Actor Saqib Saleem is not the one to get bogged down by a bad review. In fact, the actor says that he doesn’t get affected if people don’t like his film and understands that this is part of his work. “I don’t think too much about criticism. I understood very early in my career that this profession is very subjective. There will always be someone who likes your work and someone who doesn’t. This is why I don’t give it too much importance,” he says.
However, Saqib, who has been seen in films such as Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge (2011), Mere Dad Ki Maruti (2013) and Bombay Talkies (2013), says that he has been lucky in his career so far. “I have been fortunate to not experience much criticism in my career so far. But even if in the future, there are occasions when people don’t appreciate my work, I will not let it get to me for sure,” he says.
The actor, whose sister Huma Qureshi is also a part of the film industry, says that though he takes feedback from his sister, he is his biggest critic. “I am very critical about my work and look at it closely. I want to keep on improving with every new project of mine. I want to go on taking on more challenging roles which will help me get better at my craft,” he says. Saqib was recently seen in a short film called Koi Dekh Lega, and says that he took it up because he believed in the script. “This film makes you live in the moment, something that I believe in and I loved the concept,” he says.
