“I wanted to be an airforce pilot, destiny made me an actor”: Avinash Sachdev
&TV’s new fiction show in the romantic drama space, Main Bhi Ardhangini, an unusual love story, has made fans excited to see the leads Avinash Sachdev, Anjali Priya and Aditi Rawat in the show. Recently Avinash made an interesting and unique revelation – that he always wanted to be an air force pilot! During one’s childhood and growing up years right till college, one always aspires to pursue a certain profession that excites them. The lead of the show Avinash always wished to serve the country in the capacity of being an air force pilot. Infact, his father even wished for Avinash to be an IPS officer.
Avinash who has made his mark as a brilliant actor and has had a good run on television featuring in most of the popular shows, wanted to secure admission at the Army School in Nashik to train to be an air force pilot. However, the actor didn’t pass the Eye Test due to his low vision and having spectacles. Not losing hope, the actor looked ahead, vetted his options and chanced upon a career in modelling and acting.
During one of his voyages to Ladakh, he stopped by an Army canteen and saw pictures and messages written on small notes and stickers. The actor was so inspired to see them that he left a message there too. Avinash on his experience at the canteen shares that, “It really motivated me to write a small note besides the other notes and stickers that had messages written on them for the people who visited the canteen. I wrote a note to the nation that I hope I get to serve the country and armed forces in my next birth be it in the air, navy or army force. It gives me immense happiness to see young children pursue education to join the armed forces and secure our nation from all the external evils that cause harm. My trip to Ladakh and the stopover at the canteen was very liberating as it gave me a chance to make a promise to Mother India.”
