Hansal Mehta's Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta series which is currently streaming on Sony Liv has turned out to be a successful venture. From the gripping plot to Pratik Gandhi who played the titular role in the series have received a lot of appreciation from the critics as well as from the moviegoers. However, one must be thinking that Pratik has clocked in success overnight but the truth is that he was here for the past 15-16 years. In an interview, he said that things are changing now as the makers are now considering him for the lead roles in mainstream Bollywood films and web-shows.
"Many people, who have seen me for the first time, might think I became a star overnight. But truth is, I have been around for 15 to 16 years," Mid-Day quoted Gandhi. "The biggest difference is that now, makers have started considering me for the lead role in mainstream Bollywood films and web shows. I have received calls where directors said, 'I had written the script with someone else in mind, but after watching this show, I think nobody will suit the role better than you.'" He further recalled, "Hansal sir is an actor's director. He only kept saying, 'Follow your gut. If you feel you have given your best shot, I am game.'"
He even said that he was a full-time employee at a corporate from 2008 to 2016 and did not view theatre as [his primary] source of income. It was only after Wrong Side Raju won the National Award that made him quit his job and become a full-time actor.
