Within a short period, he has created a niche for himself with his performances on the silver screen in films like ‘M S Dhoni The Untold story’.
Ashrut Jain , who will be next seen in Shree Nayan Singh’s ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ which also features Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor, is seen as one of the most versatile actors that Bollywood has produced.
Talking to UNI, Ashrut said he is blessed to be working with director Shree narayan Singh and actors Shahid kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
‘I am blessed to be working with them. Their energy is so positive that it grows on you and enhances your performance organically,’ Ashrut said.
Telling about his role in ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’, Ashrut said the filming is on, so he cannot reveal much about it.
“It’s a part I always wanted to do,” he added.
When asked if he is content with his performances and how does he see his success, Ashrut said,’I am a hungry performer. I am very greedy as for me performing is like getting connected to God
It’s a form of meditation for me. If I connect with god, then I get content. For me success is pure satisfaction from my work and reach of my work. That’s it.’
When asked how does he see his career graph right now, Ashrut said,’It took lot of sacrifices and hard work for me, but my phone doesn’t stop buzzing now. I know I have proved my work and for every film and advertisement, I am among the top contenders, rest is pure luck.”
Asked what makes him say yes to a script, the actor said,’Have u seen ‘Avengers: Infinity War? I know the hulk was often not able to come out to fight. That’s what happens to me when I get a non-motivating script.’
“Any script which wakes up the hulk, in me I say yes to it,” he said.
Asked if he thinks the essence of theatre is getting lost these days, Ashrut, who comes from a theatre background, said,’Not at all. Theatre is base of this craft called acting.
All that I know today is derived from theatre. I want every one who wants to be an actor, to please go and join a theatre group for atleast a year. Best of the talents of this country come from theatre background.’
Telling about the filmmakers on his wishlist, Ashrut said,’anyone who has a brilliant script ready and believes in my craft is on my wish list.’
Ashrut also said that he wants to work with Amitabh Bachchan.
