Ronit Roy has come a long way in his career, and over the years, has worked in numerous television shows and many films. His roles as Mr Bajaj and Mihir Virani on television shows Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi respectively, remain unforgettable. He recently starred in Hotstar series Hostages 2 and the web series has garnered a lot of appreciation and positive reviews from viewers. However, his journey has not been easy, and he has faced his own share of struggles. In a recent interview, Ronit Roy said he was once told that casting junior artistes would be better than casting him. He also recalled the time working as Aamir Khan’s bodyguard and all that he learnt from him.
While speaking to Pinkvilla, Ronit Roy said that he was once told junior artistes are better than him and while it was hurtful, that only drive him to work harder on himself. He also revealed that the same person who rejected him once, offered him a film two years ago. “My manager was once told that ‘why should we cast Ronit Roy?’ Junior artistes are better than him. I had not understood then. Today, I understand what he meant and it was very hurtful but that man did me a favour. Two years back, that same man offered me a film and I did not do it because it was a bad film. He woke me from a slumber and made me work harder on myself.”
Speaking about the time when he worked as Aamir Khan’s bodyguard for two years, he said that he started his company because he had no work. “I was fortunate to spend time with Aamir and learnt what is diligence and drive for work. In many ways, Aamir started the ball rolling for me. He opened those windows for me and then I stopped caring about big cars and apartments. I then wanted to learn my craft,” said Ronit Roy.
While the viewers have been appreciating Hostages season 2, the web series starring Ronit Roy was also praised by John Abraham. Read more about it here.
