Actor Ankit Rathi’s new Bollywood film Bolo Hau is in theatres now. Bolo Hau is a love story of
Salman and Rukhsar. Ankit is very excited about his new project. The actor was last seen in
Farhan Akhtar 3 Storeys which was also his debut film. His character Sohail in 3 storeys was
immensely appreciated by the critics.
Talking about his new release, the actor says that it was initially a bit difficult for him to get used
to the Hyderabadi lingo, but visiting Hyderabad a week prior before the shoot really helped him
understand the language, culture and get used to the language. Ankit says he enjoyed shooting
Bolo Hau in Hyderabad “ Everything about Hyderabad is so unique, be it the language, food or
the people, one cannot help but fall in love with the city”. The film is directed by Tarun
Dhanrajgir and his daughter Jahanvi Dhanrajgir is the main lead opposite Ankit Rathi.
Ankit comes from Raipur, Chhattisgarh. He did his schooling from Maharishi Vidya Mandir and
after completing his studies he moved to Bombay in order to chase his dreams. Ankit has
always wanted to act in films, right from his childhood. He’s a big SRK fan and Sharukh khan
movies were something that inspired him to see himself on the big screen. His love for acting
and cinema took him to Mumbai in the year 2012. He soon started taking different workshops in
order to work on his craft. Ankit says, training is an important part of any art form, and I wanted
to understand the craft before actually auditioning for roles. Soon after, he started auditioning
and he got his first ad film for Cadbury Dairy Milk, where he was playing a Sachin Fan! The ad
was an instant hit of the season and helped Ankit feature in many other ad films.
His first movie break was with Fukrey, where he did a small cameo with Ali Faizal. “Ali Faizal
has been very encouraging. We used to have conversations on set and he never made me feel
like an outsider even for once” says Ankit. Ankit’s next big project was in the film Singham
Returns. He was just 20 when he became a part of Rohit Shetty’s huge set. “ While working with
actors like Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor Khan I realised how much passion and hardwork
goes behind playing a character in a movie. These actors are very hardworking and there’s a lot
of effort that goes behind the perfection we see on screen” says Ankit.
Ankit’s first big break is Excel Entertainment’s 3 Storeys which also became his debut film. His
performance in the film was highly appreciated by the critics. 3 storeys is a thriller starring some
excellent actors like Richa Chadha, Renuka Sahane and Sharman Joshi. The film has a very
unique screenplay with some beautiful songs which captures the emotions of the characters.
One of the songs named Azadiya features Ankit with his lady love in the film. The song is quite
popular among the youth.
Although Ankit has done some significant projects in Bollywood, it has not been an easy sailing
for him. Not coming from a filmy background, Ankit had to make his own way up in the industry.
However he says he has no complaints. He believes being your own guide, adds up to the
personality. “ Being from a non-filmy background, my journey was full of ups and downs but I
am happy to say that I’ve had a great time sailing through it “ After 3 Storeys, Bolo Hau is going to be Ankit’s next bollywood project. The film was released on the 15th of January and is getting immense love from the audience.
Ankit plays Salman in the film, who is madly in love and knows no boundaries. The film has a Hyderabadi tadka which makes people smile. The film has got all flavours like Romance, Love, Action, Comedy which
makes it a complete family entertainer. It’s a treat to watch Ankit dancing on screen. We can
soon get to see Ankit Rathi in his upcoming web series, the name is yet to be disclosed.
