Actors should aim for versatility and success in equal parts, says Abhishek Bachchan as he believes it is the only way to they can secure their next acting job.
Abhishek, who has shown his acting chops in movies such as "Yuva", "Dhoom", "Bunty Aur Babli", "Guru", "Dostana", "Paa", "Manmarziyaan" and "Ludo", believes versatility alone will not guarantee an actor employment.
"It is important to be more versatile today than five to ten years ago. As an actor, if you want to be employed and remain employed, you have to be versatile, so that the makers have the confidence that no matter what we give them they will be able to pull it off.
"With versatility, you have to be successful as well because if you are not good at it, you are not going to get your next job," the 46-year-old actor told reportedly.
Abhishek is one of the major Bollywood stars who ventured into the OTT space with the hit web series "Breathe: Into the Shadows".
"You have to be much more versatile today because there is that much more work and people are accepting different kinds of work," he added.
"If you get an offer, or you get more work, that means you are doing something right, and you should pat yourself on the back and get back to working," he added.
Abhishek's performance in the recently released second season of his OTT series "Breathe: Into the Shadows" has garnered praise. The show's sophomore installment arrived on the streamer on November 9.
"As an actor, you jump at an opportunity like that. It is a wonderful character and there is a wonderful scope for performance. It is something I had not done before. It is an opportunity that you don't want to let go of," he said.
