Ask Gautam Gulati if he thinks it could be his ideal debut and the actor says, “People will get to a glimpse of me in this movie. Eventually they'll see me in a main lead also for sure. But I feel there should be a hero inside you to play anything, an actor inside you to play any character. I believe in and have worked on that.
It's not only about 'Bigg Boss'. I worked for 7 years in TV industry but people are not aware of it. I did 2 international movies as well and even went to the Cannes for a movie where I played the lead. I worked really hard which is why I feel I should now put this hard work in films. It will take time, but happen for sure. This is my first step and I had to take it to reach on the second, third or fourth. I don't believe in doing the main lead only. I must have said no to more than 35 films only because I wanted to do a film with a good banner, renowned people so that people notice me in a film. If I'm the lead in a movie that doesn't release properly, then my fans will only be disappointed because it will be a compromise on quality.”
His fans would second that, and also it is a known fact that Gautam Gulati has been signed with Balaji Telefilms for a 3 film deal.
If one remembers, Gautam even started his TV career under Ekta Kapoor. So can we call her his godmother?
Gautam says, “She's the one who got me here. I have given the positioning to myself but she was the one to introduce me. If not at that time, then I might have come after 3 years. I might have not done TV and now bagged this film. So you can call her that. I'm in this industry because of her today.”
Apart from her dramatic (or maybe overly-dramatic) TV serials, Ekta Kapoor has also become known for producing adult comedies (KYAA KOOL HAI HUM series). But will Gautam also go for an adult comedy?
“If I get a good script, then maybe. But I'm not open for that currently. So let's see,” signs off the actor.
