TV good way to start as actor: Mohit Abrol
New Delhi, June 30 (IANS) TV actor Mohit Abrol admits that like others, he also wants to see himself on the big screen. And he believes that choosing the small screen medium to achieve that big dream is not a bad idea.
The 28-year-old has his eyes set on Bollywood, but he is enjoying exploring himself on the small screen by featuring in shows like “MTV Fanaah”, “Razia Sultan”, “Swaragini” and now “Gangaa”.
“Growth of an actor happens only by taking up different roles, projects and exploring yourself. TV is huge. It’s the biggest platform that an actor can get. Movies are there, but there are hardly 14 to 15 directors and producers in the industry who make good movies. Otherwise, we have all those C-grade movies,” Mohit told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
“TV shows have larger audience whereas people only watch good movies. Rest of the movies that are made, don’t get screened. That’s why it is important to work with good directors. Otherwise, there are so many films in India that come and no one notices them. But TV gives you that platform. It’s a very good start for an actor,” he added.
So, he wants to gradually move from the small to the big screen.
“Everyone wants to see himself or herself on the big screen. The characters and the experience are larger than life. That’s what I am here for… eventually. TV is the starting point,” said the actor, who wants to work with filmmakers like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Anurag Kashyap and Vishal Bhardwaj.
