The “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” helmer, who is all set to judge singing show “Dil Hai Hindustani”, said: “I don’t think there is anything left on television that I didn’t do. From judging the dancing, hosting a show to now judging a singing show, I’ve covered it all.

 “I am more of a television personality now and films seem to be an incidental part of my personality.”

The 44-year-old was speaking at the press conference of Star Plus’s new show on Tuesday.

The “Kapoor & Sons” producer who has served as a judge on the reality shows “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and “India’s Got Talent” added: “Wherever I go, people ask me more about talent shows or the talk show and it’s very embarrassing. Sometimes, I have to tell them I am a filmmaker and a producer too.”

Karan however feels that the impact of the small screen is huge.

“I think the impact of television is huge. It is important to know for us that three percent people of our country watch films whereas 25 percent people watch television. It’s nine times more impactful,” he said.
