‘There is a lot of work available now’

Actor Mahesh Thakur says that while the television industry is witnessing a lot of fresh blood, most newcomers are not taken in for their talent but because they have free time.

“Most actors who are new are not taken because they are talented. If they have 25 days in a month free, they are taken. There is just a lot of work available now, and one is not really on the lookout for talent,” Mahesh says. The actor is currently seen on Sahara One’s Ghar Aja Pardesi.
