Actor Aftab Shivdasani, who made a promising debut at the age of 19 with the film Mast, is yet to taste resounding success in his career. He says he does not blame anyone for his choice of films.

“My journey has had a lot of ups and downs. I have received accolades, criticisms. I don’t blame anyone for my failure. I take responsibility for my career decisions. This industry works like that, there are risks. Having said that, I am grateful to God for everything that has come my way so far,” Aftab said.

After Mast, he went on to star in films like Kasoor, Kya Yahi Pyar Hai, Awara Paagal Deewana, Hungama, Footpath, Masti, Koi Aap Sa. Aftab went low key for two years by not taking up many film assignments. When asked if it was a conscious decision to stay away from the big screen, the actor said, “I did not decide to stay away from films. I was not happy with the kind of offers that were coming my way. I waited for two years to get the right kind of role. I want to work with big filmmakers. I don’t want to do 10 films a year. In the mean time, I got the opportunity to work on myself,” he added.

The actor was last seen in Bin Bulaye Baraati and is ready for the release of his next film, 1920: Evil Returns.
