Rohit Roy recently opened up about his journey in the film industry so far. The actor confessed that excessive praise and comparison to Shah Rukh Khan made him overconfident after he shot to fame with his TV show ‘Swabhimaan’.
Talking to Navbharat Times, Rohit reportedly said that his character in the show became quite popular and that went into his head. The actor admitted that he did nothing to polish his skills as an actor and became arrogant.
Elaborating further, he also added that excessive praise like the comparison to Shah Rukh Khan made him overconfident. People told him that he had the potential to overthrow Shah Rukh Khan. However, he also added that we all know where SRK has reached in his career and life and he is still struggling.
Rohit also went on to say that even though he did not come close to where Shah Rukh Khan is today, he is happy in his own space because people still remember and recognise him. The actor added that today he advises new actors to not let the fame get into their head, but instead focus on honing their skills and talent.
Rohit Roy has films like, ‘Kaabil’, Shootout At Lokhandwala’, ‘Paltan’, ‘Fashion’ and others to his credit.
