Ex-Bigg Boss contestant Vishal Aditya Singh on facing rejections: I struggled a lot because of my diction and poor English
Actor and former ‘Bigg Boss 13′ contestant Vishal Aditya Singh’s journey in the industry was not so smooth. He faced a lot of rejections and had to struggle at the initial days of his career.
While opening up about his struggle, Vishal told Times of India, “I have gone through a lot of struggle because when I started my journey I was clueless how to go about it. I think when you start enjoying and learning from this struggle period you will be able to survive in the industry for a longer period. As far as I am concerned, mere paas peeche mud ke jaane ka koi option tha nahi… I had seen a struggling life in my village also, so I was not taken aback because of that phase and was prepared for it. I knew that I will have to work hard.”
Talking about the rejections, he said that rejections have made him perfect. “I faced a lot of rejections in life right from my village to here in Mumbai. Whenever I got rejected I always told myself I don’t have to listen to them and why are they even talking.”
He said that he always took rejections and worked on it when they were for his betterment.
“It is also important who is rejecting you. Like if someone rejected me by saying that my diction was not right, I knew it was my problem and I will have to work on it because I am going to be a part of a medium which requires me to speak clearly and fluently. I came from Bihar, so I faced a lot of rejections because of my diction, poor English and being desi and my attitude. But see, now I have managed to play a musician in ‘Kulfi Kumar Bajewala’, a prince in ‘Chandrakanta’ and a psycho lover in ‘Begusarai’, had I not gone through those rejections, I would have not been able to play those roles. I got the opportunity and I proved my talent by grooming myself and working hard on myself. I am still working on it,” added Vishal.
