EXCLUSIVE: Scam1992 actor Pratik Gandhi speaks about the thin line between confidence and overconfidence
If one has seen the show or is familiar with Harshad Mehta’s life will know that he always sought to achieve higher goals. This led to him taking bigger and bigger risks and eventually doing fraud. Talking about his character’s journey from being confident to overconfident, Pratik said, “There is a very very thin line between confidence and overconfidence. In fact, the way I have created this character, the entire journey, from confidence to overconfidence to arrogance to ego, and at every stage it is a very very thin line. So the person who is on that trajectory would not even understand when he shifted his gears from confidence to overconfidence.”
“So something like I will be able to do it and I will is how I look at confidence. And when you actually see something not happening and you are still behind it, then no no. I don't want to see those pitfalls, but I will still do it. That is a very thin line. You can't not look at the pitfalls, you can't avoid their existence, because they are there, right there. And only the third person will realise that somebody or something is changing and the one who is into it will never realise it,” he added.
