The tough showbiz lesson Karan Grover has learnt
Actor Karan V Grover’s (above) debut film Wedding Pullav has received mixed reviews at the box office, and the actor says that his first stint on the silver screen has taught him to be careful about certain aspects of filmmaking.
“I will make sure that I am more thorough about the entire process of filmmaking rather than just my role. I would like to know more about how we are shooting the scenes, and come on board and give suggestions,” says Grover.
“I’ve developed this understanding that just knowing everything about your role is not everything. I will start consulting the right people more, which I did not do with my first film,” he adds.
While Grover is optimistic about his future projects, he does accept that criticism hurts. “One is never ready for criticism. You wonder what you did wrong. But yes, I understand that criticism is very much a part of the profession, like appreciation is,” says the actor.
The actor, who forayed into TV before entering films, says he was prepared for the struggle. “I was never apprehensive about the struggle. I think it is what makes you realise how you started. It keeps you grounded and reminds you that you can’t take your faith and work for granted,” he says.
