Sanjay Gandhi is well recognized for his critically acclaimed performances in films like Black Friday and No Smoking. Gandhi is also known for her role as Mahendra Pratap Singhania. However, the actor recently revealed that he thinks he has various personal limitations as an actor.
In a recent interview he said, “If someone calls me for a role, I first ask them if I have to dance, fight or drive, because I can't do those things. I accept it. But if you ask me to say a monologue for an hour, I can do that easily. That's my strength. I can say that I am an actor with limitations. I don't think there is anything wrong in accepting things I can't do.”
"I did not have my family's support in the beginning of my career, but my guru Robin Das encouraged me and supported me. Later even my parents had no issues," he added.
He further continued saying, “It was tough to become a good actor then, it still is. You need a good mentor to tell you the difference between a hero and an actor. Once you know the difference and understand the nuances of acting, the struggle becomes easy because you first need to understand what acting is. The struggle in this industry is never-ending, so you need to have patience and keep the passion alive if you want people to know you.”
Sanjay also said, “Anyone who enters the industry wants to be seen in films, but they want meaningful roles, be it on any medium. I did 'Hate Story 3' and 'Black Friday' because the characters were interesting and affected the storyline in away. So there is no such line between TV and films. All a film actor wants is to do significant roles on TV. The same goes for TV actors -- they want to do films but they just don't want to just be a part of it. They want their characters to be important.”
