I’ve alternate sources of income, but I won’t call them my plan ‘B’: Avinash Mukherjee
Avinash Mukherjee is very strict when it comes to his plan ‘B’ or alternate career option. He reveals he is strictly against such opinion because having an alternate source of income doesn’t mean you have an alternate career option as well. He says he has alternate sources of income but that’s not his plan ‘B’, because he doesn’t believe in one.
“When an actor has an alternate source of income, people have different opinion about it and they call it plan B. But I am strictly against that. I am an actor myself and have been blessed to receive so much love for my work. And I keep trying to get better everyday to improve myself. But I also need to know that I have an alternate source of income, which supports my career,” he said.
“So, I don’t have a plan B, I have a plan A and a plan A1, A2 and A3 instead. So plan A is like core of the planet and A1, A2, A3 surrounds it and it all goes back to that plan A. I just have that plan A and rest every other activity supports that because when you have additional income source you don’t take choices based on money, you make choices based on creativity,” Avinash added.
The actor is best know for his portrayal as young Jagiya in “Balika Vadhu”. He even wrote a book titled, “Weight Loss: The 4 Golden Ayurvedic Sutras”, where he talks about his weight loss journey from 86kgs to 70kgs.
He further shared details of his alternate source of income he said, “I am doing a couple of businesses. I have a digital marketing agency and I am trying to get into gaming and app business now. I have a book and I had a product too on Amazon. They were water bottles of premium quality, but I stopped it because I was importing those from China.”
