Last seen in exhibits like Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai, Excuse Me Madam, Jijaji Chath Par Koi Hai and internet sequence Chattis aur Maina, actor Tushar Rungta says hailing from Uttar Pradesh was by no means an impediment in his profession.
“Initially I had this perception that the industry is not a place for people who hail from small town. But once I reached Mumbai luckily never felt like this at all. Instead, I feel it’s more about being talented and skilled in your craft,” mentioned the actor of digital brief movie Aakhri Panna.
The 21-year-old feels on reaching the town of desires he by no means gave up until he discovered work. “After reaching Mumbai, I was auditioning constantly till I got a break with Bhabhi Ji… followed by more shows. Soon I met known director Saumitra (Singh) sir and then joined him as an assistant. That was a turning point for me as assisting him helped me to understand the craft well, both as an actor and a director. Now, I know well about camera positing, lighting and other technical aspects.”
Tushar is comfortable together with his newest release Chattis aur Maina and feels all his exhausting work is paying off. “I joined a local theatre group in Gorakhpur for a weekly play staged on a small scale. That stint helped me learn a lot in terms of acting. Without paying a penny I trained at Rang Ashram. Today, thankfully after much effort they are about to have its very own auditorium soon. Then, I reached Delhi as I always wanted to train at National School of Drama but since I was not a graduate it was not possible. Instead, I did a year’s diploma from Himachal Drama School,” he mentioned.
The actor was busy with a shoot when the lockdown occurred and got here again to his hometown. “A lot of work is on hold but we have been called back so will be in Mumbai soon,” mentioned the assistant director of brief movies like Painful Pride, Kala Bai from Byculla together with quickly to launched Bang Bang with Sharib Hashmi and Taxi No.24 (large-short movie) with Mahesh Manjrekar.
