Anil, nevertheless, confesses that his profession has not all the time been hunky-dory, and he has had his lows too. The actor mentioned, “There have been lows.

But I guess it the combination of hard work and lady luck that I have been able to go on for so long. I made the right choices at the right time and never took it lightly. I have learnt from my mistakes and I have tried to not repeat those mistakes. God has been kind, that’s how I’d ultimately sum it up. There were people who were more talented, better looking, more hard working, more passionate but lady luck and hard work helped.”

He concluded by saying, “When you watch something, don’t judge someone. There must be a reason for someone to do something. There are times we do films for several reasons. There have been times I have done films to help friends even if I wasn’t convinced. There are different reasons. But what is important is that you do all these things, but ultimately survive.”
