Pratik Gandhi on scam 1992: Life has changed a lot

Pratik Gandhi
Pratik Gandhi talks more on scam 1992 and says – “Life has changed a lot. The way people look at me changed. The way they approach me as an actor has changed. So, I guess their perception of me has changed completely and I don’t think I have changed at all. But now I guess they are more confident to mount a project with me. So, I am expecting interesting characters to come my way and I am looking forward to working with experienced directors from who I can learn.”

Pratik Gandhi says on if anything interesting came his way after Scam 1992. Pratik Gandhi says – “So, initially after ‘Scam’ a lot of people told me, with a lot of affection and care for me, that now your next move will decide your career path, you have to be extremely careful with what you do next. Initially, for a few days, even I thought that I should be careful but then I thought what’s the process of selection? There’s no thumb rule. Nobody can tell me what to do and what not to do? Because I think differently and the way I think no one can.”

He adds – “So then I realized that my thought process or my selection is going to be the same and I’ll go with my gut feeling if I like the script and if it’s challenging me enough to create that character.”

Further talking about the OMG moment of his life, Pratik Gandhi spill the beans over it. He says – “First call that I got from was Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi. They took my number from Hansal sir and they called me. And I could not believe that I had just got a call from them.”

He adds – “The way they spoke to me and the way they encouraged me appreciated me, it fuelled me up. Shabana ji said that after ages she was seeing a man on the screen so good. She said that you are here to stay and I am glad that you did something like this. Javed sir told me that after Amitabh Bachchan I am seeing this kind of performance after years. Now that’s such a big compliment. Apart from them, Boney Kapoor also called me. Ranbir Kapoor texted me. It was such a warm welcome that I got into the mainstream.”
