Lucknow, Jun 15 (UNI) Apparently reluctant to leave the silver screen, the 'mast girl' of Bollywood Urmila Matondkar today said she was more attracted towards the small screen for its wide arena.

''TV keeps me more close to the people as it is being watched every week rather than the big screen, where the actor has to wait for his film and the response of the people,'' she said.

Urmila said being a judge on a reality show was harder than hosting it as judging needs lots of experience and sometimes wrong judgement can create fuss. ''On the other hand hosting a show only needs hard work,'' she said.

Urmila along with music director Jatin and TV producer Gajendra Singh was in the city to promote the reality show on classical singing 'Waar Parriwar' being telecast on Sony television from Monday to Wednesday.

Talking to mediapersons the 'Rangeela' girl said she was working in three big banner films. Suniel Shetty produced 'EMI' starring her and Sanjay Dutt would be released next month, while in the remake of 'Karz' she will be playing the role of Simi Garewal. She was also doing Nikhil Advani's animated film ''Aab Dilli Door Nahi''.

When asked if she fumbled in the recently held IIFA awards in Bangkok, Urmila blamed the media for raking up the issue. ''The IIFA awards would be telecast on next Saturday, where people will see me rocking and not fumbling,'' she claimed.

The Bollywood actor also appreciated the concept of her show 'Waar Parivar' claiming that it was the only reality show which ''attaches us with the traditional classical music of the country.'' Urmila is hosting the show in which seven families or musical gharanas are fighting out.

She also asked the people to watch out for tomorrow's disco episode, which will certainly rock them.

Music director Jatin, who was also seen as a judge in a Zee Tv musical show earlier, said all the teams in the show had good potential and they had really done a good job to promote the classical music in the country.

All the families participating in the show were formally trained and had strong musical background, he added.

The teams, Ali Family from Kanpur, Pujabi Mausere Bhai from Chandigarh and the Rizvi family from Mumbai, were also present and sung few songs urging the people to vote for them.

Later, the teams and other stars would perform in front of the Lucknowiets this evening.
