With each generation something new has evolved and a unique form of art was cultivated and presented to the audience.However, Bollywood had always had the stereotype of having a good looking, handsome one as a Hero.

He left the job of petrochemical company for all he thought it’s not meant for him and wanted to carry forward his passion for acting. Though, he wasn’t from very poor family but for bearing his own expenses he had to do a job of security guard for a year. He continued doing stage shows and street plays for social awareness. He kept on doing plays,short roles in films and TV before he was recognized by the audience. It’s his determination, patience and perseverance that made him the actor we see at present.

Unfortunately, he didn’t get the kind of reception he was expecting and had to wait really long before notching a big role in Black Friday. He did not refuse to work, he worked hard and took every role seriously be it small or not.

A time will come when no one will try to make such cinemas because that’s not commercial.
