Speaking to Pinkvilla, the Shershaah actor revealed that he received Rs 7000 as his first payment, which he handed to his mother. He also stated that he did not have an account at that time.
Recalling his struggling days, the actor said, “For me being on that first film, you know getting such massive launch is a big milestone in my life. Now when I look back at 10 years okay great I thought that was the difficult part to get in there. But then I realise the struggles one has to be or go through to sustain themselves. It’s a big task to entertain this country and be in this business.”
The actor further went on to say, “It’s like a very far-fetched dream to stay in New Delhi and believe in a service background household middle-class household to believe that you become an actor and be on the big screen. They used to make on me. My family never used to take me seriously. Because it was not something I was open about it as I was a kid. I wasn’t like there. It was only in my late teens I started facing still cameras and all and then that whole thing. People started seeing different aspects.”
