‘I’LL NEVER LET ACTING TAKE A BACKSEAT’
Actor Nandish Sandhu (right) has lately expressed his desire to take up new hobbies, learn dance on a professional level and even anchor a show if given a chance, but he says that acting will be his first love forever.
“I have been acting for a really long time and it will never take a backseat for me. I’ll have to take time out to do everything else. I understand how Bombay is, I keep on working... and there is no time to pursue my hobbies,” says Nandish, and adds, “Learning various things completes you as a package, and I want to do that.”
The actor rose to fame after working in daily show Uttaran as protagonist Veer Singh Bundela, but did not take up any prominent show after that. Explaining the reasons behind this, he says, “I did two shows after that. But unfortunately, they didn’t do well. Uttaran was a just in a different league altogether. Our industry is really very unpredictable. Even if a show is doing well, it can be discontinued. May be it’s all luck. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t.”
The television industry is known for being competitive, with the game of TRPs very high but this does not get to Nandish. “There are people who start comparing you with other actors and shows, but what they do not get is that a show is made up of many factors, that its success doesn’t depend on one person alone,” says Nandish.
“I don’t let it get to me. I understand that it’s a tough industry to work in, and I don’t let the pressure bog me down,” he adds.
