But dreams, as beautiful as they are, often come hand-in-hand with challenges. For Utsav, challenges were not struggles but opportunities. Talking about his struggles utsav said, “I don’t understand the concept of Struggle. I believe if I am armed with diverse talents then I can’t be jobless. If i am not acting then I’ll do writing and if not writing then directing but i know that I am never going out of work.”
Sharing his covid experience Utsav said , “like everyone covid lockdown was tough for me also so as soon as lockdown hit I lost all my work and at that time my brother and mother were taking care of me. So thought let’s skip acting for sometime and I joined a production company as a full time employee. And that’s when I got a call for Hostel daze. I didn’t even knew that I’ll clear this audition but I did and it went so well so I am grateful.”
