SOME GOOD ADVICE FOR ASPIRING ACTORS
DON’T BE OVER ANALYTICAL: People will tell you that making it big requires hard work, perseverance, dedication, and skill development but all you need is the love for it. It is like playing a video game – when you are totally into it, focusing on one level at a time and loving it, that’s when you’ll do your best.
DON’T DO IT FOR FAME OR MONEY: Ask yourself why you want to do it. I really, absolutely love what I do. If your answer is fame or money, it is not going to work. I come from a middle-class family and there are things I couldn’t afford earlier. I thought it is the money that is keeping me from being happy, but that is not the case. In this profession, if you make it to a certain level, you will have money and fame. But if that is your motivation, then what will you do next? You can’t get more famous after a point and then it becomes a flat graph. It will then fail to make you happy. ENJOY THE JOURNEY: Don’t concentrate on ‘how to get there’, instead enjoy the getting there. I didn’t plan my career and I don’t think that now that I have a sea-facing house in Bandra, I am in a more secure position than I was in the 1RK apartment. There are too many variables in the working. I don’t extend my time to future: it is the present, the now, that I am enjoying.
