Sharman Joshi comes out of hiding to speak about his new film and why he detests the herd mentality
Shaheen Parkar (MID-DAY; June 1, 2012)
Sharman Joshi largely prefers to remain inaccessible and incommunicado. He is off the radar. Unlike other actors who want people to know what they are doing (and not doing), he keeps himself away from the glare.
You barely spot him with wife Prerna (Prem Chopra’s daughter) and kids Khyana, Vaaryan and Vihaan out and about town. But now that his film Ferrari Ki Sawaari is ready for the marquee, he is available and talking. At his sea-front Bandra home, there are no telltale signs of his Bollywood outings. It’s simply and tastefully done with wooden flooring. He does not evade questions and is quite forthright….
Don’t you believe that when you are out of sight, you are out of mind? I am happy to be in my own space and I like it this way. I don’t follow the herd mentality. I may have not done a large number of films considering the number of years I have been around. But I really don’t want to bite more than I can chew. I am always asked why I don’t do more films. I am happy to have people’s love and affection.
Finally you have a film with you as the solo hero? There are many people who wanted to see me play the solo lead. It took a while but it happened. I am aware that other actors were approached for the role before me but eventually it had to come my way. I play a father to a young kid in the film. There’s also Boman Irani. With him More >
