Actor Ashutosh Rana, who was recently seen in the Netflix series Aranyak, recently spoke to the Instagram page Humans of Bombay as he opened about his cinematic journey. Rana shared that he got his first big break due to filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in his television serial Swabhimaan and even though it took him a while to make his mark, he was never disheartened.
“The first few weeks were spent commuting from one corner to another, looking for work. And it was during one of these auditions that I met Mr. Mahesh Bhatt. He offered me a role in ‘Swabhimaan’, a television serial! That was my 1st break! I couldn’t wait to see myself on screen! Papa told me, ‘I know your talent, make the most of this opportunity!’ I tried to live upto my potential & when I saw myself on screen… I still get shivers when I think of that feeling. After Swabhimaan, I got a lot of work! And although I wished to get longer screen time, maine chhote kaam bhi bade man se kiye,” he said.
