Jugal Hansraj gained fame as a child actor in the acclaimed film Masoom, displaying his natural talent and screen presence. The actor went on to portray diverse characters in diverse movies. However, there was a phase, when he had to face failure. Recently, he recalled the struggles of his initial days while stating that he was called a “jinx.”
Jugal Hansraj says he was labelled as “jinx” amid film setbacks; reflects on facing criticism and personal jibes
In a conversation with the Times Of India, the Mohabbatein actor asserted, “Dealing with the failure of my movies was incredibly difficult. Not only did I face criticism from media reviewers, but they also attacked me personally. I've been called various names and labelled as a jinx. Moreover, the numerous films that never even started production led people to mock me. They would make comments like, ‘Oh it's about time Jugal attends mahurats of his own films,’ when I attended events for other movies.”
The actor-turned-author shared that in the past, he would feel deeply upset when his projects were cancelled, sometimes even resulting in tears. However, as he grew older, he became more resilient to such disappointments. When informed that a film he had signed on for was no longer happening, he would politely thank the caller and end the conversation. Over time, he developed a sense of detachment from these situations. Despite this resilience, he admitted that it can still be difficult to deal with negative feedback about his work, particularly after investing significant effort into it.
The Papa Kehte Hain actor added, “Sometimes, people take it personally, which is unnecessary. It's just a movie, and one can either like it or not without resorting to personal attacks. The industry is tough, and people can be harsh and cruel, but that's the reality one must accept when entering this field.”
He concluded by saying, “It was challenging because even the people you consider friendly or nice to you can change based on the success or failure of your movies. Some individuals only come back when things are going well. That's just how some people are, although not everyone.”
