‘Ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent gen­res has helped me’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Shar­man Joshi (be­low) be­lieves in break­ing stereo­types and try­ing some­thing that he has not tried be­fore. The ac­tor, who was last seen in the films such as crime thriller Wa­jah Tum Ho (2016) and erotic thriller Hate Story 3 (2015), be­lieves that the films have opened those doors for him, which he had never imag­ined.

“These films of such dif­fer­ent gen­res helped me in change the per­cep­tion of my fans and au­di­ence about me. Ever since I did these films, the roles be­ing of­fered to me now are dif­fer­ent and the kinds, which I have al­ways wanted to do. I’m glad it’s fi­nally hap­pen­ing now,” says Shar­man who has been part of many en­sem­ble films such as Rang De Bas­anti (2006), Gol­maal (2006) and 3 Id­iots (2009).

Shar­man how­ever adds that erot­ica is a genre is some­thing that he might not do again. “Even if I get a sim­i­lar of­fer as Hate Story 3, I may act in the film but won’t be di­rectly in­volved in in­ti­mate scenes. As for Wa­jah Tum Ho, the role was of a twisted cop that surely helped many peo­ple be­lieve that I could do such in­tense cin­ema too,” says Shar­man.
