Mumbai: Shreyas Talpade says there have been times when he was written of as an actor but he always managed to prove his talent. In his 19-year-old career, Shreyas has had a mixed bag of hits and flops but every film has been a learning for him, says the actor.

“Coming from a non-film background, all you need is an opportunity to show your work, show your versatility. And I am grateful for all the work that I have done and reached this far and still doing work I think it is great. Every film has taught me something. The journey is not over yet,” he said to a news agency.

Best known for his critically-acclaimed turns in Iqbal and Dor, the actor says he has learnt to balance praise and brickbats that are a part of being a performer.

“If everything is going in your favour or is good, then you will become complacent. I like challenges thrown at me… I don’t mind when I am not called a star, or when people say I am finished or think I am a non-actor. I know what I am capable of. I believe in myself.”

Shreyas says it is tough to sustain in this industry and he is aware that everyone goes through highs and lows.

“Even the biggest of stars including Amitabh Bachchan sir had to go through a weak phase, he had to struggle. It is part of your professional journey. One who has the hunger and passion for cinema will do whatever it takes to do good work.

“One thing that the industry has taught me is that it is never too late to start or restart at any point. Like how Bachchan sir reinvented himself,” he says.

Talpade began his acting career appearing in Marathi soap operas and doing stage shows across Maharashtra. He appeared also in the Zee TV soap opera Woh (1997) in which he was the main lead.

Shreyas has acted in mini-serials for the production Adhikari Brothers. His role in a very popular Marathi serial Damini as the character Tejas made waves in Maharashtra.

Fame arrived after Shreyas made his Bollywood debut in Nagesh Kukunoor’s Iqbal, which was written by Vipul K Rawal, where he played the role of a deaf and dumb youngster aspiring to be a fast bowler. The film and his performance were well received by critics as well as the audience.

The next film of Shreyas was Kukunoor’s Dor in which he played the comic role of a bahurupiya, a man with many disguises. This film was well received by critics, too.
