Actor Abhilash Chaudhary believes in letting his work do the talking and feels it’s important to constantly better his craft to sustain in the long run.
“See, the industry is a difficult place to make a mark and survive. As it takes no time to forget people and move on, there is a cut throat competition around. I had this in mind ke kaam achha karo, baki baad mei… Public appearances, social media, all this is worthwhile if you have a good career graph behind you. At the end of the day, kaam bolta hai, so that’s what I have been doing and now after eight years of hard work and playing a range of characters, it’s the right time to be in public eyes too,” says the State of Siege-Temple Attack, Zoya Factor and Commando- 3 actor.
Having played a number of serious characters, Chaudhary says he holds nothing against lighter roles. He adds, “Light hearted films are an unexplored territory for now and surely soon I would like to try a fun role too. My friends always ask gaane wali film kab karoge…(laughs) But for now, I strongly feel that a lot of good work is happening that is helping me to take my career up. So, why think changing genres; as of now mere liye kaam zaroori hai and that thankfully I am doing.”
Hailing from Shamli in UP, Chaudhary loves being referred to as a farmer first. “I am a farmer’s son. And surely visit my village and take up work in the field as well as home. I cherish my stay there always as both my parents and childhood friends all are there. During pandemic, as my father was seriously unwell, I had to travel to Shamli more frequently, but now things are better,” says D Company and Special OPS 1 fame actor.
Currently, Chaudhary is busy with multiple projects, including web and films. “First to release will be RGV’s Dhahanam where I play a negative lead followed by a Telugu film Konda, another one with Abhishek Bachchan as well as one more OTT show. So, these will keep me happily busy for now till I find pedo ke iird gird gaane wala role…(laughs)”.
