Mumbai: Unravelling the ugly side of Tinselville, ‘Kai Po Che’ actor Amit Sadh stated that he moved to films after being banned by the TV industry.
While speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Amit revealed that he was quite outspoken when he was in his 20s. But his outspoken nature didn’t go down well with many television biggies, who made sure that he was banned by the industry.
“I did not leave television to go to the movies, they banned me. They called each other and said, ‘Isko kaam mat do. Toh phir maine kaha, ‘Achcha? Nahi de rahe ho? Toh phir main picturon mein jaaunga’,” said Amit.
Once Amit got a call from a popular television producer who told him that people in the industry didn’t like him because of his nature even though he was a good actor.
“Maine usko bhi bol diya, ‘Sir, galat karoge, ladunga’,” said Amit.
The actor further said that as he grew older, he learnt to harness his anger and channelise it into doing productive work.
Then, he met some ‘good people’ and his life changed for the good.
Amit began his acting career with the television series ‘Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr’. He made his Bollywood debut with Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Phoonk 2’ in 2010.
Besides ‘Kai Po Che’, Amit has worked in films like ‘‘Guddu Rangeela’, ‘Sultan’, ‘Sarkar 3’ and ‘Gold’.
His latest release on digital platform, ‘Breathe: Into The Shadows’, is doing well and Amit is happy to be receiving positive reviews for his work.
He will next be seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Yaara’, alongside Vidyut Jammwal, Vijay Varma, Shruti Haasan and Sanjay Mishra. The film is scheduled to release on July 30.
