Jugal Hansraj back to acting, but on small screen

New Delhi, April 16 (IANS) After winning a National Award for his directorial debut, animated feature film "Roadside Romeo", Jugal Hansraj returns to acting - but only for a cameo on the small screen.

The 38-year-old, who began his career as a child artiste with "Masoom" in 1983, will feature in two episodes of "Rishta.com" that comes on Sony.

"Yes, I am in the next two episodes of 'Rishta.com'! Faced the camera after long. Hope you all enjoy," Jugal posted on his Twitter page Friday.

His first film as a full-fledged actor was "Aa Gale Lag Jaa" (1994). Two years later, he featured in "Papa Kehte Hai" (1996) and then did Yash Raj Films' multi-starrer "Mohabbatein" (2002). After that he did cameos in movies like "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", "Salaam Namaste" and "Aaja Nachle".

In 2008, Jugal turned to direction with "Roadside Romeo" and followed it up with Priyanka Chopra and Uday Chopra-starrer "Pyaar Impossible". Both his films were produced by YRF and his appearance on "Rishta.com", a YRF production venture, indicates his strengthening bond with the Yash Chopra camp.

"Rishta.com" that comes on Sony is about a marriage agency run by four friends.
