“It was difficult to plan this journey because Mumbai is too crowded. When I came to the city, I had a ₹100 note in my pocket. I was clueless about what to do next and where to go. I faced a lot of hardships. The first night that I spent in a house in Mumbai was in a pharmaceutical factory and there was a strong stench. The space was so small that it was just barely enough for me to lay down. I managed to spread a mat…There was a time I had to stay hungry as I didn’t have money.”

He added,

“After struggling, I worked at an MNC but left the job one day. I had a very good salary and had a luxurious lifestyle. But I left it thinking, ‘No, I want to be an actor. I came back to square one. I had bought a big house and invested all my funds from gratuity and provident funds into my home loan. I had to sell my car as I didn’t have money to pay EMI. I tried to commute to the Mumbai local for traveling 25 km for auditions but couldn’t get into it as I had gotten used to a luxurious lifestyle. I started walking 50 km daily, from here to Andheri and back. It was extremely difficult.”

Saxenaji is one of the most favorite characters in the iconic show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain. Saanand Verma has also worked in movies like Raid, Pataakha, and Chhichhore.
