Amit Sadh reveals he was banned by the television industry; Read deets inside
Before venturing into the film industry, Amit Sadh was a known face on the small screen. The handsome actor bagged his first major role in teen drama ‘Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr’ and later he went on to make his Bollywood debut with ‘Phoonk 2’.
Amit recently revealed that he was banned by the television industry for being outspoken. And it was then when he decided to venture into films. Read on to know the deets.
Revealing about what made him try his hands in the movies, Amit in an interview with Bollywood Hungama said, “I did not leave television to go to the movies. In television, they banned me.

'Don't solely look for Godfathers, don't solely rely on them, don't solely look for inspiration in successful people'. Yes, use them as a source of inspiration at times when you need a push, guidance, or a life lesson. But never depend on them. Whenever I hoped & expected things from my idols, I was always disappointed because I just waited for things to just happen. Well, they don't come and do the actual thing for you. You have to get up off your own arse & do it yourself. Go hone your skills & take that class to better yourself, go write that script, put yourself out there. That's what will take you places. Action takes you places. Knowing or expecting it from others doesnt. Since I have been walking this path of figuring out, investing time with myself, inspiring my self, I have seen some sort of success if you want to call it that. Mostly what I have understood, as a matter of the fact, that when you heavily rely and invest in yourself, you prepare yourself for what you can offer to the world. That is when you are on the right path. To avoid disappointment, expect everything from yourself and nothing from others. I hope this message resonates with you & may this be a catalyst for inspiration or a shift of focus. Genuinely there is so much inspiration around us. People we meet daily, we just have to actually pay attention to everyone we meet. Be it the guy serving you coffee or some random person… my cook Ravi (second picture) he came to me 10 years back & he didn't even know how to cook, today he cooks all cuisines, and is an important part of my team… and I am inspired by him. Switch off your autopilot and appreciate the little things in life, look around you and you'll find inspiration. It's just a matter of acknowledging. Keep searching & stay curious. I have learned over the years to inspire myself correctly. Look within yourself what you have to offer to the world rather than hoping for the world to do something for you. Have a nice day!
The ‘Kai Po Che’ actor went on to reveal that in his 20s he was like a rebellion always ready to fight for a cause. The talented actor furthermore shared that later in his career he decided to channel his anger and frustration into his craft. He met some good people who helped him in realizing the true purpose of his life. “Destiny never changes with money, but sometimes it turns by meeting good people too,” he said.
On the work front, Amit was last seen in the web series ‘Breathe: Into The Shadows’. He will be next seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘Yaara’ and Anu Menon’s biographical drama ‘Shakuntala Devi’. Both films will be releasing on OTT platforms.
