Ronit Roy is one of the most talked-about actors, especially in the television industry. Though today he is a popular actor and also successful, his early days were not a bed of roses. He had experienced his share of ups and downs in his life. Ronit has also worked in movies. He made his debut with ‘Jaan Tere Naam’ but after that, he didn’t get a ‘single call’.

In an interview with Times of India, he said, “My first film was released in 1992 ‘Jaan Tere Naam’ which was a blockbuster. It was a silver jubilee and silver jubilee of that day means Rs 100 crore movie of today. My debut film was of that level. 1992 it released and for the next six months, I did not receive a single call. Then I got all kinds of trashy work which I did for three years and around 96 all the work dried up.”

He said that for four years he was sitting at home. He had a small car but had no money for petrol. He would walk up to his mother’s house for a meal as he didn’t have money even after being in a silver jubilee film.

Ronit requested the TV actors to not take their life as it is not a solution. He further said, “I did not kill myself. I am not passing judgement on anybody. Everyone at some point in their life faces a financial crisis. I feel if you are facing a financial crisis then killing yourself is not a solution. I don’t see any sense in taking your life because that can’t be a solution.”

Ronit spoke about this in reference to the deaths of TV actors Manmeet Grewal and Preksha Mehta who committed suicide due to financial crisis.

On the work front, Ronit Roy is currently gearing up for the release of his web series ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain’ Season 3 that will premiere on June 6 on ALTBalaji.
