Adhyayan Suman: Many people wanted me to leave and they even wrote my obituaries even before I was dead
Though ‘Raaz 2’ was a decent hit, Adhyayan Suman lost many big films and in 2010-11, things started changing for him and perceptions were built around him that he didn’t want to work and all these things put him in a shell and got really difficult and depressing for Adhyayan. That phase of his life was very tough for him.
Adhyayan told us, “Everyone started asking me why I am not working. I am not sitting at home by my choice. I am sitting at home because I am not getting the right work to so. In the middle, if you see from 2011 -2018-19, I did things which I didn’t want to do but I had no choice. I couldn’t just sit at home and eat on my father’s money. I wanted to get out of my house, become an independent actor and human being who is trying to make a name for himself. Sometimes when life doesn’t give you choices, what the hell do you do. You have to make sunshine out of nothing. I have no reason or explanation to why I didn’t get work. It’s very disrespectful for me to pinpoint at people from the industry and I know who they are. It’s absolutely wrong for me to do it right now because that’s stupid. Every industry has manipulation, hierarchies, and own rules. If you want to be a survivor here, you have to fight it or leave and run. I am not the guy who is going to run from here; so many people wanted me to. They wrote my obituaries even before I was dead. I didn’t let that happen. I realised that someday my work will come out and it will speak for itself.”
Adhyayan has got positive reviews for his role of Tinka Singh in Prakash Jha’s ‘Aashram’. He is thankful to Jha for offering him the web series. “I feel that ‘Aashram’ is just a tip of the iceberg right now; just the beginning of who I am going to be in the next 10 years and I am not saying it out of arrogance. I am saying it out of what I had faced and gone through and I am as grounded as I can be,” said Adhyayan.
