There were some misses along the way as well for Patel, but the actor says it has been an interesting journey for him so far.
"Every film may not work but you learn more from those which don't work. But sometimes it is straining if you don't find roles that challenge you and then it is also about maintaining some sort of integrity. I have tried to do that. It has been an interesting journey."
Patel comes across as a really shy person but the actor says he has made his peace with the scrutiny that comes with the job.
"I don't wish to be a celebrity. I don't have a social media account. I just want to be regarded as a good actor and artiste," said Patel.
