Bollywood has evolved over the decades into an industry which is more demanding. Critics are waiting for an opportunity to write you off and the continuous emergence of new talent means establishing yourself has never been more difficult. So, how does a Bollywood newbie view this challenge?
“As a newcomer, I have to do what I"m here to do. Put in good performances onscreen as the audience needs to accept and appreciate you first. Critics are always difficult to please. So stick to believing in yourself," says Sachiin Joshi.
“There"s no doubt that Bollywood has changed a lot. The influence of the West is also quite profound in a lot of our movies. We look to spend a lot more on special effects and the overall packaging of the film. Consider Aazaan, we spent a bomb on choreography and locations. But in the end it was worth it," he continues.
With a few films already lined up for 2012, we ask Sachiin if Hollywood ever crosses his mind. “Well Bollywood is being recognized on a global level and that"s great to see. So, why not? Maybe one day I"ll be seen opposite Milla Jovovich," he cheekily adds. If you didn"t know, Sachiin is a huge fan of the Resident Evil star. For the time being, Sachiin is enjoying Bollywood but you can never tell what the future holds.
