Before he made a mark in Bollywood with Aashiqui 2 (2013), actor Aditya Roy Kapur, 29, had featured in supporting roles in Action Replay (2010) and Guzaarish (2010). Now, after tasting success as a popular lead actor, Aditya says that he never thought he could be the ‘hero’.
“The roles that I played before Aashiqui 2 were not really hero roles. This is because I never imagined myself as a hero. I have not grown up watching Hindi cinema, and my understanding of the industry is very different,” says Aditya.
Although he has now carved a niche for himself, he once had to through days that felt quite gloomy. “There were days when I asked myself if I would ever fit in the industry, or if I had to change myself to do so. It is hard to find your footing in a place like this. I was confused at times and I also doubted myself … if I would be able to carry off the role of a particular character.”
However, Aditya was not one of those who took on every film he was offered. “I didn’t say yes to projects that easily. There were a bunch of roles which I refused to do. However, I learned a lot from that time and met so many different people, so I have no regrets,” he says.
