'Udaariyan' star Ankit Gupta Exclusive Interview: While some people still believe that you can't pursue a career in acting until or unless you have some helping hand in the industry, there are some celebrities who proved that if you have talent and dedication, nothing can stop you. One such celebrity is 'Udaariyan' star Ankit Gupta who proved his existence with his talent and shouted out loud that he is here to stay.
In an exclusive interview with PTC Punjabi, Ankit Gupta said that acting gives him a buzz and that he loves what he does. The 'Udaariyan' star knows how to leave an impact on people and has been doing a great job on screen.
What brought you into acting?
When asked about what brought him into acting, Ankit Gupta said that it was the most fun job that he could ever think of. It has been more than 10 years since Ankit has been playing reel characters on TV screens. He said that "I enjoy when I am on the sets. I just love acting and I love playing different kinds of characters. Acting gives you a chance to explore and I just love doing that."
What is Ankit Gupta looking for?
"Just like other actors, I am looking for much larger canvas. I want to explore more in acting and test my limits. I want to work with good people and try to make some difference in cinema with my contribution to it," he said.
'It's not just Punjabi industry anymore'
"I have been in Punjab for the last few years. It's not just Punjabi industry anymore; it's growing wildly with a huge reach across the world. I would love to explore that," said Ankit Gupta in an exclusive interview with PTC Punjabi.
'OTT providing opportunities'
Furthermore, Ankit Gupta said that "there was a time when it seemed really difficult to enter the Bollywood industry but actors like Sushant Singh Rajput and Kartik Aaryan proved that it's not that difficult. Besides, OTT platforms, nowadays, have provided opportunities for actors like us with no background in acting."
On being asked about his advice to the aspirants who want to pursue a career in acting, Ankit Gupta advised, "Just do whatever you want, prepare for it and work hard. Earlier, people from small cities used to think that those with good looks are only meant for acting but good looks are just an advantage, acting needs much more than that."
He concluded that "patience is the key in the field of acting and one must prepare for the right time; and when right comes, just nail it."
