Actor Hitanshu Jinsi, who was seen in “Sacred Games” (season 1), lost his father at the age of 13. He said that the hardship he saw in his growing-up years has made him more caring and understanding.
“Whatever has happened to me over these years has definitely made me more experienced in life. I think I have had so many hardships since childhood that I have become empathetic toward others’ sadness. I have become more compassionate over time,” he shared.
The young actor tries to find joy in little things in life and confessed that his idea of happiness is “feeding dogs, helping someone in need, kissing and hugging my mother, performing on stage, traveling, and visiting temples.”
“Happiness for me is seeing a happy world around me. Happiness is the cure for many diseases like depression. My mother was in depression for a long time. She still hasn’t come out of it fully. So I make sure she is happy. I also have mood swings because even I am a human being, I make sure it doesn’t affect anyone around me. I stay alone when I am not happy or confused,” he added.
Hitanshu calls himself an extrovert and an introvert, both, and revealed that his personality depends on the company he is in. “When I meet someone I find it a little difficult to strike up a conversation. And I don’t open up with everyone easily. But if I am vibing with someone then I might open up early than usual,” he said.
Do you have something that lifts up your mood instantly? “Listening to 90’s Bollywood songs mostly that of Shahrukh and Salman Khan. I feel so happy that I start singing and lip-syncing the song and imagine myself performing in front of the mirror. The second thing I do to make myself happy is be around dogs. I just play with them, feed them and talk to them and try to listen to what they say and respond,” he concluded.
