Fitness is my priority: Sharman
The actor says he has always focused on keeping a good physique and that he does not mind changing his looks for a role
From playing a young, thin college student in the 2001 hit, Style, to playing a sexy and suave man in Vishal Pandya’s upcoming erotic thriller,
Sharman Joshi (left) has changed his physique drastically. The actor says fitness is something that he has focused on since a long time. “I have always been involved in maintaining a fit physique. I am glad people have noticed how much I have worked on myself, and all the more because none of my previous films ever demanded this kind of look,” says the actor.
Emphasising the need to adapt his body to suit a particular character, Joshi, who has played diverse roles in films such as Rang De Basanti (2006), Golmaal (2006), Life In a…Metro (2007), Sorry Bhai! (2008) and 3 Idiots (2009), says, “There have been times when a particular role required me to break down into a thin person and I have worked on not looking so fit. All of this comes in a package and is part of my profession.”
Sharman has played a college student and a caring father and has also been a theatre artist. He says that experimenting with his roles has always been on his mind.
“I have consciously made an effort of mixing up the kind of projects that I take up because then it does not bore the creative artist in me. There has never been a point when I was unsure about my decision of trying something new,” says Joshi.
