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.
