Actor Dino Morea, who is currently enjoying the success of his roles in recent OTT shows such as “The Empire”, “Tandav” and “Hostages”, has gone through a rough patch in his acting career in recent years. .
In an interview with ANI, Morea recalled a phase of his life when makers only contacted him for mediocre projects.
“I’ve been waiting for great opportunities for a very long time. I didn’t say yes to any of the mediocre or terrible roles that happened to me from 2011 to 2017 and 2018. I said no to all of those projects. I kept saying no. I was really worried if someone ever approached me for good roles, but at the same time, I kept working on myself. I just prepared myself so that if someone offered me a good role, I could go to the sets and shoot properly, ”he said.
Morea, who made his Bollywood debut with “Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi” in 1999, believes his thirst for good work earned him a brilliant second round.
“I was hungry. I was hungry for a good job. And I think when you’re hungry, and you’re ready, and you’re ready, the universe just gives it to you. I feel all the red lights of my career have become green lights now. The wait was worth it. It was scary, but it was worth it, “he added, thanking his fans for showering him with love for his performance as the antagonist Muhammad Shaybani Khan in “The Empire”.
In addition to trying his hand at various acting roles, Morea is also busy with his stint as a producer.
“I’m currently enjoying this time, you know, when it rains, it rains. I want to be so involved in the industry, I want to create content, I want to play great content, and I want to produce great content. So I’m in a very good space right now. It’s a good time. Now is the perfect time to create content. Everyone is raising the bar … So I’m in the right place at the right time and I really hope to make this a special time for me, ”said Morea with a beaming smile.
