The actor will play Tiger Shroff’s rival in SOTY 2
Television actor Abhishek Bajaj, currently seen on the show Bitti Business Wali, is all set to enter Bollywood. BT has it that he will play Tiger Shroff’s rival in the upcoming film, Student Of The Year 2 (SOTY2).
The actor, who has been part of shows like Hitler Didi and Dil Deke Dekho, said, “Landing this film has made me believe that some dreams indeed come true. I had never thought that I would land a Karan Johar movie so early in my career. Also, it’s not a blink-and-miss role. So, quite unlike the popular perception, that most TV actors only get bit roles in movies, I will be essaying a pivotal character.”
Abhishek is aware that his on-screen rival, Tiger, has an envious physique. So, is he trying to match up to it? He replies, “More than matching up with Tiger, being fit is a part and parcel of our job. I work out on Aksa beach, go to the gym after I pack up and also follow a strict high-protein diet.” Juggling his TV show and the film is proving to be quite hectic for the actor. While his show is being shot in Allahabad, SOTY 2 is being filmed in Mussoorie. But Abhishek has no complaints. “On days when I am travelling from one location to the other, I sleep in the car, but I guess you can’t achieve anything in life without hard work.”
