This week in our Tellyblazer segment, we have Abhishek Bajaj talking to ETimes TV about how he wanted to become a CBI officer and ended up winning hearts in showbiz.

Starting with television, then moving on to movies, how do you feel?

You always dream of where you want to be. If you are honest with your work, things will work out. I started out as a model, then I did a lot of print ads, then I did TV. It happened gradually and I always want to level up after each project.

Being a boy from Delhi, how did you end up coming to Mumbai and being an actor?

I never wanted to be an actor, because I didn’t know the way. I wanted to be a CBI officer. I knew I had to study hard and get through it. I got 90% in 12th grade, I studied economics at the University of Delhi and I was preparing for the civil service. I came to Mumbai with my mother to meet her friend. I just found out there was an audition and I gave it. I was selected and in six months I did 18 television commercials. And I was told that in Mumbai, it takes six months to make contacts, you have to struggle a lot, you can’t find a job. Fortunately, by the grace of God, this never happened to me.

How did you become a television actor?

Television has been a learning experience for me. At work, I learned a lot. I have been able to play many different roles on television. I could grow as a versatile actor. I worked on my craft. That’s how I ended up bagging movies.

Without having a sponsor in the industry, was it easy to maintain?

Nothing is easy. I really had to work hard. There are always better actors, who will come to replace. There is fierce competition. You have to be better than others and be different. I worked on my acting rather than my appearance. People feel comfortable where they are, with the money they receive. I was not satisfied. You must continue and cannot go back.

While working in television, what was the learning experience for you?

Everything I learned, I learned on television. It was school for me. It is now that I feel that I am working. On television you do 8-9 scenes, whereas in cinema you do 2-3 scenes. On television, I learned a lot about technicalities, lighting, camera angles. I have played versatile roles on television.

Often, the actors talked about being replaced at the last minute, have you ever been confronted?

Fortunately, never. In fact, I was repeated several times. I worked with very few people, but it was a very good experience. You have to give your best. Kaam upar neeche ho jaye, by insaan upar neeche nahi hona chahiye.

Working with directors like Karan Johar, Madhur Bhandarkar, how has the trip been for you?

Everything that happens to me, happens very gradually. I go up gradually. I started with the production of Karan Johars, which makes everyone dream. It was a good start for me and that’s how I started. Then I had Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, directed by Abhishek Kapoor. He gave several cult hits and even this film caused a lot of talk about him. I am also very grateful to have worked with Madhur Bhandarkar. He is a great visionary. I am in a very happy space. I’m happy right now to think my career is going the way I wanted it to.

How did you feel when you signed Student of the Year 2?

When SOTY2 arrived, I gave 4 auditions. I kept thinking that I shouldn’t lose. When I joined and started working, that’s when I understood. When I got it, I couldn’t feel anything at all. I was not told what the size of the role would be. In doing so, I learned how important the role was. I am grateful that I was able to debut with the role.

I bonded really well with Tiger (Shroff) bhai. I meet him again. We meet for football. We are discussing fitness. I bonded with each of them.

After SOTY2, did you feel the change in people’s view of you?

When I worked in television, it was nahi milta tha recognition. When I made SOTY2, each of my scenes was appreciated and recognized. People noticed me as an actor. My view of myself has expanded. I started to take myself seriously. I have so many directors and casting directors who have personally messaged me about my performance. I didn’t even know how they got my number. I stepped out of the crowd and got my own identity.

Your role in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui was very popular, how did you prepare for the role?

When the role was offered to me, I said to myself that no one could do it better than me. I have to give the best of myself. I had 16 stitches in my hand and had to lift a filled cylinder. It was written in the script. I did it. It was a fitness-based role and if I told them about my injury, they might not take me. I made sure I looked like a crossfit champ. I trained so much that if there had been a cross fit championship for real, I would have won it. I had seen a lot of crossfit games to see the body language. I worked very hard and the movie Madhur Bhandarkar also happened because of that.

For your part, what was your diet like at the time?

For the year 2 student, I weighed 78 kg. I reduced my weight to look like a student. For Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, I had to look like a crossfit champion. I became 85 kg. I went zero sugar for 50 days. Until the climax was reached, I was on a sugar-free diet. I have a sweet tooth and it was so hard. It was a task for me. I used to have jaggery instead. And with 16 stitches, it was all the more difficult. Again for Babli Bouncer, I lost my muscles because I had to look like an engineer.

We are both Punjabis. Our producer and director are Punjabis. So it was Punjabi vibes all the time. We bonded very well. Punjabi food, songs we talked about all the time.

On his next film Babli Bouncer

It was great. That’s what I was looking forward to. It was really exciting. It’s a very different role I’m playing right now.

Experience working with Madhur Bhandarkar and Tamannah Bhatia

It was great fun working with Madhur sir. It was like working as a family. He is the captain of the ship and brought everyone together as a team. There were a lot of funny moments.
