Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Yashika Mathur

Ac­tor Ashish Sharma (right) be­lieves that in­tro­duc­ing im­proved special ef­fects and VFX tech­nol­ogy is turn­ing the ta­bles for the TV in­dus­try.

“Our shows were lim­ited, when it came to vis­ual ef­fects. We al­most shot with no cam­era move­ments. How­ever, now things are chang­ing and tele­vi­sion shows are tak­ing up ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy,” says Sharma, who is cur­rently play­ing the role of Ram in a mytho­log­i­cal show.

“It not only brings in more au­di­ence for the show but also changes the no­tion about TV that’s grow­ing into some­thing more pow­er­ful,” he adds.

Talk­ing about his pref­er­ence of shows, he feels it’s im­por­tant to con­nect with ev­ery char­ac­ter he plays. “I’ve grown up on lit­er­a­ture and mytho­log­i­cal sto­ries. They’ve fas­ci­nated me since child­hood and I be­lieve that ev­ery char­ac­ter that I por­tray on screen is an ex­ten­sion of my per­son­al­ity to some de­gree.”

The char­ac­ter of Ram has brought im­mense pop­u­lar­ity for the ac­tor. He says, “Once this old lady at the air­port asked me, ‘Are you Ram? Can I touch your hair? Is it real?’ and I hap­pily obliged.” ormer beauty pageant win­ner Ankita Shorey (be­low) says that she had signed the third part of the pop­u­lar fran­chise Hera Pheri last year, but is not aware when the shoot­ing for the film will start. She feels that only the pro­duc­ers would know. “I had al­ways main­tained that when­ever I will sign on the dot­ted line, I will talk about it. So yes, I have signed the con­tract last year and I am very happy that I have got my money. How­ever, I am still wait­ing for the film to go on floors and only the pro­duc­ers can tell you when is it start­ing,” Ankita said on the side­lines of an event for a jew­ellery brand.

More than a year ago, an event to launch Hera Phera 3 was held, where ac­tors like Paresh Rawal, Su­nil Shetty, John Abraham, and Ab­hishek Bachchan along with the direc­tor Neeraj Vora among oth­ers were present. Later, ac­tor Neha Sharma had con­firmed that she would be cast op­po­site John. Nar­gis Fakhri was also re­port­edly cast for the film.

Ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar, who was an in­te­gral of the previous movies, was not sup­posed to be in the film. But ac­cord­ing to re­cent re­ports, Ak­shay will be back in the film. Ankita also said, “I have started look­ing into other projects now, be­cause I was sup­posed to be launched by the film, which is get­ting de­layed.
