“I was rejected from some 250 auditions, over 3 years, before Mardaani” – Tahir Raj Bhasin

Bollywood News

Acclaimed Bollywood actor Tahir Raj Bhasin is making a sensational disclosure. Tahir, who has stamped his presence in Bollywood through his brilliant acting, is a rank outsider to the industry. He says he was rejected 250 times before he was signed on by Aditya Chopra for Mardaani, a film that brilliantly unveiled him in Bollywood!

"I was rejected from some 250 auditions, over 3 years, before Mardaani" - Tahir Raj Bhasin

Tahir reveals, “Anything that’s worthwhile takes time and this is something I understood when I first came to Mumbai. I was rejected from some 250 auditions over 3 years before Mardaani but I used this as a positive feel and feedback. It meant I needed to grow and growth came from workshops and hours of practice.”

He adds, “The improvements that came as a result of obstacles prepared me to be propelled when the time was right. Strength lay in getting hit and in the will to keep moving forward. Today’s world is all about that simple message. We have all been affected directly or indirectly by an unforeseen time and courage is to make ourselves better, fitter, and stronger for the test of time to come.”

Despite the overwhelming number of rejections, Tahir never lost hope and believed he was destined to shine in Bollywood. He says, “To be honest, I never saw my initial time in Mumbai as a struggling phase. It was an aspiring phase. I was visualizing a dream and aspiring to make it real and it’s the hardship and journey that make the successes worth celebrating.”

Tahir will be seen in Looop Lapeta as a romantic lead opposite Taapsee Pannu, in Bulbul Tarang opposite Sonakshi Sinha and Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein, in which he has been paired with Sweta Tripathi. He will also be seen in the Ranveer Singh starrer 83, directed by Kabir Khan, in which he plays the role of the legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.
