    The actor says he is aware the industry is a tricky place to be in and adds that he has inherited the qualities of being professional and respecting other's time from his mother. "Being in the industry is not easy. You don't have your next job. You don't know if you are going to get paid next year. Everybody is out there to prove themselves and you have to focus on yourself. Minding your business is probably the toughest business, in this business."

    Talking about Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota's journey, Abhimanyu Dassani said, "The journey has been fantastic. To look back and think, this was the film which shifted producers, a film which wasn't supposed to be made four days before the shoot and then looking at people giving us standing ovation across festivals, it's surreal, humbling and encouraging."
