The actor shared his story in a 5-min video shared by Film Companion where he can be seen working as a security guard at a building in Malad with a hope that his bank balance rises and he can once again meet directors/producers to get some work.
Savi Sidhu who started his journey with Anurag Kashyap's film said: "Anurag Kashyap mile struggle karte karte toh mujhe Paanch mei liya, unki jo pehli film thi release nahi hui. Uske baad unhone mujhe Black Friday mei liya, one of the main characters that is Commissioner Samra ka role kiya maine then unke sath maine Gulaal bhi kari. Maine Yash Raj, Subhash ji ke sath, Nikhil Advani ke sath Patiala House kari [sic]"
Tha actor did his schooling from Lucknow. And later went to Chandigarh for further studies where someone suggested him to go for modelling. He did that and went back to Lucknow to study Law where he also did theatre.
He said: "My brother got a job in Air India so coming to Mumbai became easier. Fir jaise struggle hoti hai... maine shuri kari producers ko milna. Kaam ki kabhi problem nahi hui. Mujhe hi chhodna pada ki mai nahi kar pa raha hoon. You know... it was like kya mere liye wait kar raha hai... yaha jaise logo ko kaam milta nahi aur mere pas itna kaam hai ki mai kaam nahi kar pa raha. Meri financial problems bhi badh gayi, health problems bhi badh gayi toh kaam khatam ho gaya."
Savi broke down when he shared details about his personal life. He said: "Sabse tough phase wo tha when i lost my wife. Then I lost my father, mother, my in-laws and other family members too. Akela hote hote, alone."
Talking about his current job as a security guard at a Malad's residential building, he sais: "It's a mechanical job. Tough. 12 hours, it's quite tough. Mere pas bus ke paise nahi hain apne director producers ko milne ke aise halat hain. Ja ke film dekhna toh mere liye dream hai abhi. Bohot filme miss kar raha hoon... dekhne ka mann karta hai par meri financial position aisi hai."
The actor concluded by saying: "I am highly influenced by Amit ji and Dharam ji. But people told me that I will have to make my own identity. Isliye fir bhoot utar gaya. Now, I am working as a watchman at a building in Malad with a hope that my bank balance will increase and I am hopeful they will give me a chance. I know they will not say No. I have always received a positive response from them. They are waiting for me, mai aa raha hoon."
