"I have done 170 Bhojpuri films. I have played solo hero in all my Bhojpuri films. But in Hindi, I needed to prove all my aspects and this is the right time... 'Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal' is that film," the 41-year-old said here in an interview.
"I have been in Bhojpuri cinema for more than 20 years. My fans always waited for me to make a kind of correct entry into Bollywood. Now after 20 years I have got such a film," he added. His role in the film, coming out Sep 7, is a complete package.
"All my fans will be happy to see me in a wholesome role, where I will be seen doing action, romance and will cry too. So I have got the correct cinema and that's why I am promoting it so much," Ravi said.
