Dhairya Karwa, who fetched a desirous role in the upcoming film Gehraiyaan. Four years ago, when he arrived in Mumbai from Delhi, he wanted to be a model. However, the city and his love for Bollywood made him pursue a career in films instead. 

He calls himself lucky because, unlike many other strugglers, Dhairya, since the time he began in 2016, kept getting interesting roles in reputed projects that helped him learn as an actor and get noticed by filmmakers.

The ‘Gehraiyaan’ trailer has got all the fans excited and they can’t wait for the film to release. The film stars Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Deepika Padukone, and Dhairya Karwa. For those unaware, Dhariya Karwa is not new to films. He has worked in Uri: The Surgical Strike, 83, and several web series prior to Gehraiyaan.

The actor says he is thankful to Karan and Deepika, who made him feel extremely comfortable on set. Dhairya said,

“When I met Karan for the project, he gave me the biggest and the warmest hug. He told me you are here, and you are here for a reason. You are good, now just enjoy it. Don’t take any pressure and keep doing what you are doing. His words were very reassuring and comforting. As for Deepika, I was just smitten by her. She is everything you would expect her to be and more. We know of her as this humongous star and a fabulous actor, yet she’s so simple and warm.”

The young actor hopes that the film opens up more avenues for him. He says, 

“Surviving in Mumbai itself is a challenge and Bollywood is an altogether new field for me. Finding your feet can be challenging. But then everything comes with its own challenges. It is all about your outlook towards it. The nature of the business is that it is going to be disheartening for you as the rejections are always going to be more than the acceptance you receive. However, the rejections are never personal. You need to understand that you didn’t suit the part and hence you didn’t qualify for the project. That’s it."

He further added saying, 

"But at the end of the day, we are humans and have a heart. We tend to get affected, and at times, it does break you. Instead of crying over the opportunities that I missed, I celebrate the fact that I got to be a part of three fabulous films. That’s all that matters.”

The film Gehraaiyan will release on 11 February this year on the OTT platform and is directed by Shakun Batra.
