Actor Shakti Arora sums up his experience of working in Indonesia as ‘spectacular’. Be it the fans, his show or just the place, Indonesia surely has left a deep impact on Shakti, who has been having a marvellous time there. Talking about his stay there, the actor says,
“The experience has been amazing, the people are very warm, nice, cordial, they are very loving and caring. So this has become an addiction for me, staying and working here. I can’t get over it. I don’t feel like leaving because of the love that I have received here.”
Fans are a big part of an actor’s life and coming to Indonesia has increased his fan base tremendously, says Shakti.
“My fan following has increased. I feel that an actor is a property…first, you are small and then you slowly become big, that is what happens to actors. And, coming here helped accelerate the process. I am so grateful and overwhelmed by everything here,”
he says, adding,
“Fans are very important in an actor’s life. If you have done a good job, they appreciate you. You get their love.”
Although he has been in Indonesia since a few months now, this doesn’t seem to have become a hindrance to his career in Mumbai. He has been getting a lot of offers from Mumbai, too. He says,
“I am getting a lot of offers even though I am here in Indonesia. Since last 4 months, I am getting a lot of calls for different shows but I am not able to do it because I have a contract here. I am here till October, but after that, I will be in India and I hope that I get good roles then.”
