Gautam Gulati was a popular face on television but he rose to fame post his stint in ‘Bigg Boss 8’. But after he won the show, nobody offered him a helping hand in the industry. He was not happy with the films he was doing. When he told Salman Khan about it, he offered him work.
Gautam told NBT, “Nobody offered me a helping hand when I won ‘Bigg Boss’ five years ago. I can never forget the day when Ekta Kapoor offered me a three-film deal. However, my role in the very first film was cut. I kept calling the concerned persons but in vain. After that, I had no other option but to break the contract with Balaji (Motion Pictures).”
He further said that artistes are left heartbroken when someone cheats at work. “I was not concerned about the money but I wanted to do a good job. The makers should take care of young actors and outsiders. Salman Khan has trusted my talent. As an outsider, now I feel that there is a helping hand and that is of Salman Khan,” he said.
Gautam said when he told Salman Khan about his situation, he immediately asked Gautam to work with him. He said, “I couldn’t believe my ears at that moment. I asked him again and he said – yes, of course, take my number. Within the next four days, I was introduced to his team. I will always be grateful for this. Bollywood bigwigs should support young talents just like Salman Khan did.”
Gautam will be seen in Salman’s ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ that also has Disha Patani and Randeep Hooda.
