Amit Sarin surely knows how to go after his dreams. The actor left a highly successful career in Mumbai, to go and set base in Los Angeles, in the hope of being part of Hollywood, last year. He has been busy setting up his production house with his wife Vineesha and has a few film projects already. The first one to rollout is ‘Tiger Heart’.

Not only is he producing the film, but he will also be acting in it as well. “Titled Tiger Heart, it will have five principal actors — while four of them will be Hollywood artists, the fifth character is an Indian, and will be portrayed by me,” says Sarin.

Talking about how it all happened, Sarin says, “It was not easy to leave everything and move to the US. It required a lot of thinking and planning from our side. I was not too happy with the roles that I was being offered on TV but was just going with the flow as I needed the money. Our journey to Hollywood began when Vineesha developed a Hollywood project and things started moving last year and since this was a big Hollywood project, we wanted to be completely dedicated and decided to move to the US,” says the actor who has been seen in shows such as like ‘Kkusum’, ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, ‘Doli Saja Ke’ and ‘Pavitra Rishta’, and was last seen on ‘Nisha Aur Uske Cousins’.

Since the last five years, Sarin has been purely focussed to his Hollywood career. “All this time, I did not take up major work as I was busy setting up a production house with my wife and networking with the fraternity in the US,” he says.

Sarin is also geared up to try his luck as an actor in Hollywood too! “I have a good body of work which I have built in the last 17 years. The biggest advantage is being accessible. And now, when I am there, producing films, I am in that circle now and I am accessible. There may be a lot of people who are better than me but they might not be available at the time. Also, I think I am here at the correct time where there is a lot of demand for asian actors. I think it’s a matter of opportunity for meeting the availability. So, let’s see how it goes,” he says.
