Speaking to mediapersons, Sangay says that this happened due to “pure luck”, and attributed it to hard work.
Sangay, who believes in the motto of ‘hard work’ went to India with a small hope to meet Salman Khan, and after waiting for hours, managed to meet his idol during a shoot.
According to Sangay, they had a conversation which led to the film star casting him in his movie.
“Honestly, I did not get this opportunity based on talent or skills. It was because I was fortunate and lucky I got to meet him. I sensed that he liked me and saw something in me and provided me with the opportunity. A lot of people may think I would have just a tiny role to play in the movie but no. I have a very important or pivotal role to play in it. I will be seen in the movie for the entire duration. I cannot reveal the role right now because I am bound by the contract where I am not allowed to share anything”.
Prior to the fan meeting, he was already collaborating with smaller Bollywood industries and even made the first-ever Indo-Bhutan film titled “Singye”.
His passion and interest to get into Bollywood further grew after interacting with people from Bollywood.
He also added that he wants to prove to the entire nation and India through hard work, consistency and dedication and make Bhutan proud.
“I have to work hard and prove worthy of getting to play in such a huge movie. I think If I do well in the movie, a lot of other doors will also be opened to the Bhutanese as 1.3 billion people in India will appreciate the Bhutanese,” he added.
He said the Bhutanese can look forward to highly stacked action-packed drama scenes from the movie. Currently, he is in Mumbai, and is shooting for the movie, which will be released next year.
