Ankit Rathi talks about his journey as an outsider in Bollywood

During the interview, Ankit Rathi was asked about his journey as an outsider in the film industry and if there was anyone who strongly backed him till now. Answering this question, Ankit Rathi shared, “No, and no one in my family is from the industry. So I started out with advertisements and all. Whatever I’ve done till now I have auditioned for it including this project. So there is no support as such.” Talking about his journey in Bollywood, Ankit Rathi said, “I never thought in my journey that I need someone. Sometimes I feel when I see an insider getting benefitted through that someone to guide you but I think that I am learning through my own process. So I think I’ve reached till here and I would like it to be it like this way only so that someday when an outsider sees me I can tell this that okay I don’t have anyone but still we all can be there where we want to be. It may take time but you can be there. Mai khud hi MC Sher aur Khud hi Murad hu.”

Ankit Rathi on his initial struggling days

Being an outsider in the industry, Ankit Rathi has had his share of struggle. Talking about his initial days in the Bollywood industry, Ankit Rathi shared, “During the day I used to be an assistant director in a production house and wait for a while so that I can sustain in Mumbai and do something like that. So I was working in an Australian process call centre and I used to audition for advertisements in the morning and used to do this production house work in evenings.” He also recalled a memory where he was in a difficult spot financially. Ankit revealed that he had to sell his laptop in order to sustain for four-five months. However, he had a positive approach towards all this. Ankit mentioned, “But then I thought that no worries, one day it will be better. I don’t think that there is a point of seeing it that way that maine itna struggle kiya hai (I have struggled this much). Whatever I am doing is for myself. Mera keeda tha mujhe ki acting karna hai (I had the inclination towards acting). This is what I have chosen for myself and I was quite happy.”
