He was born in a Chawl in Mumbai in a room of 10 by 12, where he lived with his five siblings. He spent his childhood amidst poverty in a mud house in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh. He misses his first home, Mumbai. Without any education and directions, they realized that there is one thing that they can do in life and that is – cinema.
A 17-year-old boy, having dreams in his eyes and making acting his passion, fled from his home to Mumbai with just 500 rupees in his hands. To fulfill the dreams of her poor parents, she played the role of even Sita in Ramlila and the same Ravi Kishan Shukla, Today is a superstar of Bhojpuri films, having won the tough battle of life. He gladly accepted what life gave him. He did more than 200 films in Hindi and Bhojpuri languages and left a different impression in the hearts and minds of the audience.
Business Khabar During the conversation with him, he openly discussed the struggles of his life, the principles of his life.
“People come to Mumbai but I have reached Mumbai on my knees. There was a time when I used to distribute newspaper in Bandra for which I got only 25 rupees a month. At the same time, I was completing my graduation. I was just waiting for the sunrise to come in my life. I always believe that there can be no greater legacy than honesty.
My family was financially unstable. My needs got me everything. But I feel that God has always blessed me. I did not plan anything further. Because many times my good planning had also failed.
When I could not find work in the Hindi film industry, I received an offer for a Bhojpuri film, in which many people were rejected. We were not even sure that she would be ready to be a film or not, But this film started my career. I always kept myself ready for success and this inspired me to move forward. As if my life had become a gamble and I was drifting into it. But I never gave up on my dreams. I was afraid whether I would get a chance in Bollywood after doing Bhojpuri film. But I worked hard for it day and night. And my hard work paid off.
We must remember that success comes through hard work and not just by wishing.
I always believe that work should be done with honesty and never give up. My honesty is the proof of my work. In the struggles of the early days of this industry, I have accepted my limits and always trusted my ability. Generally people are unable to stand the test of life and for this reason it is seen that some people who come to Mumbai with great enthusiasm and dreams, give their knees in front of the struggles of life.
Bombay first takes the exam, then reviews and finally wins.
Whether you have to spend life after eating vada pav or sleeping on the pavement but do not give up. If you recognize your ability, then fight the struggles of life and stay firm. Let your dreams flourish and face life’s challenges. Remember, strong intentions lead to strong work.
Finally, as usual, I would like to say that life is a flag, yet there is pride. Never lose your self-esteem for any person or thing. This is the one thing that will eventually make you an honour and inspire you to move forward.
