Sharman Joshi Is Still At The Mercy Of Directors
He has acted in hit movies like ‘Rang De Basanti’, ‘3-Idiots’, ‘Sorry Bhai’ and recently released ‘Hello Darling’, his talent is well recognized and respected in the industry. The way he does justice to his role is extremely touching and it straight away connects to the feelings of the viewers.
But, he says, “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.”
Now, the actor is ready with one more release, he will be seen as a criminal from a slum in debutant actor-director Faruk Kabir’s ‘Allah Ke Banday’.
He adds further, “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.”
‘Allah Ke Bandey’ is releasing on October 22 and it also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Atul Kulkarni.
The story of the film is about a 12 years old boy who lives in the most ruthless slums of India. Every illegal activity like drugs transport, looting people, everything is done there.
Sharman narrates the story further, “In slums, where people struggle for their daily meals, providing education to their children is a far-fetched dream. It’s a Catch 22 situation. The kids who grow up in this atmosphere unknowingly become susceptible to petty crimes starting from pick pocketing and with time graduate to more complicated crimes, even contract killing. Your heart goes out when you meet these kids.”
