There is no straight line between TV to Bollywood, it’s a different world altogether. I plan to do so when I will be 26 or 27.
There are a few things which need to take care of like you need to be not seen on television, you need to work on your looks, people need to accept you as a mainstream Indian hero and once that is done, then a good script can make it possible.”; The “Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki” actor who feels that the struggle will always be there suggested that one needs to be content and happy with what they are doing, but they shouldn’t be satisfied.
Avinash Mukherjee on Television to Bollywood:
“Struggle is everywhere even Amitabh Bachchan sir says he is struggling, Shahrukh Khan says that he is still learning. So, every day is a struggle to become better than yesterday. If you ask any human being, he will say that whatever I am doing I don’t like it, I wish I was somewhere else. So that constant discontentment is there, but I think once you are content with what you are doing and keep working where you want to be, you will be happy. Be happy but don’t be satisfied because satisfaction can kill your desire to work harder.”
The actor, who was recently also seen in the web show “Ratri Ke Yatri’, feels it’s important for an actor to be experimental. He said, “It’s very important to be experimental. My recent venture, ‘Ratri Ke Yatri’ on Hungama Play, was an experiment and it turned out well, people have been liking and admiring the story and my performance. It’s so overwhelming. Even in ‘Shakti…’; The looks and characters are very different, and after every episode, I am flooded with calls and messages. People tell me how much they love watching me in it.”
