In an interview with indianexpress.com, Sharat expressed delight for being a part of ‘Sherni’.
“I have worked with most of the directors in the film industry but have never worked with a director like Amit Masurkar before. I might say I am fortunate that I got to work with him. He is a new generation director, a new type of director. He is an unconventional filmmaker who makes a natural film. Things are not embellished, not dramatised (unlike commercial cinema). He makes a film that mirrors a normal life,” Sharat told indianexpress.com.
“I have worked in films that are highly dramatic and commercial. In commercial (Bollywood) films, there has to be songs and fight sequences right after a couple of scenes. I had worked in around 300 such films. But this is the first time when nothing of that sort was happening. This is the kind of film I always wanted to be a part of but with my kind of face, I never got the opportunity,” he expressed.
“Amit saw me, where I live. He saw me going to the gym. He decided I would be suitable for the role of Pintu in the film. He took the effort to locate me, call me, meet me and give me the role. I am indebted to him and always will be because he has put me in a different genre of films. I appreciate him. He is the kind of director who will become more and more popular in the industry henceforth,” Sharat conveyed.
