When I started theatre, I loved comic roles but after the character of Laali in Yaar Jigree Kasooti Degree I like to play challenging roles, so we can say that I am versatile now.
Yaar Jigree Kasooti Degree, it gave me everything.
They are unlimited but I want to work so hard, step by step I want to act in Bollywood then in Hollywood. I don’t want to stop, as I want to stay in this field so I want to make an effort to work with legendary actors like Ammy Virk, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi and Irrfan (but unfortunately he is not alive). Still, I think that I am achieving what I dream as I did my debut with Ammy Virk recently.
Zindagi Zindabad which was about to release before. But due to Coronavirus, the date extended and Qismat 2.
I acted once in my school and enjoyed it but never thought to carry it forward. I realized it when I was doing my masters. I won many prizes at the national level. Also, the character of Laali taught me so much and made me realize that I have to learn so much to reach the top level. In fact, I thought that in Season 1 of YJKD I can’t act well in the first five episodes. So yes I realize it late but ‘Better Late Than Never’.
Then Punjabi teacher (laughs)
Still waiting for that kind of moment. LOL. There are many weird moments but I don’t remember any embarrassing moments.
Best: Four years ago I went to Jammu. There I saw one jacket which I like the most but one of my friends confused me and I dropped that jacket but when I came home I regretted it so much and thought if I saw it somewhere I would definitely buy it. And a few days back I saw the same jacket and I bought it. I think that is best I remember.
Worst: A few years back I ordered some clothes online. It was worthless, I can’t even return it. I still recognize the shirt was so loose that three people could fit in it and the pants were so short that a baby could wear it. So I gave it to my Mess wale Bhaiya. I don’t trust online shopping.
I always carry my phone everywhere
I don’t know what to say but ‘Ghar Ka Khana‘, I just love it. I was in a shoot and was bored with the food which was being served, so I called my friend and asked him to bring a meal from home. I think that is the healthiest and delicious food. Other than this I always depend too much on peanuts and some dry fruits.
During Lockdown I made a Rogan Josh, I saw the recipe from YouTube and I followed every step but in the end it wasn’t looking good. Also, one day I cooked black pepper chicken and my dad didn’t like it. I remember both the times my dad scolded me. (laughs)
I will be shocked at how a hacker can hack another hacker’s account and obviously sad. Because it’s very difficult to regain the trust of people.
I am really grateful to the whole team and specially director Rabby Tiwana to see something and thought that I can fit in this character. Before YJKD I was doing small roles but after being Laali, people know me, it was the turning point in my life. It gave a push to my talent. Moreover, the cool thing is people don’t call me by my name Amrit but call me as Laali. I feel proud during that time.
Yes, sometimes. It’s really nice that I work with my Ustaad Sukhee Patran Sir. If I need some advice I ask from him. I love working under his guidance. But there was one scene in YJKD. I was acting against him and was saying some bad things. He reacted very emotionally to that situation and we both actually cried during that scene.
While shooting YJKD, I never felt it because everyone was working as a family and we know each other so it was not like we were shooting something, it was that we were normally chatting. But when I shot other movies, initially I failed to deliver my best performance and was a bit nervous but after knowing the team, and started understanding the character I managed to be comfortable on sets.
They are innumerable. If I say craziest then I still recall one moment, I was giving my exam and using chits, my teacher saw me and caught me red-handed. He then snatch the answer sheet and didn’t gave it back after the exam he collected all the sheets and going from stairs. I remember (laughs) I hold his leg and asked him to return my sheet so that I could complete my exam. He was not giving it back but when I was not leaving his leg unfortunately he has to. So yeah it was kooky moment. Also I was scolded many times.
Too Sensitive to handle the emotional situation, funny and a person who does someone’s heart good.
By talking to my friend Kamal and Pawan or my sister. And if there is something which I can’t tell anyone then I go for a walk and give some time to refresh my mind.
Everything is the same mostly like helping nature, same guilt and sadness, spread smile. But like Laali, I am not a drug addict.
Lastly, I want to say people need not worry about life, follow your passion, do something which makes you happy. Work hard, only success will follow you.
