Even Bollywood stars are insecure: Raj Singh AroraActor Raj Singh Arora who will soon be seen in channel V's The Serial, gets candid about the insecurities every actor faces, be it Television or Bollywood.
Raj himself was on a long hiatus before signing on Vikas Gupta's The Serial.
"There is not a day when actors are not insecure. Even I was on a break
and was contemplating on changing careers. I went through a reality
check and kept asking myself if it was time to change gears. Even big
stars in Bollywood are insecure. In the last 7-8 years, I would audition
for roles and leave it at that. I have not reached that phase of asking
Adding, "My friends told me that for films I would
have to ask for work. I just wish it was a western scenario where you
auditioned, delivered and got selected".
But Raj is also optimistic about the way television personalities have broken all perceptions. "Thanks to actors like Ronit Roy
, Ram Kapoor
, Sushant Singh
Rajput, Rajeev Khandelwal
and even SRK, people from the film industry are changing their opinions
on TV actors. Four-five years back, no one would consider me because of
my TV background. But in the last two-three years, thanks to these
stars, things have changed".
Adding, "It all depends on how lucky you are. You can't beat that".
