Although actor Angad Bedi has films such as Pink and Tiger Zinda Hai to his credit, he is yet to be seen as a prominent solo lead in a film. However, the actor seems to be in no hurry to bag such a project, and is okay with sharing screen with big stars such as Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan.

“With big makers and actors, you get a wider reach and I am okay with that. A lot of actors want to do a solo release, but not many people go and watch it. The more you work with different actors and producers, the more your work reaches people,” says Angad, who will soon share screen space with actor Diljit Dosanjh in Soorma.

Talking about not taking up a project where he gets to play the hero and main lead in the film, Angad adds, “ I feel I have been playing all primary characters. And if your character forms a connect with the audience, it doesn’t matter if you are playing only the main solo lead or a second lead. As long as I am getting acceptance, I would rather take one step at a time and let the audience also accept me. Many actors want to do a hero film but not many people go and watch it.”

Thankful for the role he has done so far on-screen, Angad has no qualms in accepting that he likes to learn a lot from the seniors in his films. “I really felt that I only fed off Mr Bachchan’s energy in Pink and then I fed off Salman bhai’s energy in Tiger Zinda Hai. I have had some great co-actors to work with like Richa Chadha, Taapsee Pannu and Alia Bhatt. I really value these big co-stars because if they are in sync with you, it makes you a better actor,” signs off Angad.
