Global exposure has made Gulshan Grover more confident
Mumbai: Actor Gulshan Grover, who has featured in over 400 films so far, says that exposure to international cinema has helped him hone his skills.
"I believe that the kind of maturity, hunger, knowledge of performance-driven roles, understanding of cinema due to exposure to Hollywood and international cinema that I have got today has made me a far more better and a confident actor," the 56-year-old said here Thursday on the sets of his forthcoming film ‘Ban Gayi Baat’.
After spending over three decades in the industry, he feels there are still so many kind of roles left for him to do.
"Not one, there are about 5,000 roles left that I want to do. There are roles that have been done by my fellow actors and I want to re-do them.
"There are roles that have been done by actors in Hollywood, that I want to do. There is so much to do. I have done more than 400 films but I don`t think I have done much, it is just a number," he added.
Now Gulshan chooses roles that interest him.
"I am at such a stage in my career where if the film is not interesting or I think that I cannot watch it, I don`t become a part of that film. I don`t even need to ... thanks to the audience, I am doing great," he added.
Last year he won the award for best actor international at the New York City Film Festival, for his performance as Indian holy man Dada Bhagwan in ‘Desperate Endeavours’. He also won the best actor award for the same role at the Houston Film Festival.
Back home, Gulshan was seen in the critically acclaimed ‘I am Kalam’ which earned him a best supporting actor nomination for the National Awards.
