In a recent interview, the dapper and suave TV star Sharad Malhotra says had personal loss, but 2020 was good work wise.
He has won the hearts of his fans and audiences repeatedly with his stellar performances on telly right from Rishi in Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki (Colors TV, 2017) to Raunak in Muskaan (Star Bharat, 2018 – 2019) and now followed by the ace portrayal of multi layered Ichchadhari cheel Veeranshu Singhania in recently concluded Naagin 5 (Colors TV). In one of his interviews, Sharad Malhotra says had personal loss, but 2020 was good work wise.
In that interview, Sharad had said, “Bidding goodbye to anything is heartbreaking”. He also told, “The kind of love, appreciation and warmth I’ve received in the last six months has been overwhelming. There is so much gratitude I have. I want to thank so many people — my fans, viewers, Ekta (Kapoor) ma’am, the production, my cast and co-stars”.
Sharing the experience of working in past six months in the interview, Sharad shared, “Yes, it was the year of the pandemic, but professionally, it was fantastic for me. Personally, I had a few losses and setbacks, but I think 2020 has been great, and 2021 has started on a great note, too. But saying goodbye is not great, it brings back memories we had with the cast, all the fun we had on set. Veeranshu Singhania (his character on the show) will always be a part of me”.
He also went on to add that it was a “great experience for him to be a part of the supernatural and fantasy genre”. Explaining this point, he said, “We got to do stuff that we don’t get to do in real life — jumping and kicking and all of that. I feel the content needs to be really good, that is something which people look forward to. Gone are the days that you can show anything to them. I think people now want to see good stories, comedy, action — everything. In the time you have for your show, you have to make it interesting. It’s like watching a film in a shorter span of time. If given an opportunity, I’d like to do something like this again”.
