Today, Amit Sadh is an accomplished Indian actor who has won people’s hearts with his versatility and powerful performances.

Amit Sadh revealed that before he became an actor, he was working as a security guard and a house help in posh localities in Delhi. Indian Express quoted him saying:
“I was a security guard at the Benetton showroom in Delhi. Whenever I look at myself in the mirror, I remind myself of where I came from. When people ask me why I’m kind to everyone, I tell them that for me, everybody is the most powerful human being in the world. If a security guard can talk like this, think like this, be like this, anybody can.”
He further revealed that he used to pay Rs 25 to be able to sleep inside the Jor Bagh community centre at night.
“I joke that I always had good taste, even when I was on the footpath. I used to work at Jor Bagh, and for Rs 25 per night, you’d get to sleep at the Jor Bagh community centre. Even when I was on the footpath, I was staying at Delhi’s most expensive neighbourhood.”
Such challenging experiences have taught him the importance of being empathetic and compassionate towards others.
“This is why I don’t like talking about myself. The day you understand empathy and compassion, your life changes. Our experiences, where we come from, they mould us, they make us who we are. You should never forget where you come from.”
