He made his Bollywood debut with Ram Gopal Varma’s Mast in 1999, although he is also known as a child actor in blockbusters like Mr. India and ChaalBaaz. He has now talked about the initial hit films of his career, the failure that happened later, and how creators started dropping him off their projects.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, he said: “Between 2000 and 2010, when I was doing maximum work, I worked with great producers, directors, stars and star kids. But when some of my films failed, many started dropping me out of their projects. there was a herd mentality that his movie doesn’t work, so don’t take him. “
He continued, “They didn’t think he was a good guy and a good actor, let’s work with him again. He was also given a hypothetical question: What if he was an asterisk? Here’s what he had to say about this: “Maybe I had more offers, wish I knew someone. But good or bad, I stuck there. As I always say, the audience determines your journey.”
He added, “If it hadn’t been for support from them I wouldn’t have survived. The acceptance is important, the rest is debatable. I am an optimist and would like the glass to be half full. This industry has us has given a lot. and has a lot more to offer. At the same time, such conversations would certainly lead to a better working atmosphere. We can debate certain things, but that should not be done under the guise of personal vendetta. “
Shivdasani has also been part of such films as Kasoor, Awara Paagal Deewana, Masti, Red, De Taali, 1920s Evil Returns, Grand Masti, Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 and Great Grand Masti.
