For actor Gulshan Grover making a career in Bollywood was not a walk in the park but he was determined to make a career for himself when he left Delhi for Mumbai in 1974. “I left Delhi University and the city to be a star and I am not letting that be compromised in any sense. I did not leave my parents here crying and emotional to just earn basic bread and butter. I went there to be a star. If I needed to earn just my rozi roti, I would have stayed back in Delhi and got a great job in the field of commerce,” says Grover, who is an alumnus of Sri Ram College of Commerce.
“I will not allow anything to dilute what I had set out to be. I am not going to work in a TV series or web series just to get some money. I too had to learn everything on the job and go through my share of struggles but now I will not let anything change what I have achieved,” adds the actor, who has been part of hit films such as Sadma (1983), Ram Lakhan (1989), Dilwale (1994) and Hera Pheri (2000). He made his first onscreen appearance in the iconic television show Hum Paanch.

“I am one of those who enjoy at work. I don’t know what relaxation is. I would be very unhappy leaving my work. So, what problem do I need to have in working? I hate people who choose a profession and then crib about it,” says the actor who will soon be seen in a web film.
