With the release of The White Tiger, Adarsh Gourav has got the attention every actor yearns for. "I have had people reach out and talk about the film. I am just so grateful that all this is happening. Some people who spoke with me are people I wish to work with and I am happy that they saw this film. I am hoping that I can get more opportunities to do the kind of work I want to," says Gourav.

Adarsh says that he never really thought he will be an actor but everything happened for him accidentally. "I got the audition lines and the moment I saw Balram Halwai I knew this was The White Tiger. I had read the book as a teenager. I asked them if they wanted me to read the book again and they said no. I just gave the audition and hoped that I would get to audition with Tess Joseph again," he says.
