Mumbai, March 20 -- Rithvik Dhanjani has hosted and participated in almost a dozen reality television shows since he rose to fame with the hit TV show, Pavitra Rishta, in 2009. 


However, he hasn't acted in many shows in his nine years in the industry, and he's now looking to return to acting. Rithvik recently signed a web series produced by Ekta Kapoor, co-starring Anita Hassanandani. 


Speaking about the show, he says, "When I head the narration of the web series, I loved it so much that I agreed to do it right then. The web series has an experimental quality, which drew me to it. It is a different take on modern relationships and how technology affects them."


Rithvik has been shooting for the project besides "a few other things as well". He says, "There will be a film announcement soon. This year, I will be acting a lot. I never plan for things in my career. I choose projects that I like, be it hosting or acting."


Two years ago, Rithvik had signed Ekta Kapoor's erotic film, XXX, which has yet to see the light of day. However, the actor says that projects that never release are "a part and parcel of the job". 


"Some things work out and others don't. That doesn't take anything away from me. I am doing a lot of interesting projects on the non-fiction sphere on television. I will keep doing that. I am always making a conscious effort to change the direction of my career. I have always experimented with new formats of non-fiction shows on TV, and I think I am probably the only host who has been part of so many diverse reality shows in India. Everyone works according to their ideologies and I don't worry about the conventional thinking of people who might peg me in a different light."
