      Ronit Roy who turned 56 today (October 11) recently opened up about his decades-long career in showbiz.

      Calling the show a turning point in his life, he said, "2001 was a turning year for me. I starred in their show titled Kamal, then came Kasautii Zindagi Kay and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. That was like big wave for television. I consider myself lucky to have caught it. Kasautii was a turning point in my career."

      Ronit revealed that before turning to films he also tried working in advertising. Talking about his debut he said, Jaan Tere Naam was a silver jubilee, which meant a Rs 100-150 crore film, in today's time. "It is natural to get lot of offers, lot of films after a debut that ran so long in the theaters. Unfortunately, for me, I did not get even a single call for 3 months."

      "I made wrong choices and ended up having no films for several years. It was in the early 2000s when I came back with Balaji Telefilms. And 2010, I came back to cinema with Udaan. So, it's been a journey," he added.

      Apart from TV and films, Ronit has also garnered fame with several OTT releases and is set to be part of Spotify's ACP Gautam, a 10-episode podcast, which is a crime-thriller that revolves around a police officer and his interesting cases.

      However, Ronit said he has much more to explore. "I like this quote I heard years back - Abhi parinde me jaan baaki hai, abhi udaan baaki hai. Challenges are there. I am not young anymore. Work I am doing has become demanding. There are physical and emotional demands that I need to meet. I push myself for it. As an actor, every role has been done several times, but there is a challenge to do it differently every time."
