So 20 to 25 people would gather in the house. Asif told that Nanihal had a very big mansion. And there was a Godown that we cleaned and set there and called people to perform. Tickets were also kept for this.
Asif further explained that everyone used to act differently during that time. Asif also had to read a lion but he forgot. Asif was hooted after forgetting the lion. During this time he was told that you can never become an actor.
Recalling the days of struggle, he said that when you do not have work, then there is depression. And then no one knows how much you have grown as an actor. Asif said that it used to be that 4-5 months is not work. Then I used to do theater. But I enjoyed acting. This is my passion.
