Sameer Dharmadhikari, who is best known for playing Raj in Rajshri Productions' Yahan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli on Zee TV, is all set to be seen on television soon with a different character in Mahabharat and Buddha, spared time to answer our slam book questions…
Nickname:Few old pals call me Sam.
Describe yourself:Naam hin kafi hai (laughs).
Strengths:Myself and my whole family.
What can easily impress you:Truth.
Hobbies:Listening music, playing sports especially cricket and acting.
A cloud 9 moment for you:When I was nominated for a new comer award when I played the lead in my first movie Satta directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. The next cloud 9 moment for me was when my first daughter was born. Now, I am waiting for a lot of cloud 9 moments to come (laughs).
Do you believe in destiny:Yes, I do! Destiny is there and it works as a catalyst. You have to work hard.
Song you're humming these days:Tum hin hofrom Ashiqui 2.
Any TV show you follow:Not really but I was following a Marathi show Uncha Majha Jhoka…
An unforgettable day of your life:The day I was born; no one can forget it (laughs).
Describe your daily routine in short:Whenever I am shooting, I wake up at 6, freshen up, read the newspapers, have my breakfast, workout for some time, and after a quick chat with my wife I rush for my shoot. Now a days, I am shooting for Buddha at Filmcity which is close to my house so I go home to have lunch. I pack up at 9, go back to my home and then it is off to sleep. This cycle goes on every day.
What's your favorite pass time during your free time on the sets:I listen to some music and luckily, my home is so nearby to my sets these days that I go home to relax.
Craziest fan encounter so far:I have some of the crazy and lovely fans who have loved our characters and our work. I don't have an account on Facebook because I don't get time socially. One crazy fan of mine posted some really good and unknown pictures of mine. He/she has added all my details in that account but he/she never does any offensive act. This is something crazy.
Best compliment ever received:Moochein bahut achchi lagti hai aap pe (laughs).
Your inspiration:There have been a lot of people who have inspired me in my life, whether in my college life or in my professional life. One of them is Anil Kumar, who was the CEO of Voltas Company and I was working under him. He was an inspiration for me. Then people like Ratan Tata, actors - Sanjeev Kumar, Govinda and Amitabh Bachchan, Johny Depp and many other actors also inspire me.
You're incomplete without:My wife, Aparna!
Message to your fans:They are all fantastic. We actors are nothing without you all. They have waited for me. Even the non-Hindi speaking people remember my dialogues better than me. I thank them for watching my work and being such fantastic fans.
