No good work was coming my way: Amit

Mumbai: Actor Amit Sadh, who is now basking in the glory of the success of 'Kai Po Che', says at one point of time he was frustrated that no good work was coming his way.

"At one point, I felt frustrated as I was not getting good work. I has started doubting myself. There are people who will either encourage you or discourage you. I felt was I doing the right thing by being in this profession of acting? I think somewhere the destiny plays an important role," Amit said.

"In my case, Gattu's (Abhishek Kapoor, director of 'Kai Po Che') offer came to me. It was a great feeling then," he said.

Amit started his acting career on television. He appeared in a series of TV soaps including Neena Gupta's production 'Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr' and 'Kohinoor'. He also took part in the first season of the reality show 'Bigg Boss'.

"It is an avenue to do or get work. TV is a huge medium. I am proud of television," Amit told PTI.

On being asked whether he would appear in TV serials again, Amit said, "If I get something nice and interesting to do on TV I will do it. I am not against TV. There is no specific destination. As an actor wherever I get good work I will do it. Presently, I feel I am getting to do good work in films."

'Kai Po Che' is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's third novel 'The Three Mistakes of My Life' and also stars two more newcomers – Sushant Singh Rajput and Raj Kumar Yadav. The film directed by Abhishek Kapoor released on February 22 and has garnered good reception from the audience.

 
"I am getting a lot of warmth and love from the industry. I am happy about it. There are wonderful people around who believe in your talent," Amit said.

"I am not a shy person… so I don't shy away from anything. I won't shy away meeting people and asking for work," he added.

Amit has now signed his next film with UTV Motion Pictures, who had also backed 'Kai Po Che'.

"I have signed another film with UTV and they will make an official announcement about it. It will be a funnier and lighter. It will be a beautiful film. I am grateful to them for believing in my talent," he said.

Amit says even though he struggled for close to six years, but his journey in this profession has been good.

"The journey was great, as I decided to be an actor. But I knew nothing about acting and films. I struggled for close to six years. I was unprepared and unaware about what to do. I was struggling, but I did not lose hope… I kept working and trying things out," he said.
