Talking about the same, Jaideep said: “I was launched by the famous Bengali producer-director Dinen Gupto in the Bengali industry but I was also keen on doing Hindi projects as Mumbai was my final destination. In 2004, I received an offer for a Hindi television show while I was shooting in Kolkata and I finally landed in Mumbai when everything was confirmed. I was finalised for a lead character but unfortunately, things went south after I got here. It was quite a disappointment and I had to go back empty-handed.” Jaideep further added: “I gathered the courage and started auditioning but post my father’s death in 2007, my responsibilities held me back. For the next 10 years, I focused on training students in the field of dramatics and theatre in my academy, Applaud, but my ‘Bombay dreams’ never died. In 2018, I realised that, ‘Ab socha hai to karna hi hai'(now I have decided so have to do it), and I started giving auditions in Mumbai again and I got my first break with Balaji’s Pavitra Bhagya
Lastly, talking about his journey, Jaideep concluded: “My journey to showbiz was full of ups and downs but I am glad that I made my way. Today, I am in a happy phase of my career. Whatever I am today is the outcome of my craft and hard work. Right now, I am enjoying essaying the role of Charan Singh in the show, Faltu.
