Mumbai: Rohit Roy wants to do a show like 'House of Cards' which he feels is challenging and out-of-box.

Rohit, known for his role in serials like 'Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand' and 'Swabhimaan', was last seen as Kabir in Zee TV's fiction show 'Hitler Didi'.

"I would love to come back on TV, but I want to do something really different and challenging. I like 'House of Cards'. It is an amazing political drama show. I would love to do something like this on TV. It is fantastic," Rohit told us in an interview.

"For me it's not only my role that matters, there are other things also that I look for, like the story and how other characters will shape up in the show, how it will be positioned. It is about the entire package," he said.

'House of Cards' is an American political drama television series. The series is primarily about ruthless pragmatism and manipulation.

Rohit feels TV has a lot of variety to offer these days and he hopes something exciting will come his way soon.

"There are lots of options for TV actors to choose from like drama, comedy, crime, reality shows etc. It is good time for actors to be on TV. Now is the time to experiment on TV as small screen has got restructured," Rohit said.
