Mumbai: Actor Randeep Hooda, who proved his mettle with `Highway`once again, says whenever he approached people for work it didn`t work.

"Approaching people for work has not worked for me. People who came to me with work has worked," Randeep told reporters during a group interview.

However, Randeep, who started acting with internationally acclaimed film "Monsoon Wedding", has been appreciated for his work in `D`, `Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai`, `Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster` and `Jannat 2`.

He has won appreciation for playing a rustic yet affable villain in Imtiaz Ali directed `Highway`. The 37-year-old considers himself lucky to be part of the road movie in which he is paired with Alia Bhatt.

"I think the film chose me and I am lucky to be part of the film. Imtiaz is a great director. I don`t think you can become a star with one movie because you have to keep churning out good work. But, yes I am certainly lucky to be part of the film," said Randeep.
