So, because as you know, my journey was, I wanted to be an MBA post-grad, I'm suddenly 15 movies down in three years.
So, this was pretty difficult thing for me to digest.
This kind of introspection happened when I got Chashme Baddoor, my first Hindi movie.
And luckily, again, I was just sitting and I got that offer.
I didn't really go for any auditions.
Thank god, otherwise, I wouldn't have tried to trust me.
I'm telling you this one truth that I haven't told media, I have never passed any audition of mine till date.
I haven't. I haven't.
So, well, I mean good or bad, it has always worked in our favour because the kind of movies that have rejected me, I don't think I want to name them.
I don't think you want to see them or you've even seen them.
So, let just it be.
So, yeah. So, after three years, I realized it because I did this indie movie and I thought, okay, now the whole country knows me.
Now I can't really take a step back.
It's no more just South.
So, then I sat down and thought, okay, now let me just change the whole strategy.
Let me try to plan something.
So, the planning was just to take it slow, just to do the kind of stuff that I really am enjoying.
A lot of times, you know, people guide you when you don't come from a movie background.
People guide you, oh no, you need to be rolling in the market.
So, you need to keep doing four or five movies at a time.
You need to keep churning out movies where actresses' life span is really less and really short.
So, you need to keep doing movies continuously.
I mean, all these things I kept on hearing and kept on saying yes to movies, which I should not have.
And I'm sure all of us do that.
It was, one thing was for sure, I never did it for money because I remember my dad when I was leaving to work in this industry, he told me that never ever think that you need to earn money.
That's why you are going for this industry.
Do it till the time you enjoy, then come back.
We always have something else ready for you to go ahead with.
And I'm sure. I mean, even I was confident I could have done anything else.
Why here only for earning money?
So yes, I slowed down my pace of doing movies and I selected a few ones.
Things turned out like really good for me because last two years, whichever movie I've done, be it a guest appearance role, started becoming a huge hit in all the three languages.
So, that I thought now, you know, something that has started really working on in my favour.
Let's just keep it going.
Side by side, since I have lot of time in my hand, let's start up something new, something which is going to be with me beyond this acting career.
So, yes, so as I said, I had some time in between my acting after I slowed down my pace of doing movies, is when I thought I need to come up with something,
which is totally disconnected from my acting career, which I will continue once I'm done with my acting.
