‘Tiger Shroff is nice and grounded’

Ac­tor Ab­hishek Ba­jaj is hav­ing the time of his life. The ac­tor has just bagged his first Bol­ly­wood film, the much-an­tic­i­pated se­quel to Stu­dent of the Year (2012), where he will star along­side Tiger Shroff, and fel­low new­com­ers Tara Su­taria and Ananya Pan­day.

“I au­di­tioned for the film, and only af­ter a cou­ple of rounds, got se­lected. I have only given five to six film au­di­tions till date. I did get a film be­fore this, but it didn’t work out,” he shares. How­ever, tak­ing on the project has also meant less sleep for Ab­hishek.

“I have worked for 36 hours straight with­out catch­ing a wink... I sleep while travelling as a so­lu­tion. Also, we are shoot­ing in so many dif­fer­ent places such as Mus­soorie, Rishikesh, Mum­bai, and Pune,” he says.

A lot of TV ac­tors have pro­gressed to Bol­ly­wood suc­cess­fully, and Ab­hishek, known for shows such as Dil Deke Dekho and Par­var­rish, hopes to em­u­late them. Have films been his ul­ti­mate goal? “I feel if you are a good ac­tor, then the medium doesn’t mat­ter. My per­for­mance has to be up to the mark. My goal when I de­cided to be­come an ac­tor, was to act well,” he says.

Ab­hishek is all praises for Tiger Shroff, his co-star in the film. “Tiger is very nice. We bonded well and also share a cou­ple of in­ter­ests, like fit­ness and films. He’s grounded, too. We have many ac­tion se­quences to­gether,” he says.
