Suniel Shetty: Taking a sabbatical was the best thing I could have done
Since Suniel Shetty first entered the over-the-top (OTT) market, he has been making waves. The actor, who received plaudits for his appearance and performances in dramas like Dharavi Bank and Hunter, believes that the time off from acting was beneficial.
I guess that break was like magic,” he reflected. I used this break to see how other young actors and actresses of my generation fared on screen. I decided to use this downtime to learn to appreciate them and see the bright side of things. Learning occurs when one stops focusing on oneself and begins to see the best in others. Nothing good can come from viewing others solely through a competitive lens and with a bad attitude. Positive thinking, in my opinion, is a great way to learn from the successes of others.
A Gentleman and Welcome to New York featured cameos from Suniel, who was last seen in 2014 in more substantial parts in films like Koyelaanchal, Desi Kattey. He elaborates, “Everything just seemed to work out for me. It happened by accident. Everything seemed to fall into place after I had convinced myself that this was the kind of employment I was looking for. Amazing opportunities are coming my way. Donate any amount; I’ve turned down several opportunities due to lack of funds. Because my thoughts are so organised, my career trajectory appears to be straightforward.
