Arun Kushwah, also known as Chote Miyan, has become a huge Internet star. He has also recently been seen in movies like Luka Chuppi, Chopsticks. Talking about the days while struggling as an actor, he says, "Each person has his own set of struggles. And in my journey, the only struggling part was to face criticism because of my height. People used to mock me but it never affected me as a person. It rather drove me to getting more accomplishments and success. Turning my failure into success is in my hands but I can't change the perception of narrow minded people. I can only ignore it and I was well versed with it."
Ask him what is the response to the people who used to troll him and he replies, "I am not angry at them who trolled me in my earlier days, but I would like to convey to them that please give your children the real fact check- Tell them koi bhi "Lamba-Chota, Kala-Gora, nahi hota!" You have to accept people as they are rather than criticizing their characteristics.. You never know when a small comment on someone characteristic can turn a normal state of being into a depressing one", he shares.
On being asked how he keeps himself motivated despite all these odds, he says, "Listening to music and watching cosmos was the solution for me. I often imagine life or things beyond this universe or what is beyond dark matter. All these things keep me busy and broaden my mind and make me think that my problems are so small. I have learnt one thing that everything is temporary, so live life as it comes."
