A dry spell in career is grueling and not a walk in the park. Actor Harsh Rajput had no work at this stage before venturing into his hit supernatural drama sight Which lasted about two years. While his savings and small business took care of him financially, it was the frustration of not having any work that was flagging.
“The hardest period (in my life) was before sight, It was a full year and a half where I had no work and I really had no work. I was trying, and I tried everything; Every role, big or small, every genre. I auditioned for everything. But nothing was working. I could not understand where I am going wrong. That was one of the most difficult periods of my life. I was not getting work, and I was ready for any job that I would get. But I couldn’t find any. It was tough physically, mentally and emotionally,” recalls the 34-year-old.
Rajput admits that this phase took a toll on his mental health, however, it was his family that inspired and supported him. “Actors are very emotional people. Even the smallest things bother. And nothing was working for me at that time. That was the last level I reached, wouldn’t go it (that I knew),’ he mentions.
Talking about his personal life, Rajput shows signs of being in a relationship. Ask him if there’s someone special in his life and he says, “I don’t want to talk about it (right now), maybe I’ll reveal it when the time is right.” However, he confessed that he wanted to get married. “I’m old school and I believe in it (marriage). I want to get married one day,” says Rajput, adding that his parents are quite “modern” and they don’t inspire him to get married.
