Mumbai, the financial capital of India, is called the city of dreams, and looking at how the city has transformed people from rags to riches surely justifies the tags. In a country of 1.2 billion people, making a way in the film industry is, indeed, not an easy job. Thousands of aspirants, with dreams in their eyes, come to Mumbai daily to pursue their career in film and, needless to say, only a few of them can actually reach their desired place while remaining of them keep struggling for years.


Popular television star Ankit Narang, who was recently featured in T.V. show Divya Srishti, says “It is expensive to live in a city like Mumbai and moreover when you are struggling as u really have to put your expenses at correct places and not waste money partying. There is saying in Gujarati which says, ‘Mumbai me khana to aapko miljayega, Rehna nahi mil payega (In Mumbai, you will, however, get to eat but hardly will get to accommodate yourself)’. Accommodation is really expensive here and so is traveling.”

Ankit Narang has been through his tough times at the beginning of his career when he had to return to his home to help his father in his family business and come back with new energy and to work on 2-3 projects at a time.

30 years old Television actor Ankit, who got his fame and popularity from his much popular television show Pavitra Rishta, will be seen in an upcoming web series where he will be playing the character of a college student.
