Everyone goes through that phase. We all need to put in our best every day. I am an electronic engineer. If I'd have gone ahead with that I'm sure in that field also I have gone through the struggle. Mashallah, I'm grateful to my lord for everything he has bestowed on me including the struggles. I never thought that I could be in this field of entertainment. But I knew one thing, if I do it, I'll do it with all my heart.

The actor is also grateful for the kind of change that the entertainment industry has seen over the years and feels it is at a better place today. "Since the time I have started working as an actor, I have been watching other shows as much as possible to understand a pattern that is being followed and to know what the audience likes. One major change is the budget being increased now. Lavish setups, movie cameras, and technicians have been brought in. Much better VFX are being used. Obviously then, there are web series with an even higher budget."

The actor is very satisfied with his career has shaped up. "I have been working with Star for 5 years now, starting from Nisha Aur Uske Cousins to Dreamgirl to Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata. A big hug to everyone who has been watching these shows. When people come up and tell you about a particular scene they liked or of the character itself being liked by their family members. I feel great knowing that there are people from all age groups who are relating to this shows," a grateful Mohsin concludes.
