Actor RajDeep Choudhry, whom we saw playing the lead character of a detective in Disney Hotstar's Jackpot, had made his debut in Bollywood industry with Arbaaz Khan in Jack & Dil in 2018. Now, when the actor is busy with his upcoming feature film, we spoke to him about his journey so far, wherein he also answered if making a mark in this industry without a godfather is possible? Read on;
Tell us about your journey so far?
It’s been a good journey, and a long journey without some hurdles is not really possible. The beauty is how you overcome those hurdles and move on.
You have recently completed a bollywood film shot in London tell us more about it?
This has been my 2nd main stream Indian film shot in London. I absolutely love it. It’s wonderful to be working in these times. This recent film titled Screem got me working with Rajesh Sharma whom I have always admired as an actor. Rohit Bose was such a nice guy to be on set with really cool. It was a wonderful experience really great working with the production and I hope to work with them again soon.
You are settled in London and the film industry is in Mumbai. Is it difficult to go back and forth?
Sometimes yes. I settled in London and it’s a choice I made and every choice in life comes with its own challenges and mine is at times logistics, however I like to think I plan my work and work my plan well.
Is TV in the pipeline?
I have been offered something from India and have had a couple of meetings, so let’s see what happens.
Your short film Jackpot has been released on OTT...
Fantastic. It’s awesome. I love that the story of Jackpot is so current and it has been shot really well.
I am working on a feature film as one of the main characters this summer and I am working on another long short film which is being shot this month.
Is making a mark in Bollywood difficult especially when you have no Godfather in the industry?
Yes, it’s a country with a billion plus population, nothing is easy. We have to be very competitive and be good at what we do. A bit like the present Indian cricket team- we have so much talent that we don’t know at times whom to play.
Tell us about your other projects?
My debut was with Jack and Dil in 2018 from then on I worked on the web series Dangerous which was directed by Bhushan Patel followed by my next feature film Scream. As you know my latest work was Jackpot and I am currently filming for another project which I can’t name at the moment. I have been simultaneously working in British Film industry.
A tabloid recently wrote about you as an actor to watch out for in 2021 how does that feel?
Feels nice at the same time I hope I live up to the expectations!
Will we see you in Hollywood soon?
Who knows fingers crossed!
