I was dying inside: Ronit


Mumbai 23 March (SVN): He received unprecedented popularity with his role as Rishabh Bajaj in “Kasauti Zindagi Kii” and later as Mihir Virani in “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”, becoming one of the highest paid actors in the small screen industry. But Ronit Roy says there came a point when he felt he was “dying inside”, and so he distanced himself from the television medium.
“You know, there was a time I earned as much money as of a film actor during my days in TV. But I had to stop it somewhere… Because things were not happening that way (in a progressive manner), and I was dying inside.
“I was telling myself ‘No, I cannot do it anymore’, ‘I cannot push myself anymore’. So I stopped working on TV series,” Ronit told IANS in an interview. Ronit, who had already worked in films before his stint in television, did more small screen shows like “Bandini”, “Adaalat” and “Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyar”, besides some reality show entertainers. But films beckoned him yet again.
From “Udaan” and “Ugly” to “2 States”, “Student of the Year”, “That Girl In Yellow Boots” and “Kaabil”, Ronit has done an array of roles in films. He feels “good work in cinema” is coming to him.
