New Delhi: While most big production banners and filmmakers have tried their hand at TV, which they consider no more a "small screen" now, filmmaker Subhash Ghai says he is too big for the 'idiot box'.

Ghai's past few directorial ventures, including "Black & White" and "Yuvvraaj", didn't do well at the box office, but TV is not something that excites him.

Asked why doesn't he try making something for the TV, Ghai told IANS: "I don't think that I can go on to make a TV show because TV is too small for me. I have made films for larger than life things."

"I would rather go for education and cinema, promote classical music, dance and our ancient culture - which are big things rather than making shows."

In the past, Ghai has made films as varied as "Karz", "Ram Lakhan", "Khalnayak", "Saudagar" and "Taal".
