Suniel Shetty: I’ve learnt everything from my failures

Mumbai, Sep 21 (IANS) Actor Suniel Shetty has seen ups and downs in his showbiz career. He says failure has taught him a lot.

“When I started my career as an actor, I had no guidance from anyone. I have learnt everything from my failures. I was very happy when my first movie was successful. That success paired with my trained body allowed me to believe and dream that I would be the next Amitabh Bachchan in the industry. Unfortunately, it remained a distant dream,” said Suniel, who made his Bollywood debut with the 1992 movie “Balwaan”.

“Moreover, I received a lot of criticism from people who told me that I cannot act and should go back to being a hotelier. I am glad that I took their criticism positively, moved past that and focused on what audience wanted me to do,” he added.

“But soon I stood up and decided to do something that could set me apart. I decided to excel in what others didn’t have, I focused on my actions and my fitness. I used to perform stunts that made me stand distinctly among my peers. My experience and my failure, both, have taught me to be a better performer and that is my journey so far,” said the “Border” actor.
