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.”
