I also made a lot of films for friends, but most of all, I follow my instincts. I think we have a life, we might as well try to make the most of it. Especially in a profession that gives you so many opportunities to try different things. I didn’t want to limit myself to a false illusion. (In a mocking voice) ‘Okay, I’m doing this right now, I’ll only do those kinds of roles, I won’t do anything else.’ This is not what I wanted to do. “
“I come from a very humble middle class Maharashtrian background. I came with a lot of dreams, saw a lot of movies, and always liked all kinds of movies. From Amitabh Bachchan’s Deewar to Nagesh Kukunoor’s Teen Deewarein, I loved them all, ”added Shreyas Talpade.

When I started with Iqbal, of course, Nagesh Kukunoor suggested Dor to me. Subhash Ghai (also) offered me Apna Sapna Money Money. “
Subhash Ghai produced the film which also starred Celina Jaitley, Riteish Deshmukh, Riya Sen and Jackie Shroff, in addition to Shreyas. “I remember when he (Subhash Ghai) said ‘Sangeeth Sivan, who directs Apna Sapna Money Money (2006), wants to do a narration for you.’ I said ‘But sir! This is a commercial movie!’ And he asked me: “So what? Aren’t you going to make commercial films? “
Shreyas Talpade added: “I said to him ‘No, I never thought about it. I never thought that someone would really approach me for a commercial film. So there I was doing all kinds of dancing. , dialogue-baazi, romance and all (in Apna Sapna Money Money). I think I enjoyed every part of my trip. I think every day is a new day.

It is their (audience / critic) right to pan. You feel bad, I don’t deny it, but the public also has the right to say what they feel. “
