Paatal Lok actor Abhishek Banerjee says he realized what being famous means only in 2020

After years of hard work in the industry, Abhishek Banerjee seems to have finally struck gold. After delivering a bone-chilling performance in Anushka Sharma’s Paatal Lok, Banerjee has now won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor (Web Series) for his role in Paatal Lok. In a recent interview, the actor said that he still cannot believe that he has won this award. He added saying, “I look at the trophy, more like I steal glances every time I walk past it. I just can’t believe ki sahi mein mere ghar pe ye hain. I am quite humbled because it is a validation of the fact that I am on the right track. You know how it is difficult to impress these days. It is a very different kind of satisfaction.”

 
“Like everyone, I also came to Mumbai to make it big as an actor. I also thought ki kuch karna hain. Then when you don’t get to do roles which you might have wanted to do in your 20s with the filmmakers you like as they usually cast raw actors, I started thinking kuch problem hai. Casting then became the route towards survival,” he added.
 
The actor bagged the prestigious award for his role as the serial killer Hathoda Tyagi in Paatal Lok.
