At that time, people had a different perspective. His contemporaries’ debut films were much more successful than his debut film, Even Mashaal didn’t work well, but his work was appreciated, thus he used to get more work. There were people who used to tell him that he doesn’t look like a star. So he used to tell them that let him improve, where his presence is concerned or his physicality is concerned. Anil believes that there is always room for improvement and if he doesn’t perform well then he’s cheating with his audience.
