The actor shared some insights about his career in a live session on Instagram. Here’s what Ritvik Sahore shared with us:
What are you doing in your quarantine?
I am sleeping a lot. This is probably the only time my parents aren’t scolding me due to excess sleeping. Other than that, I have been working out, reading books and catching up on a lot of old movies.
Which movies are you watching currently?
I am watching some of the noteworthy works by Tom Hanks. I am a huge fan.
So, tell us how did you enter into acting?
This was the most uncertain thing of my life. I was in my 6th Standard back then. I remember preparing for an exam that was supposed to be conducted post that weekend. To freshen up my mind, my dad asked me to accompany mom and him to a nearby mall. I was hesitant at first but initially agreed. At the mall, I spotted the newly opened McDonalds hence asked Dad to take me to dine there. After that when we were on our way back home. Someone tapped my shoulder. He spotted me at McDonald’s and introduced himself as a casting director. He gave mom his card and asked her to bring me to a workshop the next day. After giving a thought to it, I finally went for the acting workshop.
After two months of attending workshops and auditioning, I was finally chosen for Ferrari Ki Sawari. Then Dangal happened and the rest is history.
How was your experience working with Aamir Khan?
I couldn’t have asked for any better experience. He is an extremely humble person. The first day I met him was when Mukesh Sir called us to his office for the script reading. I was waiting there when I saw a man entering in his casuals. I was like, “Is he, Aamir Khan?” He walked up to all of us himself. He talked to me, even invited me to his place for the screening of Dil Dhadakne Do. Aamir Sir was very cordial to all of us.
During the shoot, he would always help us in preparing for our scenes. I will always look up to him.
