‘My kitchen should run smoothly’
He is someone who has shown his acting prowess with every role he essays, be it in films or theatre. Many argue that Saurabh Shukla (right), who received the National Award for Jolly LLB (2013), should’ve won one years ago. But Shukla, whose acting career spans three decades, doesn’t ponder over these things.
“Who am I to think like that? A human being is never satisfied with his or her achievement ... Sky is the limit. [So] It’s better to work hard. I don’t think about anything else, though appreciation here and there does make me happy,” he says.
Shukla looks for work that satisfies his “creative soul”. And when it doesn’t, “it must help me run my kitchen smoothly,” says the actor, who won praise for his role of an investigating officer in Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Jagga Jasoos (2017). “I’m happy I’m getting good offers unlike what was coming my way some six-seven years back,” says Shukla, who, on another note, adds, “Talent will always find its place.”
