The film could not be made even after a lot of preparations

Randeep had no work for 3 years

Randeep further said, it was as if life was cut in half. For this, I had rejected the offer of Chris Hemsworth's 2020 film Extraction. I once went to the Golden Temple. I had pledged there that I would not get my hair cut until the film (Battle of Saragarhi) reached its conclusion.

After the film closed, I had no work for three years. I had gained weight, it all felt strange and I didn't know what to do. Parents were also very worried about all this. After this I accepted the offer of the film Extraction.

Bad times helped me become a better actor

Randeep told how this bad phase helped him become a better actor. He said- If I had got success early, I would not have been the actor I am today.
