smitten by Sonakshi Sinha, and he loves her talent in "Rowdy Rathore".

"Her expressions are amazing. She dances from her heart," he said.

"Bharat Ka Veer Putra..." went on air Monday on channel Sony.

Lazy Karanvir scared of himself for 'Jhalak...'

Actor Karanvir Bohra is excited to shake a leg on "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa", but rather than worrying about his competitors on the dance reality show, he says he is most scared of himself because he is a lazy bum.

Karanvir said he is extremely lazy, and that could come in the way of his success on the show.

"I am scared of myself the most as I am the laziest. If I don't rehearse, then the worst dancer will also do better than me. This will be the biggest challenge for me," Karanvir told IANS.

He feels the show's experience is "petrifying".

"It is very scary. I took part last year also in one episode. That was fun. Right now, this is so stressful. We have to do this every single day. Just to be there and perform is scary," he added.

Karanvir is otherwise a trained in Kathak.

"I know how every dance form should look, but I was not trained until Farah Khan suggested that my wife and I should do something in classical. So, we learnt Indian classical for two and a half years," he said.

"Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" will go on air on Colors starting June 1.
