Mumbai: Actor Randeep Hooda says he is trying to pay attention to the commercial aspect of filmmaking and acting, but at heart he is purely an artiste.
"I have made a promise to myself that I will have no limitations as an actor. I have realised I have to pay attention to the commercials or the business aspect of cinema but deep inside I am purely an artiste," Randeep told IANS.
"I am not here to be part of big films. Of course, money is necessary but inside of me there is a constant struggle of an artiste with himself," he added.
The actor says he has tried to balance commercial and non-commercial projects in his filmography.
"The journey so far has been great for me," said the actor who has been appreciated for his work in movies like `D`, `Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster` and `Jism 2`.
He is currently busy promoting his film `John Day`, in which he features in a dark role.
