Sharman Can’t Afford to be Choosy

Though, Sharman Joshi has many times proved his acting skills by paying variety of roles but the actor still feels that he can’t afford to be choosy until he turned to be director and directs film as per his genre.

The actor will be seen in next as a criminal from a slum in debutant actor-director Faruk Kabir’s ” Allah Ke Banday. Sharman expressed his thoughts,

“I don’t have the privilege to plan what film I want to do. I am really at the mercy of what I am offered by writers and directors. But if I ever turn into a director, then I would choose the genre I want to work in.”

Talking about his latest, Allah Ke Banday, he said,

“I generally like to rely on my impulse and vision of the director. So I didn’t spend time in the slums.”

“I wanted to rely on my instincts; so I didn’t interact closely with any kid from the juvenile prisons because I didn’t feel the need.”

He heard the script three years ago and was bowled over. The 31-year-old, Sharman said,

“The idea was narrated to me three years back. I found it quite interesting. Faruk and me live in the same building actually. He took around six months to develop the story and the screenplay. Then he took time to cast other characters. It took a-year-and-a-half to prepare before starting the film,”

Releasing Oct 22, “Allah Ke Banday” also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Atul Kulkarni.
