Television actor Gurmeet Choudhary, currently seen in a reality show, will make his Bollywood debut with Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films. He signed a three-film deal with the Bhatts after turning down the lead role in a 90s hit remake. Says Gurmeet, "I can't divulge any details about my debut film, but it will go on floor soon. The Bhatts have assured me a good launch. I look up to them and will seek their guidance."
As a child — he hails from Bhagalpur, a small town in Bihar — Gurmeet had just one dream: to be an actor. He felt it was important to do television as the medium was a good platform for a budding actor. "Shooting 12 scenes in a day and working continuously helped me sharpen my acting skills. It also gave me confidence to face the camera," he says. The Bhatts, we can see, are impressed. Says Mahesh Bhatt, "Gurmeet is a star in the making. We see a lot of potential in him; that's why we have roped him in for three films."
