Adarsh Gourav made the critics and audience sit back and take notice of his acting skills and effortlessness in Netflix's The White Tiger. He stood tall with Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao in his debut film and ensured that people took him seriously. In a short span of time, Adarsh has bagged an international anthology and a big-ticket Bollywood film. Due to this, people feel he is the next successful import from India to the West after Dev Patel.
Reacting to being called the next Dev Patel and all the comparisons between them, Adarsh, in PeepingMoon's Best Of 2021 segment, told, "I am not really focused on those things. I am just trying to think about what my next more interesting character is and how I am going to prep for that. I get nervous and excited during my prep. I am still trying to figure out a lot of things about myself and how I would achieve becoming a character in every project. Sometimes it is really far from who you are."
He further shared, "Comparing me to Dev Patel is crazy. He is a highly experienced actor and has a vast body of work behind him and I have just done one film. I don’t pay attention."
