I never thought I will last 30 years. I came to Mumbai hoping that I will be able to work for a year or two and do 5-7 films. I always thought I will find a job in the media or do something related to films, even if it was lighting the set up or being a sound assistant. I just love films, so I always thought if I don’t get work as an actor, I will just go back to doing some job in Mumbai on the sets of other people,” he had said.
