‘Bigg Boss 8′ winner Gautam Gulati made his Bollywood debut with Balaji Motion Pictures’ ‘Azhar’ which released in 2016. It was based on the life of former captain of the Indian cricket team, Mohammad Azharuddin. Gautam played cricketer-turned-commentator Ravish, modelled on cricketer/commentator Ravi Shastri.
We recently had a video interview where Gautam spoke about his upcoming film ‘Radhe’, working with Salman Khan, breaking his contract with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and more.
Recalling his past, Gautam said, “I had signed a three-movie deal with Balaji Motion Pictures. But then some scenes were edited according to the characters (He was referring to ‘Azhar’). There were many changes at that time. It also depends on the director. I don’t want to blame anyone as it is my past. Then there were two movies that didn’t start. But it’s ok. People should move on. But in future, if I ever get a good script from Balaji Motion Pictures, then, of course, I would love to get back and start working more professionally. I will read everything carefully and then sign so that scenes are not chopped”.

Gautam said that now he has a manager who is from Salman Khan’s talent team and he looks after all the paper works of Gautam. He said that earlier he was a newcomer and had no such idea as to how things work in the industry. But now, he is more aware of all these and more careful. He believes in making things clear before signing any contract.
