Chennai: Popular Telugu actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, who considers television as a "potential medium", is keen to make his mark on the small screen too if he gets the right opportunity. He says he is open to hosting a TV show.

"I believe there is lot of untapped potential in the television market. With shows such as `Bigg Boss` and `24` turning out to big hits on TV, I`m interested to be in it," Nagarjuna said.

"I would love to host a television show. As soon I get a great concept, I would make my debut on television as well," he added.

Besides being an actor, Nagarjuna is also a successful producer. He is currently producing two television soaps in Telugu.

"I think it`s time for regional television to up the ante, both content as well entertainment wise," he said.

After facing two back-to-back disasters with films `Greekuveerudu` and `Bhai`, the 54-year-old is currently busy shooting for Telugu family-drama `Manam`, also featuring his father and son.
