He said, “I will always be thankful to my teacher, Vidya Patwardhan for introducing me to actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar when he was looking for a fresh young face for his film Tera Mera Saath Rahen. I played Ajay Devgn and Sonali Bendre’s son in the film.” Dusshyant went on to do several TV shows and films after his debut.
Having worked in both mediums, Dusshyant said, “Films and TV shows have a vast reach. But people remember your film roles more than television roles. I have acted in many TV shows, but audiences remembered me only till the show was on air. On the other hand, my role as Centimeter in 3 Idiots is remembered even today.”
Sharing his experience of working as a child actor, Dusshyant added, “I think any child, who starts working at a young age, is bound to lose his innocence and grow up faster. It has more to do with early exposure to the harsh realities of life.”
Dusshyant recently changed the spelling of his name. He added an extra ‘s’ in his spelling. When we asked him if he believed in numerology, he said, “It is like believing in horoscopes; the belief does not guarantee any positive/favourable results. At the same time, there is no harm believing in it. Moreover, I believe that all sciences are built on logic and I am open to trying new things.”
Dusshyant was last seen in the TV show Ishq Mein Marjawan. Talking about his future projects, he said, “OTT is an exciting medium now because of the pandemic. It has given opportunities to many talented actors. I have done a few historical shows and films, and would love to explore the genre.”
