Varun Mitra is an individual who dared to be different and took chance. Not only did he leave a lucrative commodity export career to pursue his passion of acting but he willingly took the ups and downs in his stride and held his fort on every count.

Here are some valuable insights from Varun Mitra’s session at the Ted Conference –

Two kinds of Varun
“There is Varun who is the shy, safe guy and then there’s Mitra who’s edgy and takes risks. There is a battle going on between the two. The body always has a tendency to go back to what is comfortable”

On his decision to pursue acting
“Tina, my friend, was the voice of every close friend and family member. They all unitedly said one thing, great job, and great money, why risk it? But I did not listen to anybody.”

His first audition
“I walked into Aarmabh Nagar thinking the world is my oyster, I had just quit a high paying job. I had to wait for 3 hours for that audition.”

Mumbai is the city of dreams and the nightmares here come true
“It was just the camera and me alone and all I could think about what was the life I had left behind. Truth is, the last 6 years have been hard. Lots of highs and lots of lows. They say Mumbai is the city of dreams but what they don’t tell you is that the nightmares come true first.”

On chasing dreams
“It’s difficult to chase your dreams because it’s a decision you have to take every single day of your life.”
