His stunning performance in Kai Po Che! and Guddu Rangeela, was much appreciated and he became one of the promising actor in the industry. It was then, he appeared with Salman Khan in Sultan. Audience just loved him for that role which was effectual.

People with Amit’s talent and tenacity, often make it big and establish themselves in the industry, even if it takes some time. However, life hasn’t always been that easy for Amit. He worked at many places without any second thought.
- He Washed Dishes & Worked As A Security Guard
Much before he made his television debut, Amit Sadh worked as a security guard. There was also a point of time when he used to wash utensils to earn bread and butter. The actor revealed that he has been seeing a tough time since from a very young age and is now almost immune to anything that life has to throw at him.
Immediately after moving to Mumbai, Amit Sadh found it really difficult to find any work that would allow him to sustain. This was the time that he started taking up odd jobs. Things were so bad that at one point in time, he was homeless and had to live on the footpath because he had nowhere else to go.
- Started Off In Television Before Moving To Films
Likewise many popular actors , Amit too started off acting in a television soap opera . Following that, Amit acted in a number of shows, from 2002, till 2007. During this time, he also participated in the first season of Nach Baliye, Bigg Boss, and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi.
- Had No Work After Kai Po Che!
After making his Bollywood debut in 2010, Amit again found himself with his back against the wall. In Phoonk 2 he had a minor character which almost went unnoticed. He eventually landed Kai Po Che! Which earned him, along with his co-stars, Sushant Singh Rajput, & Rajkummar Rao, great reviews. The film worked wonderfully, commercially as well. Things started to look good for the three lads, especially Amit. However, much to his surprise, people simply did not offer him any films, or any roles for that matter.
- People Deliberately Refused To Offer Him Films
Things for some surprising reason were so bad, that people went out of their way to not offer him roles. In an interview, Amit said, “I will be honest, and I have no shame in saying that after Kai Po Che!, I did not get chances. Some people didn’t understand what to give me, and some people went out of the way to not give me work. Now they call me and apologise, but there have been people who said, ‘We didn’t like you then, but we like you now.’”
After playing short characters in few movies , when Amit acted alongside Salman Khan in Sultan, things started getting much positive. Ever since that film, he has been a part of some really fine films, that exceptionally well at the box office, and were critically acclaimed. These films include the likes of Sarkar 3, Gold, Akira and Super 30.
Next big project for Amit is the movie , Shakuntala Devi, where Vidya Balan is in the lead role .
