The actor recounted some of his colleagues who couldn’t account for a dime after attending the reality show.
In his words, he said:
“There have been cases of reality TV stars coming out (of the show) and not amounting to anything. It was a fear for me. I did not want to be part of reality TV stars who music did not work for.
The end goal of reality TV shows is not to make one a star; it is for them to smile to the bank. And, that is not necessarily a bad thing. It is good that anybody who participates in such shows knows that.
If these shows are not making money, are they doing charity? They will shut down. It is not even personal. I gained from them. People saw my face.”
