Satyajeet Dubey Shares How Late Actor Sameer Sharma Helped Him Kickstart His Acting Career

Maharaj Ki Jai Ho star Satyajeet Dubey says he will always be indebted to late actor Samir Sharma for tipping him off about a role in the early phase of his career. Satyajeet has tweeted of the day when an encounter with Samir, that helped him bag an acting project. Satyajeet shared, “I had bumped into him once at this bookstore that used to be in infinity mall called Landmark, I was 18, new in Mumbai. I recognised him from his television work. He smiled and I said ‘hi sir’ He asked me ‘are you an actor?’ I said ‘yes’. Then he replied saying ‘there’s a tv production house called SphereOrigins across the road, they’re looking for a young boy like you for a TV show, why don’t you go and test for it?’ I said ‘thank you, i must’ & he said ‘all the best, hope you get it’ and we both went our ways,”. He further added, “I immediately crossed the road, met the casting director, auditioned and got the part. It was nothing big, a 6-day job and I got paid 18k but back then it was a big deal for me. It helped me sustain for one more month.. thanks to Sameer.” Satyajeet described Samir as a “kind” and “gentle” person. Samir was found hanging on Wednesday night from the kitchen ceiling of his Mumbai residence. Expressing his grief over Samir’s death, Satyajeet wrote:” Today when I read about his passin away, all the memories, small little details of that brief meeting with Sameer that was lost in some corner of my memry re-emerged. That’s the beauty of people like Sameer, they touch you with their kindness and sensitivity. Thank you for makin my life better with your existence.”
