Amit Sadh has become a popular face in the Bollywood industry.

His acting career started with a popular teen series, Kyu Hota Hai Pyarrr. He said that his transition to films took place when he was ‘banned’ from the television industry. He said that he was blacklisted for being outspoken due to which he moved to Bollywood.

In an interview he said, “I did not leave television to go to the movies. In television, they banned me. They called each other and said, ‘Isko kaam mat do (Don’t give him work).’ Toh phir maine kaha, ‘Achcha? Nahi de rahe ho? Toh phir main picturon mein jaaunga (Then I said, ‘Oh? You won’t give me work here? Then I will do films)’.”

Amit was in his early 20s and like a ‘bull’, ready to fight. He revealed that he got a call from a very big television producer, who told him that he had quite the reputation, even though he was a good actor. “Maine usko bhi bol diya, ‘Sir, galat karoge, ladunga (I told him as well, ‘If you do something wrong, I will fight)’,” he said.

With time he mellowed himself down and within his journey he met some ‘beautiful people’.

Amit made his Bollywood debut with Ram Gopal Varma’s Phoonk 2 in 2010. He has also acted in films like Kai Po Che!, Guddu Rangeela, Sultan, Sarkar 3 and Gold. His most recent release was the web series Breathe: Into The Shadows, which also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Nithya Menen.
