Now my director, producer and most importantly my audience have confidence in me and my craft it was after his Scam that people started approaching me with a script , I was offered a variety of challenging roles.
Your Journey in the Entertainment Industry…
I have been around for the last 17 years.So scam There was an incident that helped my work reach a wider audience. But I come from a theatrical background, so the journey before that was also exciting. There are many artists in my family, but none of them are professional artists. So I am the first person in my family to make a living from art. Theater taught me the craft so well that I was looking forward to going on stage and breathing with the audience. But at some point it reached a saturation level. But theater gave me my first stepping stone. gujarati movies‘rear raju” and received the National Honor Award.

With the advent of OTT, the concept of heroes and heroines has disappeared… Do you think it would have been better if there had been a digital platform from the beginning?
Yes, OTT has brought a lot of changes to the concept of heroes. I’d rather put it this way, everyone is a hero now. It has made great strides in cinematic art in terms of format, content selection. If OTT had been there sooner, I am sure it would have helped me and many other actors who had to wait a long time to get their chance in the entertainment industry.
Is Bollywood losing its swag to local cinema?
Regional films are always rich in content, artist selection and storytelling formats. I feel that regional cinema is always experimenting with new things, unlike Bollywood. Luckily, audience tastes are changing, so awareness is growing.
