Once a popular face on the silver screens of the 90s, Dino Morea suddenly went missing from films. Now as the handsome hunk returns to acting with his digital debut, Mentalhood, he finally opens up about what kept him away from the movie business.
While the actor has a slew of web shows and even a film in his kitty right now, Dino says there was a time when the offers coming his way were utter rubbish. The former Khatron Ke Khiladi contestant says that he was always clear about the fact that he would rather not work at all than do crappy projects.
Further talking about his absence from films, Dino Morea has been quoted by Hindustan Times saying, “The offers which came to me were absolutely rubbish. People were offering me terrible projects. Even if I did those films, people would have judged me for doing such a project and would have said ‘he is a flop actor’. It’s better to sit at home and do something else and wait for the right opportunity. And I have finally got the right opportunity in the form of web series.”
While not many actors keep themselves connect to the art when they are away from the business, Dino says the was constantly working on making himself better as an actor. “I was looking for something potential and the web series I am getting are fantastic. When I was at home, I was keeping myself ready. I had a teacher with whom I used to work three times a day. I believed that if someone approaches me with a good offer and says ‘let’s begin tomorrow’, I should be ready. If a big director comes to me ‘I want you in this role, the story is very good’, I will be ready to shoot. Even if an offer comes after 10 years, I have to be ready.”
Meanwhile ALTBalaji’s Mentalhood featured Karishma Kapoor, Sandhya Mridul, Shruti Seth among others in pivotal roles. Dino meanwhile has some interesting web series in the making like Tandav and Moghuls.
