In an interview with a journal, Bollywood actor Harshvardhan Rane talked about taking odd jobs due to a financial crisis.
"Between 2002 to 2004, I also worked as a waiter, courier boy, at an STD booth, cyber cafe, and even assisted a DJ when I didn't have money. At that time people would say it's important to learn English. It then became my goal to learn the language. I looked around for coaching classes, but I didn't have money to pay for them. So, I joined a call center. At call centers, they used to give training in soft skills and English;” Rane shared.
Harshvardhan added, "To reach the level of call center English, I used to listen to the radio or CNN UK or CNN America. After five-six months, I cracked an interview. I jumped call centers to get the training and learn English for free, and got paid for it too! Back then, English was of utmost importance.
The actor went on to say that Hindi is also getting attention these days. Rane thanked Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan for this. "Thankfully, things have now changed. Hindi is also getting the respect that it deserves because of actors like Amitabh Bachchan;” Rane concluded.
Earlier in May, Rane hit the headlines for selling his favorite motorcycle in exchange for oxygen concentrators. Fans praised Harshvardhan Rane for his selfless act.
Harshvardhan Rane is well known for his roles in films like Sanam Teri Kasam and Trish, as well as the renowned TV series Left Right Left. Rane recently gave an impressive performance in the film Haseen Dillruba also starring Taapsee Pannu and Vikrant Massey.
