Actor Purab Kohli says that the success of his film Rock On! (2008) and the new found stardom after it had misled him.

“I remember that after Rock On released, it was the first time I experienced such huge success for a film. Before that too I had received accolades for my acting, but had never seen success of this magnitude. At that time, I took decisions which weren’t right, since success may have then got to my head. I thought I was bigger than others,” says Kohli, who will now be seen in the sequel to the film.

The actor, who will soon be seen in a television series directed by Nikhil Advani, confesses that he has taken up projects in the past for the heck of it.

“I have been offered projects in the past that belonged to the popular genre. Since everyone was jumping on the bandwagon and were doing well, I’d also done a film for the heck of it. I just jumped on it and the film went down into the drain and disappeared. It was a badly made film,” he remembers.

However, Kohli, who has been part of films such as Bas Ek Pal, (2006) Who Lamhe, (2006) Fatso! (2009) and Jal, (2013) feels that any actor, who goes through a transition in career, faces confusion.

“That happens to every actor who sees success for first time but you learn from your decisions and move on learn from bad decisions you have made. My decisions are based on if am I enjoying the part and where will it go. I don’t think of expectations so far,” he says.
