Well, Telly Buzz has no intention to disappoint the viewers anymore as we caught up with this actor to know What If… he was not an actor and what he has been with these days.
Well, here is Harshad speaking to you.
'With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it's just not acting. It's lying'- Johnny Depp
"I have no idea what I would have been if not an actor because ever since I came into senses I had always wanted to become an actor.
I was very active in sports and had tried my hands in NCC, Discus Throw and a master in lazing around. I loved watching movies and as a child I was really crazy. I used to guess the actors by just listening to songs and the singer. When I think of those things these days I feel really funny, but the interesting part is that most of the time I got it right.
I did my engineering because that was another thing that was there in my father's check –list (laughs), but even after that I knew I was not meant for that.
Actually we are living in an age that is completely different from which our parents had lived in. During those days, education was the only means to be successful in life. But today the generation loves adventure and is more creative and lives the way they like.
I never told my parents I wanted to become an actor because after I finished my studies I just came to Mumbai and started trying for ads and ramps. But survival in Mumbai is the toughest part and when I realized I needed to do something for bread and butter, I thought of trying my hands in Television and luckily I did not have to struggle much to get my first show, Mamta.
But even today I feel that there is a lot to attain from this industry.
To all those people who are aspiring to become actors, the industry is not what you think the way it is. There is a lot more here than just acting and the world here is completely different from what it seems to be. This is a very competitive industry where there is no security and guarantee of your success. Apart from the preparations that are needed for an actor, there is a lot more to do once you come here. Today I wish I had someone to take care of everything so that I just have to act."
Harshad is busy these days learning stuffs he likes the most, like Dancing, Swimming and other similar activities...
