Aparshakti is a patient person when it comes to screen time
Actor Aparshakti Khurana is on a roll. After featuring in Stree, which has been doing very well at the boxoffice, he’s currently filming for Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon-starrer Luka Chhuppi.
While most actors aim to get bigger roles with more screen time, Aparshakti’s approach towards work is different. He says, “See, audience get affected by the amount of time they (actors) are visible onscreen, and so do the artists. So far, I’ve been able to be a patient person who thinks that screen time shouldn’t be chosen over better characters.”
He adds, “[Often] films that give you screen [time] don’t give you an opportunity to highlight the character in the way it should be. Unn filmon ka normally faayda hota nahi hai,” says Aparshakti.
However, he doesn’t rule out the fact that someday he may change his stance .
“It will sooner or later happen, but I don’t have to make a conscious effort to just go for screen space. Already, things have shaped up in a nice, hunky-dory way. I’ve been working with really good intentions. I’m definitely choosing good characters over everything,” he says.
“This is the main reason people like you or friends call and message saying ‘I liked your work’. I get messages from school friends on Instagram and mobile. If I get picky, these people will stop messaging me and I don’t want them to. It’s as simple as that,” laughs Aparshakti.
