Actor and former model Arjun Rampal agrees that modelling did get him noticed, but he thinks his hard work is what got him far.
In an interview he did mention that modeling is what got him where he is to begin with "Yeah, because I think it got me noticed to a certain degree. But finally, I credit more to all the people, who I have worked with and to where I have reached today in this industry."
He also says that people he worked with helped a lot.
"I have reached the film industry because the kind of people I have worked with. The actors, directors, producers have constantly had faith in me and have given me chances after chances to evolve, grow and to get into a position...I am just grateful that I am here (in Bollywood)," he added.
He loves his journey so far, as he says "Very well. In fact, look back at it and say 'I am so grateful that I am at this position, where I am working with some of the top talents with some of the top directors and producers in some of the most awaited films," said the National Award winner.
In terms of thriller, and their evolution: "Oh for sure and definitely. I think suspense thrillers anywhere in the world you see them there are very few that come and hit home...You can make a lot of suspense thrillers, but there are really few that you can remember and 'Kahaani' was one of them from what I have seen the other one would be 'Kahaani 2'," he said.
