Durgesh said, “A friend of mine who worked at Mukesh Chhabra’s casting agency called me to audition for PK, but later he informed me that I was not selected for the film. He then told me that I bagged a role in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway. It was a 45-day schedule from Gurgaon to Jammu and Kashmir. That time I took a 45-day leave from the repertory. Because of the rules, I was thrown out of the repertory. I felt very bad that time. It was a low point for me.”

He shared more about his journey, saying, “There was a time when my father had a brain hemorrhage, and at the same time I was getting calls to do Panchayat season two, Bhakshak, and Laapataa Ladies. I shot Bhakshak while I was in Darbhanga. I would travel to Lucknow by train to shoot and return home. I told my brother that I would not do Laapataa Ladies since my father was not well, but he told me that it’s an Aamir Khan production, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so to do it. My brother assured me that he would look after my father, and that’s when I did Laapataa Ladies.”
