An actor has to look a certain way in order to meet the criteria of their profession. However, ‘Anupamaa’ actor Sagar Parekh, who plays the new Samar (he replaced Paras Kalnawat) in the popular daily soap believes that talent is the foremost thing, but at the same time, one can’t stop talking about good looks.
He says: “My chocolate-boy looks often draws attention but I have never been a fan of my looks. More than my looks I believe and focus on my craft as an actor. I work on improving myself with every scene. Everything else is secondary. Of course, personality comes into account, especially when you are a part of the acting industry.”
“So, if people feel that I am good-looking, it adds to my confidence. I am fine with whatever tags come my way – chocolate boy or handsome.”
The actor who is happy with the way his career has shaped up credits it all to his hard work.
The ‘Balika Vadhu 2’ actor adds: “My learnings from my own career is just to believe in your craft even during adverse circumstances. There will be haters but you will find supporters too.”
He asserts the importance of having faith in one’s ability and rest will fall in place.
“You have to believe in yourself first before you try to convince others to believe in you. I practise believing in myself and that’s what I tell others to do,” concludes Sagar.
