There are times when actors don’t have the best experiences during a shoot. Earlier we saw how Rubina Dilaik and Nia Sharma had competed for their dues. Now Balika Vadhu actor Ankit Gupta is candid about how the director would not treat him right. Scroll below for all the details!
For the inexperienced, Ankit played a cameo in Balika Vadhu led by Pratyusha Banerjee. The actor was just starting out and didn’t know much about acting. It only got worse for him as he was ignored and mistreated on sets.
Ankit Gupta told TOI: “I had to deal with a lot of rejections. A lot of people don’t know about this, but my first show was Balika Vadhu, I played a cameo role and at that time I didn’t know anything about acting. I was treated badly there. My director would never take my shot only the assistants would shoot they would call me early in the morning and let me sit all day and probably i would shoot a scene in the evening my director would always be annoyed with me and i understand now. But at the time I didn’t understand why they behaved like that with me.”
Ankit Gupta also told how he didn’t understand anything then, but he does now. “Now I realize I knew nothing about acting. Kuch hota he nahi tha uss time mujhse. When I quit Balika Vadhu, I told myself I would work hard and become a good actor. I started working on myself and after a year and a half I got Sadda Haq and then things changed,” he added.
Currently, Ankit Gupta is enjoying success with Udaariyaan and has certainly come a long way!
