"Even after failures, I keep trying till I succeed in what I wish to achieve," added the actor, who opened up about his struggle with failures at a TEDx event at Goswami Ganesh Dutta Sanatan Dharma College (GGDSD) in Chandigarh.
He ventured into Bollywood in 2011 with "Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge" and gained popularity with films like "Mere Dad Ki Maruti" and "Dishoom".
Saqib, who hails from Delhi, also featured in projects like "Bombay Talkies", "Hawaa Hawaai", "Dobaara: See Your Evil" and "Race 3".
"I consider failure as a part of life and I always try to learn from my failures. It is not every time you get success. Yes, it is true everyone aims to achieve success, but failures are the first step towards success."
Looking back at his own life, he said: "I have also faced failures in life and learnt a lot from them. If you don't face failures, you will never know the value of success is what I believe. I am sure I will have such learning experiences even in my future."

What's your definition of success?
"It is just the beginning of my journey and I have a lot to achieve in life. Whatever popularity I have achieved, I am really grateful to my family and my audiences who have always encouraged me and I look forward to make them proud," added the brother of actress Huma Qureshi.
Saqib says his family is the reality check of his life.
"When I go back home my sister Huma and my parents, they correct me if they feel I am wrong. If they see something is wrong with me, they always help me to face it. They help me stay grounded and I think that is a case in everyone's life."
On the work front, the actor is busy with the shooting of web series "Rangbaaz", which also stars Ranvir Shorey and Aahana Kumra. Set against the rustic background of Gorakhpur, the show will narrate the story of a man engaging in the dark world of crime.
