Set to play a protagonist in his next Hindi film, he says that finding a place in Bollywood is not so tough, but admits that sometimes it could a testing journey.

"Getting a name in Bollywood is not that difficult but sometimes it could be quite a testing journey and that's when one has to be patient and focussed. I don't see it as a struggle, but yes, I see it as something that we have to go through to evolve and to fit in rightly," Vidyut said.

Right now Vidyut is excited about his next Hindi movie which will be high on action.
