Shreyas Talpade recalls mother's advice of doing salaried jobs  

In a recent conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Shreyas Talpade recalled his mother’s advice to take up salaried jobs. He mentioned, “Today, you have different avenues of earning revenue. And it is only for this reason that for the longest time, till the day of Iqbal’s release, my mom continuously kept telling me, ‘Why don’t you look for a steady, constant job that will give you a paycheque at the end of every month? Now you are married, how will you feed your wife?’.”

He continued that his mother was certain he would keep up his career in acting after she saw Iqbal. He recalled, “And when she saw the film, she said, ‘Ok, now I guess you are going to be doing only this’. Having said that, there are a lot of uncertainties here. Some people make it, most of them don’t.” However, the Housefull 2 actor continued that as an actor there is always an insecurity about where the next paycheque will come. He confessed feeling self-doubt when films get shelved and there is no guarantee about the next project.
