Best of 2020: I call this year 'Scam'-demic for me- Pratik Gandhi on 'Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story' undisputed success


Hailed as the find of the year and the greatest performer of the decade, Pratik Gandhi is reaping the fruit of hard work and struggle with the success of Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story. Be it from the industry of veterans or the audience, Pratik is being showered with love from all corners. Now, as 2020 is coming to an end, PeepingMoon got in touch with Pratik to know his take-away from the otherwise jinxed year. 

Pratik, who prefers calling 2020 a 'scam-demic' year, said he feels speechless when someone asks him how does success taste. Looking forward to signing challenging roles, working with mavericks and featuring in big projects, Pratik confessed that he is living his dream after a 15-year-long struggle to make it big. "For actors, it is very difficult to understand how good or bad I am. These kinds of incidence (success of Scam 1992) is very important to grow," Pratik added.

Reacting to the overall response Scam 1992 has received from the industry and fellow actors, Pratik felt, "Harshad Mehta's character is a dream role for any actor." He further shared, "I loved Harshad's zest to make a place in an industry which was very classist, and he ruled that industry. I also took home the learning that it's good to have a dream but you can't become the slave of your own dream."

Pratik further spoke to us about his 'relationship status' with success, whether anyone will be able to replicate Scam 1992's big win and the role he would have traded off on-screen.
