Television actor Gurmeet Choudhary, who has signed a three-film deal with Mahesh Bhatt's production house, is busy preparing for his Bollywood debut.

The film, Khamoshiyaan When Silence Speaks, requires him to learn the nuances of gymnastics. Says the actor, "I have thoroughly researched all my roles on TV and now, I am doing the same for my film. I'm working on my body and training in gymnastics. We will have workshops, but I prefer to prepare from my end."

So is it goodbye to the small screen? "No way. TV has given birth to me as an actor. I will keep my connect with it in some way or the other," he sums up.
