Model turned actor Sammir Dattani , who will be seen in this week's release 'Corporate', feels modelling is a stepping-stone to the acting career in films.

"It can not be called a back door entry, but the modelling experience does help. How else do you get into films?" Sammir asks.



Dattani, who makes his appearance as an executive in Madhur Bhandarkar's film Corporate , says he loves films as he feels that people come to the industry from varied backgrounds like ramps, music videos, television, theatre and so on.

"The industry lets you open your own door. There are no fixed rules as such."

Sammir says he knew he wanted to do films as early as in the first year of college. He made his portfolio, which led to 6-7 music videos and 12 commercials.

He made his debut with Rajshri Productions film titled, 'Uff Kya Jaadu Mohabbat Hai', in which he was paired opposite another debutante Pooja. The film did not do well though.

His second film was Pyaar Mein Twist starring Rishi Kapoor , Dimple Kapadia , Soha Ali Khan and himself.

Sammir's forthcoming film is Mukhbir in which he is paired opposite Raima Sen . The film is made by Mani Shankar.
