TV star Parvesh Rana, who is making his debut in films with Tigmanshu Dhulia's "Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns", says he took tips from his police inspector father for his character in the film

Parvesh, 28, is playing a pivotal role of an IPS officer from UP in the romantic thriller, which also stars Irrfan Khan, Mahi Gill, Jimmy Shergill and Soha Ali Khan. "It feels great when you work with such a brilliant director and actors. It enhances your performance and pushes yourself to give your best shot. I am playing a cop in the film and took tips from my family.

My father is a police inspector and he helped me to get my body language and attitude right," Parvesh told PTI. Parvesh, who rose to fame with his stint in reality show 'Bigg Boss 3', says he has been rejecting many film offers from the past few years before saying 'yes' to Dhulia. "I always wanted to be an actor but was never desperate to bag a project.

I have been getting many film offers since I came out of the 'Bigg Boss' house three years ago. "But somehow I was not convinced with the directors and the producers of those projects. I grabbed the opportunity with both the hands when Tigmanshu asked me to audition for the role," he said. With his debut, Parvesh will join the league of other TV hosts including Ayushmann Khurrana and Manish Paul who have joined Bollywood recently and are doing well.

Parvesh feels there is a great change in the industry. "Our film industry is very accommodating and shares its space with everyone. People from TV joining the industry is a good move.

There were times when TV people would never get a chance in films," he said. Parvesh is currently hosting the current season of reality show 'Emotional Atyaachar' and says after being the part of the show from last two seasons he ha learnt a lot about personal relationships. "After listening and talking to the innocent people, I have also learnt a lot about relationships in life," he said.
