Rohit Saraf opened up recently about the poor performance of his film Ishq Vishk Rebound at the box office and said that he gave everything he could to his performance. Directed by Nipun Avinash Dharmadhikari, the film also stars Pashmina Roshan, Naila Grrewal, and Jibraan Khan in pivotal roles.

Speaking about it in an interview to News18, Rohit said, “I feel like I had such high expectations from myself and it came to my performance in the film because all this while I had a dream that I wanted to be a mainstream hero and I wanted to do a mainstream film. I wanted to be on the big screen and I wanted to see myself dance and all of that and so I had like massive expectation for myself. And to meet up with an expectation, I could only do one thing — that was to work tremendously hard for it, which I did. I ensured that every single day, when I entered and before I left I ensured that my director and producers were happy with what I did.”

He went on to say that he tried to give his 100 percent for the film as he added, “What I can control is that I ensure that I deliver my 100% and I think I was able to do that. I am also extremely happy and grateful that every single person who has loved my performance has reached out – specifically people from the fraternity – from critics to the media and every single person who watched it sent really heart-warming messages.”

Ever since its release on June 21, Ishq Vishk Rebound has collected over Rs 4.75 crore across the country. The film is a spiritual sequel to Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao starrer Ishq Vishk which came out in 2003.
