Dhanush was last seen in Atrangi Re and was praised for his performance in the film. In an exclusive interview with Mayukh Majumdar, Content Strategist at Filmfare, Dhanush talks about how he became a casual actor. “I never wanted to be an actor … my heart was not here. I was kind of forced to act at a very young age. When I started, I was not into it. And then I met this legendary filmmaker , Balu Mahendra, who’s also a great film photographer, so he made a movie with me, and when we talked, he said you’re too young right now – I was 19 then – you can not see what I see in you , you should take this seriously, you have a gift, I hope you see it soon, and when such a person tells you this … then I thought I might have a gift, and I took it seriously. And I worked “After five to six years, I realized that sometimes you identify your calling, and sometimes your calling identifies you, and I know now that I could not have done otherwise,” he said.
When Dhanush first started in the film industry, he was severely mocked by many no-sayers and trolls for his looks. The actor remembers those days and says he is proud of the way he handled it back then.
“I started really young, I was 16 when I started. I met a lot of criticism for my looks, for the way I look. I was met with a lot of great success in the beginning, and then I had to go through a lot. failures where they had to write me off and then I had to come back. All this happened when I was very young and now I am more mature and I have experience and I know how to handle it better. But I am very proud of the way I managed that when I was 17, 18, 19, 20 years old when I did not know this world, had no one to guide me, had no experience, no maturity, and that teenager coped quite well.I feel it, yes, ” he says.
And after all these years in the film industry and in the public eye, does it become easier to deal with success and failure?
“I would be lying if I said that. Success affects me, failure affects me too. Mistakes make me sad. Success makes me happy. I am a normal human being and I try to learn from my mistakes and not repeat the same “I try to make sure that success does not affect the decisions I make in the future. I enjoy success inside my head by not being outside,” he says, acknowledging.
