Aditya Roy Kapur, who is all set to play a double role in Gumraah, a film that he signed almost three years ago, spoke about success and failure he’s encountered in his 14-year career in the Hindi film industry.

He says that as an actor, he listens to people’s opinions but finally does what his instincts tell him to, as Bollywood is a “tricky industry to traverse.”

He tells Indian Express, “I think it is good to listen to people’s opinions but it is very important to develop a strong gut (feeling) about taking your own decisions. When you can completely claim your successes and failures and not blame them on anyone else… it is something you develop over time. If you just dilute it by constantly listening to too many people (then) you won’t know what you really feel for something. So it is important that you are your best guide in a certain way. Yes, it is a tricky industry to traverse. There are advantage of having someone take you through certain things, but when it comes to the kind of films, you need to trust your own instincts. You can still go wrong, but at least those decisions will be your own.”

Aditya made his acting debut in 2009, however, his breakthrough was Aashiqui 2 (2013) with Shraddha Kapoor. Aditya says, “Over the years, I have realised I want to do more work. I enjoy being on set a lot, I love it, that’s probably one of my favourite places to be. So, my learning is to try and do more of it and not take big gaps. I’m not necessarily really productive in those gaps, I’d rather work more I guess.”

The actor is loving this phase in his career and wants to make sure he makes the most of it

“To try and do things that keep you up at night, get you nervous, and stuff that you haven’t done before. I want to try out new things. And, more than just the role it has to be the story that connects, the film has to work in totality. There’s no real formula and I don’t think that the way I choose films is going to change because I am going through this phase now,” he says.
