Although he will be seen on screen af­ter a gap of 15 years, ac­tor Omkar

Kapoor (left), who was a child artists in films such as Ju­daai (1997) and Jud­waa (1997) , says he never let his dream of be­com­ing an ac­tor slip by. “I have acted in so many films as a child. I had roles in Ma­soom, Ju­daai… And I have also as­sisted in di­rec­tion. I wanted to be­come an ac­tor right from the start. Pad­haai mein kabhi dhyaan nai laga and act­ing never seems liked work,” he says.

Omkar says his jour­ney is very dif­fer­ent than when he was a child ac­tor. “My jour­ney is very dif­fer­ent now and I am not in a hurry. I am will­ing to wait, but in the long run I want to play roles that will be re­mem­bered,” he says.

The ac­tor, who will be seen in the se­quel of Pyaar Ka Punch­nama (2011), says that he wants to do dif­fer­ent films. “I want to ex­plore all gen­res. I don’t re­ally have a plan. I am just wait­ing for a bril­liant script. It can be in any genre as long as the role is strong and there is a good di­rec­tor,” he says. Omkar is also happy that his char­ac­ter is sim­i­lar to how he is in real life. “I can re­late to it, which is great as this was my first film. I was asked to be nat­u­ral, which worked for me,” he says.
