The actor credits bearing no ego and accepting change as the reason for his longevity in the industry. The web series, presented by Applause Entertainment, features Sachin as a politician, and the actor says there was no way he could turn down the project. But it can never be senseless. He knows his job, he ensures the script is proper and everything is in place. “There are lots of people who have done nothing else but acting, these are big names, and they’re happy with it. That gave me a lot of job satisfaction. But it’s not meaningless.”
City of Dreams will stream from May 3. Some people may like it, some won’t. Because it never leads you anywhere. I don’t need to scratch my head thinking whether the show is good or bad.”

“I am most comfortable working with a person like Nagesh. He then featured in films like Nadiya Ke Paar, Sholay, Balika Badhu, Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se and Satte Pe Satta. You can like it, or you won’t. You don’t want to be stuck in an era which doesn’t exist. 0
Comment(s) I kept on moving and doing these things together. One has to go through a lot of difficulty and pain but nothing comes easy and no lunch is free. “Entertaining people is not an easy job, though it appears like one. Advertising

Have you seen these photos of Sara Ali Khan, Ranveer Singh and Janhvi Kapoor? Beginning as a child actor, clocking more than 60 appearances in films, he later also turned director, writer and editor. “The one who doesn’t accept the change, the change will never accept him. He switched to direction with his hit TV show Tu Tu Main Main in the ’90s and donned the hat of a writer, editor, singer and choreographer. “Nobody in my family was from the industry, I was destined to be a part of it. For I’ve met my lights, trolleys, cranes, studios and sets more than my relatives. “I was not stagnant. These are my uncle and aunts.”
Sachin, 61, has spent 56 years in performing arts. You have to keep evolving. I feel I must’ve done some good in my past life that God blessed me to be in this industry.”


In an interview with PTI, the actor decodes his journey, citing his ability to adapt and constantly striving to be versatile as the key to remaining relevant as an artiste for more than half a century. I can’t even imagine what that life would be. All of it triggered by an assassination attempt on an influential political figure.
