Thankfully That ‘Patal Lok’ changed it. It told people that I can do more than comedy. ”
The actor says that he was able to prove his versatility due to OTT. “What OTT did gave me the eyes of the audience. It gave me stature. But I think OTT gave me a good full-fledged actor status. Before that, I was only doing comedic roles and I was tired of myself every time. The kind of roll offers was happening at the time. ”
He says “I was such that I have not come here only to do comedy. I can do a lot of other characters and I am ready. All my training is to prove my versatility to the filmmakers and the audience.” Abhishek says that while he was sure that ‘Patal Lok’ would do well, he did not expect it to be popular.

He says, “In Hades, I understood what I was doing right or wrong. I believed it would do well but I didn’t know it would do so well. Before its release, I got the word ‘viral’. I did not understand.”
He adds “Before the trailer (launch), I was in a bad condition. I had finished my shoot and a lot of things were in line, but everything stopped because of a sudden lockdown. I realized that God Has brought it back to the same position. ”
“I used to complain a lot to the universe as to why you chose me to be a victim. Everything changed as soon as the trailer came on OTT channels and I realized that it was a gift of the universe and I was completely grateful. It changed my life completely. ”
Talking about his future plans, he says “I want to choose the project with ethical values and responsibilities. I think it is important for actors to do it. You should have a voice that is important.” I want to do projects that have some story. “
