Popular television star Gurmeet Choudhary will soon be making his big-screen debut. The actor says that he had chosen to act on television first after receiving advice from the legendary filmmaker, Yash Chopra.
Speaking to DNA India, Choudhary said, One day I managed to meet Yash Chopra. It was he who guided me to do TV. I was 18-19 years old then and Yashji gave me the example of Shah Rukh Khan. He said, ‘SRK se bada example kya hai. He has come from TV. Why don’t you also do TV and make a name for yourself there first’. That’s how I started doing serials.
As well as having acted in popular television serials such as Ramayan۪, Geet Hui Sabse Parayi۪ and Punar Vivah۪, Choudhary has also participated in the reality shows Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa۪ and Khatron Ke Khiladi۪.
The actor will be making his Bollywood debut in Vishesh Films۪ Khamoshiyan۪, which also stars Ali Fazal and Sapna Pabbi. It is slated to release on 30th January 2015.
