Can’t do daily soaps: Gurmeet
After his successful stint on television in shows such as Geet...Hui Sabse Parayi and Punar Vivaah, Gurmeet Choudhary (right) is now trying to make his mark in Bollywood.
“It is difficult, but it is not impossible to make a foothold in the film industry. It is difficult to reach this far especially when you’re not from a film family. But I have come a long way from being no one, to doing television shows to films,” said Gurmeet, who made his Bollywood debut with Khamoshiyan (2015), and then went on to do Wajah Tum Ho (2016) and now Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laddoo Deewana. Though his films haven’t been box-office successes, this hasn’t dampened his spirit.
“I was sad (referring to failure of his films) as I thought those films were good. But fortunately my work was appreciated. The best part is I am getting work,” he says.
The actor believes in working hard and giving his best.“The positive thing is that the film industry is helpful to those who are talented and grounded. I am a small-town boy who first did television and now doing films. There are so many who want to get into acting but don’t get opportunities,” he says.
The 33-year-old actor isn’t too keen on returning to television and do daily soaps. “I can’t do daily soaps. But it would be wrong to say that I will not do television ever. It depends on the content of the show,” he says.
