Actor Mohit Daga, whom we are currently seeing in Tera Yaar Hu Mein, has gone through a lot last year when he decided to go back to his hometown Gadarwara, MP.
Mohit who has been a popular face and part of shows like Love Story, Left Right Left, Bhaskar Bharti, Aise Karo Na Vidaa, Bairi Piya, Ek Mutthi Aasman, Aapke Aa Jane Se was not getting work commensurate to his talent. He says, “Before Lockdown the trigger happened, after Ek Mutthi Aasman and Aapke Aa Jane Se I was not getting work. I was going for auditions but something or the other was happening and it was not getting materialised. I used to think maybe my acting career was destined to this much only. Then last March during Holi I went to my hometown and met my Guruji. My wife Shweta and daughter came later on and then lockdown happened and we decided to stay back. For two months everything was stand still and we were all locked inside. During that time I was hating myself for not going to work for so long. I was there in my hometown, while unlock happened before Mumbai with cases reducing. When things were opening up slowly I thought of starting my own business. My family already has a business of Agricultural hardware which was owned by my father. But I told him I want to do something new. Then I started a business in cement and concrete and by the grace of God I was doing well, got an acceptance”.
But when Mohit was doing well in his business his better half Shweta was not well mentally. Mohit adds, “Shweta and I have been together since our nursery days and we have known each other very well. We both love Mumbai and she knows how much I love acting. She was not accepting the fact that I will be saying goodbye to acting. And after a while she was down with a bad bout of spondylitis and also vertigo. We started the medication and all this happened because of her overthinking. Then I had to come to Mumbai in October to wrap up things and also some pending stuff had to be taken care of. I started getting calls for auditions and also got episodic work in Madam Sir. But there was a strange realisation from my side which I noticed that I was not having enough confidence and I used to cry at home after work. Somehow the rhythm was missing. Last week of November I was supposed to go back to my hometown for my cousin sister’s marriage. So I went to town for some shopping and that point of time I planned to visit the Mumba Devi temple as holy places were opening up slowly. I went and prayed and told her I don’t know whether I will come back or not. But call me if I get a good role. And I also went to the seaside and was looking at the sea for hours, was thinking will I get to see sea again or not?”.
He also added this bit, “After that when I was travelling in Amritsar with my friends I got a call from Tera Yaar Hoo Main and got the role of Shakti Bagga and I am very happy and content. Writer like Amit Aaryan and producer like Shashi Sumeet Productions – I couldn’t have been asked better for my second innings. Shweta is also doing well health wise. I just want to say thank you Mumbai”.
What kept his confidence intact in the troubled time? Mohit adds, “I am a practical human being. The entertainment industry is unpredictable. Sometimes legendary actors have also gone through a lot. I can only devote time to my craft and fitness what else I could have done. I am happy that today my talent has got the right path and I am working”.
