In some of his interviews, Shreyas had unfolded his experiences in the film industry and how he chased his passion.

“I grew up in a middle-class Marathi family. As a child, I was intrigued by movies and plays. I remember the time when I went to watch a theatre play. I was so fascinated by it, and it left a deep impact on me. The dream of becoming an actor was sown inside my heart. Eventually, that dream started growing and I started performing in various plays in school and college. To polish my acting skills and learn more, I joined theatre.” says Shreyas.

Upon further questioning, he even stated that initially when he told friends about his dream of becoming an actor they laughed at him. However, that laughter didn’t make him breakdown instead he becomes more focused on his dreams. He always wanted to do something on his own and decided to stay away from all the negativity that pulls him down.

At the beginning of the journey into the film industry was very critical. He said- “I would stand in long queues for hours to audition and keep visiting various studios only to get a ‘no’ from directors and producers. There were times when I was selected for a particular role but after a few days, they would call me to tell me that they need a popular face and deny me. It was so heartbreaking but I always took it up as a challenge and work harder.”

But he didn’t give up. A point even came into his life where he was fully devastated.

Somehow after all the struggles, density took a turn! He got opportunities from television serials and slowly from films.

The actor said- “I made the best use of all the opportunities and gave my best. Then Dor and Iqbal happened and I started getting praised by all those people who once criticized my dream.”

Everyone can fulfill their dream. One needs to have trust in themselves.
