Pratik Gandhi achieved gained popularity overnight after starring in Sony Liv’s series Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. The show has taken him to new heights and he is now one of the busiest actors in the country.
In a recent interview, the Bhavai hero opened up about his struggle for the past ten years that not many people know about. The actor’s wife was diagnosed with a brain tumor and at the same time, his father was diagnosed with cancer. Pratik had no money left after his father’s demise and eventually had to move out of his house.
“Financial trouble, financial crisis, medical trouble, I’ve seen it all. But I never experienced a moment of breakdown or self-doubt, somehow. I’m the kind of person, the moment I see issues, I tend to think about the solutions. And that’s how my mind is trained,” Pratik Gandhi disclosed to Bollywood Bubble. “I guess everybody goes through this. There were some medical emergencies at home, be it my wife’s brain tumour operation, my father’s cancer. Eventually we lost him in 2018. Buying a house in Mumbai is a big deal. Even after a decade of being in Mumbai, there was a time when we didn’t have a house, suddenly the whole family was homeless,” the Bollywood actor further added.
Switching to acting when one has a family to support is, no doubt, a tough feat. “You struggle at that time, you manoeuver yourself, your emotions, and the whole family. And when you have a full-fledged family and you decide to quit your stable job and get into something like this, that is another struggle,” Pratik stated in this context.
Scam 1992 actor Pratik Gandhi will soon be seen appearing in a special episode of Amitabh Bachchan hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati. Moreover, the budding actor also has the upcoming film Bhavai, Amazon miniTV short film Shimmy, and Disney+ Hotstar’s Six Suspects in his kitty.
