Yesterday, Tushhar Kapoor celebrated his debut film turning 20 years old. Tusshar made his debut opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan in 2001 with Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai. In an interview with a leading daily, the actor has revealed some unusual advice that he received as a newcomer in the industry. “At the beginning of my career, I was this quiet type. People would give me crazy advice – jhagda karlo parties mein (get into a fight at parties), xyz type ke scene mein Shah Rukh Khan ke jaise emote karo (emote like Shah Rukh Khan in the xyz scene) and so on. It was really funny. It was also scary because I came from a film family and was told all this. It was hard to imagine what people who came from non-film families went through,” he said.
“Times have changed but in those days, there were these people doling out free gyaan (advice) from all corners; you’d easily find them twiddling thumbs at production offices and sets. You’d almost start second-guessing everything you did. Gradually, I figured that if a film is good and one has been sincere, nothing can mess with your mind,” he added.
