Rohit Shetty recalls struggle days when he had to chose between food and travel 

Rohit Shetty is one of the top most action film directors of Bollywood at the moment and these days he is celebrating the success of his recently released film 'Sooryavanshi'. The cop universe that he envisioned few years ago is also taking its shape which is another reason for Rohit to be happy. While it may seem like he's the living the dream, Rohit's life hasn't always been so perfect and he has gone through his fair share of struggles like rest of us.

During a recent conversation with Curly Tales, Rohit opened up about facing financial crisis and shared how he had to chose between travel or food in order to make ends meet with his meagre income. He said, "It was not an easy journey actually. People think that since I’m from the film industry it must have been easy for me. When I started working, I used to get just ₹35. Many times it happened that I had to choose between food and travel. Sometimes I had to miss food and sometimes travel. I also started walking on the set.”

Rohit added, "We were staying in Santa Cruz and then we shifted to Dahisar, to my grandmother’s house. Financially there were a lot of crises at that time so we didn’t have a house to stay. My grandmother used to stay in Dahisar, it was very far. Then I started walking. I used to walk from Malad to Andheri, many times. It used to take me one and a half, two hours in the sun. I know the lanes so now when I tell my driver ‘Take this route, not that’, he looks at me in the rearview mirror ‘How does he know, was he a thief before?’.”
