The popular host of several successful television shows, Rithvik Dhanjani has made a strong mark in the industry with his solid body of work. The actor rose to fame with his stint in Ekta Kapoor's show Pavitra Rishta. Apart from that, he was seen as a host in numerous shows like India’s Next Superstars, Super Dancer, India’s Best Dramebaaz, and So You Think You Can Dance where he entertained the viewers holistically. Now, in a recent chat show, the actor has opened up on his challenges and family pressures the faced before getting into showbiz.
While talking about that, he revealed that it was his father’s orthodox thinking which was the toughest hurdle. He said, "My father worked on his business for almost 20-25 years up until then, and with all his right, he had the right to think that my son is going to take up my business ahead. But I wasn't cut out for it, I couldn't do it. We had two days off at school, Thursday and Friday, my father made me sit at the shop every Friday to learn the job and told me that I have to do this in the future".
“I had to sit on the shop unwillingly on my holidays and only I know how painful it was for me, I used to hate it," he added.
The actor further mentioned, “I have immense respect for my father because I have no idea how my father did it. I can never do it. My father has struggled a lot because from 365 days he used to work 364 days and he managed everything."
