Pratik Gandhi shares how Scam 1992 changed his perception in the industry 

Hansal Mehta's critically acclaimed web show 'Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story' changed everything for its lead, Pratik Gandhi. The actor, who was previously seen only in minor roles in Hindi films, was now starting to get lucrative film offers. In a recent media interaction, Pratik shared how no filmmaker trusted him enough let him to carry a project on his own before 'Scam 1992'.

According to a recent report in ETimes, Pratik said, "People did approach me, but for supporting characters. Producers and directors here thought that yes I was a good actor, but not a saleable face in Bollywood. So they offered supporting roles saying, ‘your character can cushion the main character and this way people will take notice of you as an actor. Like many other newbies I too thought of taking this route thinking it will help me break into mainstream Bollywood films as a lead hero. After all, beggars can't be choosers!”

However, Pratik is now grateful and excited about what lies ahead of him. In an earlier interview, he had stated, "Today, when I look at the projects lined up, I don’t feel nervous or pressurised. I am only excited. I guess my experience in theatre and Gujarati films, where I worked mainly as the central protagonist, has given me some sort of confidence to sail through.”
