Ac­tor Shashank Arora (right), whose de­but film pro­duced by film­maker Dibakar Ban­er­jee has re­ceived good re­views, says he al­ways wanted to en­ter the pro­fes­sion. How­ever, shoot­ing the film was tough, says Shashank. “I’ve been pre­par­ing to be­come an ac­tor since I was five. But I never re­alised it’d be this tough shoot­ing for my first film. But it has been an un­real bless­ing,” he says, adding, “I got rid of my ner­vous­ness of be­ing in front of a cam­era a while ago. I‘ve been act­ing for seven years now. But we were shoot­ing in a place as big as a bath­room. You are shoot­ing 18 hours a day and sleep­ing for like 5 hours.”

The ac­tor says that he has no spe­cific gen­res in mind which he wants to be part of. “I am not lim­it­ing my­self to gen­res. I am look­ing for a good story. If I like the story then I am on board. It’s as sim­ple as that,” he says.
