Very few people have the courage to leave an established successful career and add a new color to their dreams. One such rare artist is Nandish Singh Sandhu. Nandish, famous in every household as Veer Singh Bundela in the serial Uttaran, left his successful innings in TV and turned to films to give a new flight to his acting career. His hard work paid off. After films like 'Super 30' and 'Family of Thakurganj', Nandish remained in the news for his acting in serials like 'Jubilee' and 'Undekhi'.

I learned not to be afraid of failure

How difficult was the decision to leave a successful career in TV and start afresh in films? On this Nandish says, 'It was definitely a difficult decision. When I was doing TV, I was living a comfortable life, I was earning a regular income, it was difficult to decide to leave all that and improve my craft, but I am glad that I took that decision. If I had not done it, I would have regretted that I did not try and I do not want that. That is why whatever I feel like doing, I definitely try for it. Even if I do not succeed in it, but at the last moment when I get a flashback, I should not regret that I did not try due to fear of failure. By the way, if it was possible that I could try for films while doing TV shows, I would have done both the things simultaneously, but in our industry it is not so that you can do films while doing TV. If you are a TV actor, then there is a thought that if he is doing TV, then it should have a set pattern or he will not have time. It happens, when you are shooting for 25 days, when will you work on yourself? There is no time for anything in daily soaps, so I was not growing at all, that's why I had to take a break from TV.

Playing a negative role for the first time was challenging

Nandish was highly praised in Vikramaditya Motwane's web series Jubilee, but his screen space was very less. Regarding this, Nandish says, 'I knew from the beginning that my character was small, but he was the center of the entire show. Whatever is happening in the story is happening because of Jamshed, so I knew that it would affect people. However, I did not expect that he would be liked so much. On the other hand, if we talk about Andhi, my character Samarth joins the second season. The challenge for me was that since the rest of the characters of the show had already received a lot of love, there was a little fear whether people would accept this character or not, but it also got a lot of love. I became a part of it without disturbing the rhythm of the story. Another challenge for me was that I was playing a negative character for the first time. I had not done a negative role before and all the characters of Andhi are negative. In such a situation, how can they be more negative than him? That aspect was also challenging, I thought a lot about it.

You will find the right partner at the right time

Did the decision of leaving his established career in TV affect Nandish's personal life, relationships, marriage? When asked this, he said, 'Not at all. My family and parents fully support my decision. My close friends are still close. My family is with me.' But does Nandish feel the lack of a partner in life (after his separation from Rashami Desai)? To this, he says, 'I am happy with myself. I am happy in my life. I feel complete. I believe that at the right time, you will definitely find the right partner. I don't want to run after him.'
