“Good things come to those who wait”. This actor is perhaps an ambassador somewhat of this very thought, this very belief. Although his good looks make him very noticeable, his talents as an actor have proven to be a little slow to be accepted among the audiences. Whether this was because of the roles he chose to play or simply that the right opportunities didn’t come his way, things have definitely taken a change of the better for the hunky Arjun Rampal.
In a recent interview, Rampal talks about his journey to popularity, “I am more comfortable in what I do. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the best in the business and I’ve learnt a lot from them”. In recent years, Rampal has acted with Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Ajay Devgan and Manoj Bajpai — all of which are experts in their respective genres.
Rampal, who started off his career as a model, has had many dismal times in his acting career. His journey seems to taken an opposite transition with his successes now winning the actor a National Award. Rampal revealed that he focused on not giving up even when the going got tough. He said that he doesn’t work for the critics but that he lives for the audiences. He believes in good cinema for the masses, not the people who seek to scrutinise and criticise every performance or choice of his.
When asked whether things or attitudes had changed since being bestowed the National Award, Rampal goes on to say, “A lot of professional people I worked with always said it would happen…it was the highest point in my career and life”.
The actor also talked about how he knew that the audiences appreciated his performances in characters which he could really get his teeth into. He described his characters as “layered” and having multiple dimensions and said he believed these were the reasons people like them.
The actor’s forthcoming offering include Ra.One, Rascals and Jai Ramji Ki, to name a few. No doubt fans and Bolly critics alike will be watching this actor like hawks and we have every faith that he will deliver performances that will fill people with admiration and praise.
