Akshay Oberoi: Failure shouldn’t break his belief and success shouldn’t feel like it made his career

Akshay Oberoi Failure shouldn't break his belief and success shouldn't feel like it made his career

The actor, who has been part of projects like ‘Flesh’ and ‘Gurgaon’, opened up in an exclusive chat with ETimes. Akshay also opened up about nepotism and the kinds of hurdles one faces when one doesn’t have a godfather in the industry.

Opening up, Akshay said, “I was always looking for something different every time.” To do things that the public hasn’t seen in movies. Every time I feel it, I’m scared. It’s when I just need to immerse myself in it because the challenges excite me as an actor.”

One particular scene that made an impression

As Akshay said that there was nothing like him about the character, it was a huge challenge to convey what director Nikhil Rao had in mind. Me and ‘Shiv’ are very different people. “When director Nikhil Rao said ‘I’ve got the shot I was looking for’, I felt great,” commented Akshay on how he believes in counting those little joys as an actor.

Advantages of OTT Platform

The actor also emphasized the importance of OTT platforms as he feels that it gives a chance to publicize stories that have not been seen in films or have not been told in India yet. “People are being cast in their roles. New actors are being cast because they are perfect in their roles. Audiences are fleeing to the web platform.”

Through his character, Akshay shared that he considers drugs a waste of time and energy. “I hope young people understand that consuming these substances is just a waste of time,” when asked what kind of brand you want to create with this web series.

Deal with failure

“My career started with a lot of failures. I got really interesting films, but they didn’t work well.” But one thing, the actor realizes as he shares, “Eventually all films are good and if you keep giving good work, eventually the world will respond.” The “High” actor feels blessed to make a living as he shares how he deals with his setbacks and failures.

Seeing himself as an outsider

Even though Akshay Oberoi is Vivek Oberoi’s cousin, he still considers himself an outsider. Akshay Oberoi also opened up about not having a godfather in the industry.

Watching movies in theaters

Akshay, who is also a film fanatic, said, “It broke my heart when the theater closed. It’s a place where dreams are complete.” The actor has already started going to theaters because they opened in Dubai.

In conclusion, Akshay Oberoi shared that, “Acting is a very tough business, rather anything in the entertainment industry is a tough job. You can’t have a plan B if you want to make it big in this business. Have that tough mentality of ‘yeh nahi, toh kuch nahi’. That’s what I’ve given my life over to.”
