Param Singh on when he was removed from his debut film after working on it for 4 months
Singh revealed how he chose to do television shows after a setback he faced early on in his career where he worked on a film for 4 months and was later told that they wanted a known face.
Actor Param Singh has been on the tube for the longest time now where he has been in multiple TV shows that have went on to become huge successes. However and while his TV career has turned out well, the actor could have had an amazing movie career as well if the one instance hadn't happened that happened with him.
Interestingly, in an at length interview with ETimes TV, Singh revealed how he chose to do television shows after a setback he faced early on in his career where he worked on a film for 4 months and was later told that they wanted a known face. He also talked about if he was disappointed that his latest Sony TV show, Ishq Par Zor Nahin went off-air earlier than expected.
First talking about the show going off-air, he said, "Yes we definitely feel bad, but my field is all about rejections and everything is trial and error based. We are working in the form of art, and I didn’t have any idea that people would love it so much online. But it shut down as the ratings were not that great. Initially, I felt bad for 2/3 days but then I moved on. Because this was not my debut show, I’ve done shows before so I know every show has its journey. We were also in talks for season 2 but as we all know Akshita is doing another show so currently it is not possible anytime soon as the show won’t be possible without her. I would say Ishk Par Zor Nahin was a nice show, it was not dragged, people liked it, we were appreciated for the story, dialogues and performances."
I was a little shattered that time and that rejection hit me really hard. And I decided that I won’t wait to do films anymore-
When asked about the instance when he was replaced in a film after working on it for 4 months, he said, "I also waited for sometime and was supposed to do a film. I also did a workshop for that film. It was being made by Barry John sir and I remember many people had auditioned for it but I was lucky I got selected. This was in 2011 and I was very happy that I had cracked it and I was working with my guru. And you won’t believe that film released in 2018 on a OTT platform. It was made in 2012 and I even did a workshop for 4 months for the role. Later, the producers had told me that they needed a known face. I was a little shattered that time and that rejection hit me really hard. And I decided that I won’t wait to do films anymore. I had also spent a lot of money on my studies. And then you have your parents hopes, you also want to do something in life. I decided to prove myself and act whatever the platform is."
He added, "I have friends who are still waiting and have not done anything in their career so far just because they want to do films. They have just done 5/6 plays and nothing else. They are very happy, they get offered television shows but they don’t want to do it. The fact is everyone wants to do everything they also want: name, fame, money, satisfaction."
While the talks about a Season 2 for Ishq Par Zor Nahin are on, Singh hasn't signed on for anything else as of yet.
