Pearl V Puri: 'My Ex-Girlfriend Wanted Me To Become An Actor, When I Did, She Wanted Me To Quit It'- EXCLUSIVE
Pearl V Puri has some really popular shows to his credit- right from Phir Bhi Na Maane...Badtmeez Dil, Meri Saasu Maa to Nagaarjuna, Naagin 3 and Bepanha Pyaar. But do you know Pearl had never planned to become an actor. Recently, Pearl had a LIVE session with us on our Instagram page and shared many interesting and unknown facts about him. Read on: 

We heard you are helping 100 spot boys in this crisis?
We are human beings and on humanity grounds we should always help each other. Spot dadas take care of us the whole day on the set- right from serving tea, coffee to cleaning our room. And now in this pandemic when I got a call from one of  them that he has no money to survive, I thought just like him how many else will be there who are suffering and must be shying away to talk or maybe not having my number. So, in my capacity I am trying to help as much as I can. These things are not to talk about but as you all know about this already.

You are also taking care of stray dogs in your area?
Yes, I am feeding stray dogs also regularly because until the lockdown was announced and hotel business were on, they used to give the remaining food to them but as now no one is stepping out, they aren't getting anything to eat. I know there are people like me who are stepping out to help them but that is not enough. So, through you guys, I would like to request my fans who love me to carry a packet of biscuits and feed strays wherever they find them. 

Farah Khan also praised your gesture and even shared the story on her social media platform...
She is a sweetheart. Farah ma'am is so kind that she is doing a lot for people in need and pets as well. Even if you talk to her once on a phone call, you will understand how amazing she is. It's very important to be caring and human. 

Go on...
So, I did an acting course of three months with Anupam Kher sir. One day he asked us to write about 3 best qualities which makes us a good actor?  And I just wrote one quality that you should be a good human being and he was impressed and said you are right. If you are a good human, you will understand all the emotions and will be able to portray every emotion rightly.

You always wanted to be an actor?
My father wanted me to join his business but I wanted to do this as I had a girlfriend who wanted me to become an actor and she was a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan. For her, I left home and came down to Mumbai and became an actor. And after I became an actor, she wanted me to leave acting.

There were a lot of reasons and I don't want to discuss all that now. She is happily married and we are not in touch. But I feel everything happens for good. If I would have not become an actor, I would have not received this kind of love from my fans. I also love them a lot and take all of them as my big family. 

We will be coming with Part 2 of this interesting conversation soon, where the actor talks about his Bollywood debut, love for music and much more. Stay tuned.
