Actor Jaideep Ahlawat enters the scene with the lead role in Amazon’s Patel Lok; He is the definition of 15 years of overnight success. However the actor did not sign some roles immediately after the success of Patal Lok.
When the Hindustan Times appeared on Digital Conflave for NxT, Next-Gen leaders and newsmakers, he talked about choosing his future projects carefully, and why not sign everything that came after his new status in the face of becoming a bank.
He said in Hindi, “Patel Lok was released when we were in lockdown and since then we have not had much choice to start shooting a new show or movie. I resumed shooting in December last year and moved into another lockdown in March. We have just started working again. Surely, when you offer good, people’s expectations of you increase. Your expectations from you will grow. It’s not about choosing, it’s about being responsible in the subjects I undertake. ”
He continued, “Now I have a chance to decide what is the best story you can do justice to, or you can experiment. But I didn’t choose, we didn’t have a chance to shoot anything. Everyone is at home. We only shot for four months, and what was offered to me at the time was not what I liked. It was the same before. But now I have a better understanding of the decisions I make. I am more responsible now. So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange.
Jaideep said no one could have imagined how a particular project would turn out, and provided an example of Patel Lok, who knew it would be good, but had no idea it would become ‘Talk of the Town’.
