Gulshan Grover reveals his rivals tried to ruin his career by paying film producers: I am not a reject hero – Times of India
He recalled the time when a producer offered him a lead role in his film on a condition that he would not do a negative role until this film was done. He said that it was a ploy by his rivals in the industry who collectively funded the producer to do so.
“I did not have one rival, I had many, and they had given the money to the producer for the film. But before that offer, I had rejected a lot of films offering me the role of the hero,” Gulshan said.
The actor further said that he made a conscious decision to avoid protagonist roles and also gave an example of a film starring Kamal Haasan, Padmini Kolhapure etc where he was offered Hassan’s role.
“I am not a reject hero, I am villain out of choice. I want to be able to act my entire life and I have to chose the roles which I will get my entire life irrespective of my age, my look and my persona. And also which are difficult and challenging,” he added.
Gulshan will be next seen in Kamal Haasan’s upcoming film Indian 2.
