“One fine day I just quit my corporate job and landed in Mumbai to pursue acting. I started with a comeo in TV show Swaranjali and then as they call it beginner’s luck, I got my first feature film Sunshine Music Tours and Travels (2016) and I was like I have arrived. But the film bombed, and I realised that things are not at all easy. Phir toh kaam aur struggle dono sath chalta raha. But, I knew that I should go with the flow without being unnecessarily selective. Be it television, films or OTT I tried to position myself in the best way possible without realising that it has been a decade – it amazes me how life comes to full circle,” says the Swami Ramdev Ek Sangharsh (2018) and Parineetii (2022) actor.

Ohri feels the year has already begun on a good note for him. “This is a special year for me for many more reasons. It’s not just about my journey but the kind of work that I have been doing in all these years. IPF with Rohit Shetty was a big leap as when you work with a maker like him, you know this can take you way higher in your career. That’s what I want from here on, hopefully we are going to have season 2 and mujhe aur mauka milega story mei aage aane ka,” he says.

For now, Ohri is busy looking for more projects.

“I have slowed down a bit as I’m in talks for a big series so that is in the pipeline for now. Auditioning is on because that is something I wish to continue with but to say yes to something I am surely taking thoda time,” concludes the actor.
