Amit told IANS: "The versatile roles I have got to play with Balaji Telefilms are all Ekta's brainchild. When I worked for other production houses, I realised how comfortable I am with with Ekta and Balaji (Telefilms).
"They perfectly know how to get the best out of me. For this new show as well, they scripted a character with amazing positive and negative shades. I feel honored to be backed by her."
TV czarina Ekta played a huge hand in Amit's career as she handed him his acting break on the small screen with 'Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai', followed by 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'. Amit had a lean phase in between, but again it was Ekta who offered him a chance to bounce back with crucial role in 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein'.
He considers himself "extremely lucky to get substantial amount of work all these years".
"I know of numerous individuals -- far more talented -- who haven't received work like how I have got. I have no regrets or complaints and consider myself fortunate to have worked with such renowned production houses," added Amit, a former 'Indian Idol' contestant.
