Mrunal Jain has been missing from TV for two and a half years and now he is back with a bang with Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi.
Mrunal says, “It’s a big break for me. I wanted to do Bollywood and my personality finally worked in my favor. I was not missing intentionally. It is just that I didn’t get the kind of work I wanted to do.”
Speaking about the role he says, “I am playing the antagonist in Sooryavanshi. It is fantastic to work with Rohit Shetty. To work in a film which has Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar surely matters. I also played the antagonist in my last show (Nagarjuna — Ek Yoddha). I want to strike a balance between TV and films.”
The actor adds that he wasn’t very keen on doing the cameo roles on TV that he was offered. “After hearing a few narrations, I felt that the cameos had nothing much to contribute to the story line. I followed my instinct. There was nothing like I wanted to avoid cameos or something but again I didn’t get the right roles,” he says.
The actor says that his looks have always worked for him on TV. “I don’t have chocolate boy looks but I have those unconventional looks where I can play positive and a negative role as well. That unpredictability is always there in my profile, as an actor when I am on screen. So, that unpredictability makes me fit into positive and negative roles,” he says.
On six pack abs he says, “It’s my strength and I have put in a lot of hard work in building my body and I am proud of it as I am a vegetarian and yet managed to achieve the desired personality. I have the talent and now I have got the right opportunity in terms of films.”
Way to go, Mrunal.
