Suniel Shetty on making it big despite being a bad dancer 

After being away from the limelight for a few years, one of the biggest action stars of the 90s, Suniel recently made his OTT debut with the web show 'Dharavi Bank'. Apart from that, the actor also has some big screen projects in the pipeline. Recently, Suniel completed three decades in the industry and in a conversation with Pinkvilla, he talked about how he managed to stay relevant despite not having any acting training and being a bad dancer. 

The actor stated, "The media has kept me alive, probably because of my fitness and health and those things, but god has been kind.” Suniel then remarked upon his three-decade career in films and said, “Being a bad dancer, still having the best music, (that is) crazy. (I was) Never trained in acting, was somebody who was written off as wooden, that person gets a chance to do 120 films.”

Talking about his show 'Dharavi Bank', Shetty said, "At a time like this when some of the biggest are finding it impossible for the audience to come to the theatres, it would be impossible for someone like me to come and say, ‘You know what, I have messed up with you all this while, gave you all crap, I am going to give you something, give me money.’ It wasn’t going to work.”

When asked about his favourite actors from new generation of Bollywood, Suniel Shetty stated, "Ranbir Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Ranveer Singh. A lot of kids, they have it in them, who are superstars but don’t behave like them. Attitude should come from within. Button khule rakhne se aap macho nahi bante, it depends on how you carry yourself. Shahid (Kapoor), he has maintained himself, he is not 6’2, but he looks larger than life."
