As a tradition Bhatt camp is set introduce yet another fresh face in the market. Yes, Gaurav Arora, model-turned-actor is making his debut with upcoming film LOVE GAMES co-starring Patralekha and Tara Alisha Berry. But very few know that the musical blockbuster AASHIQUI 2 could have been Gaurav Arora's first film as the lad was about to bag it.
When asked how he became a part of LOVE GAMES, Gaurav revealed, “I actually auditioned long back for the film AASHIQUI 2 and I was quite close to getting it. But that didn't happen. After that they knew me. So they called me for LOVE GAMES. I just met Vikram sir and LOVE GAMES was decided in 5 minutes. And after that on the fourth day of the shoot of LOVE GAMES, he had offered me RAAZ 4.”
But does it bother him of losing a film like AASHIQUI 2, which could have taken him to dizzying heights?
“Not really,” Gaurav responds and adds, “It wasn't that one film that I was trying for. I was auditioning for lot other films at that time and I was also meeting many people at that time. But that's the part and parcel of this industry. I don't think you get it so easily here…Not everyone and anyone could have pulled it off. But I am happy with what's happening right now in my life.”
Probe Gaurav, despite Bollywood being a tough nut to crack Bhatt camp is easily accessible for newcomers, and he says, “From the time I came to Mumbai, I was looking forward to an opportunity but couldn't make it anywhere. They (Bhatts) have heart to launch the people who come from nowhere, who don't have any type of filmy background or support at all. They have balls to launch newcomers without even second thoughts.”
LOVE GAMES is set to release on April 8, 2016
