Actor Shivin Narang, who has made a name on TV, is drifting towards OTT and films. While he believes one needs to work hard to reach somewhere, as nothing comes easy, he is quick to add that he’s not someone who would sulk on losing a project.
“In the process of finding work, if I lose out on a project, I do not believe in crying ki mujhe ye nahin mila,” says the actor, who was seen in the recent release Goodbye as Rashmika Mandanna‘s love interest.
Asked if he faced any discrimination auditioning for films and OTT projects, Narang says,
“Auditions are to figure whether you’re fitting a part or not. Even Kareena Kapoor auditioned for her part in Laal Singh Chaddha. So, we as artistes, need to understand that while acting, it’s not about who you are, but if you can be a character or not. If you fit the bill, you get the role. It’s that simple,” he asserts.
However, Narang, who recently released the music video Deewana Deewana, adds that getting projects without auditioning also happens but it takes time to reach that stage.
“That’s when you have worked with someone and they have the belief that you’re the right choice for a certain role, then you don’t need to go through an audition. So, I don’t think such things should be treated as problems. It’s routine in an actor’s life.”.
On being asked about success and fame he says,
“Success is subjective. It is nice to be important but it is more important to be nice” he signs off.
