Actor Shashank Vyas became a known face after playing the lead role of Jagya in the show Balika Vadhu and he feels his struggle in the television industry has rewarded him.
“When I came to Mumbai I waited for one and a half year to get my big break and my patience and hard work paid off. All the waiting to get a big break is worth it because it pays you in the longer run,” says Vyas who shifted to Mumbai from Ujjain in 2009.
The actor is returning to the small screen after nine months, with the role of an army officer. During the break that he had taken, Vyas informs that he spent time exploring new places. “I travelled abroad and also in the north of India. I looked after my fitness, made new friends and gave time to myself. Now, the period of rest is over and it’s time to come back on television and start working,” he says.
The actor, who has only one mantra when it comes to achieving his goals, says, “I just follow my dreams. The passion in me to face camera is what gets me going and that is what I can do. When you love your work, it is no more a burden, it becomes fun,” adding, “When you decide to become an actor, you are prepared for a tough journey. So was I.”
