Abhay became an overnight sensation with his character Mandal in a popular comedy web series. The actor however reveals that after his comical role in the series became a success, he was getting offered similar characters. “I used to get fed up of being typecast. I would always get comic roles to play. But I realized that this is not what I want to do. I am completely okay not doing work, bettering myself and waiting for the right opportunities,” he says.
The actor further talks about the unpredictability of work in the entertainment industry and maintains that he doesn’t get bothered by it. I feel like being an actor is a part of my life. If sometimes I don’t get work, I can create work for myself. I have put in work to become a better actor. I know am not going to be on the streets and can earn enough money.”
