Sharad Kelkar who is incessantly being praised for his acting skills have played a remarkable role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Ramleela - Goliyon ki Raas leela.
Sharad Kelkar who have done some great television shows
like Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, Nach Baliye 2, Saath Phere, Uttaran and many more
speaks to Tellybuzz about his journey and experience while shooting for the film
Here's what Sharad has spoken with us...
What is your role in Ramleela?
I have played the
role of Kanjibhai who is Supriya Pathak's son and Deepika Padukone's brother. My character of Kanjibhai is that of a mafia person and is an extremely powerful
man. He has all the authority to do whatever he wishes to as he is the only son
in the family. He has various shades to his character; loving husband but at
the same time plays a high end mafia role. Kanjibhai's character is a very self-esteemed
What do you have to say about the cast and your experience with the production?
Every single scene of this movie is like you are watching a still image. Each visual is just breathtaking. Sanjay Leela Bhansali itself has such a big production house that doing just one single scene is like getting a life time achievement award (laughs). I have shot most of my scenes with Deepika and I have to say that she is so down-to-earth, grounded and don't have the star-attitude. It was just fabulous working with her.
Now that you have done good work in Bollywood, would you come back to television?
Amitabh sir aur Salman Khan jaise bade
actors television kar rahe he toh me kaun hota hu mana karne wala? No
chance that I will quit television. Nowadays, the gap between Bollywood and
Televison has faded immensely. There are so many TV actors as my co-actors in
this movie like Richa Chadda, Barkha Bisht Sengupta and Bharat and a few more. There is
no point quitting. If I get a good show and opportunity in television and if I have
the time and commitment then I will definitely do it.
What do you have to say about Sanjay Bhansali?
I think he has that amazing vision to choose actors for his films. Even the side actors of his films are mind blowing. I am grateful that I got an opportunity to work with and for a person like him who's films are recognized all over only by its name itself.
How are you feeling at the moment?
Just in one word if I had to express this emotion, I would say I am on Cloud 9. This is such a great feeling that cannot be put into words. I pray to God to give me strength to manage TV as well as Bollywood with full commitment. TV has given me name, fame and wife too (laughs).
We at Tellybuzz wish Sharad all the luck for his future endeavors!
