Ssharad Malhotraa who is playing the title role in Maharana Pratap has done a historical show for the first time and the response is fabulous. He daily gets into the costume and the character and lives more on the set than his home. The reel and real life Ssharad Malhotraa have many similarities. Both are head strong and both are ambitious and particular about everything. The winning streak is also common. Ssharad said “I daily get into the skin of the character. I am living my character on the set. The show has given me lot of applause and the response is overwhelming. Doing a historical is surely a different experience compared to doing a regular daily soap. I end up giving lot of myself to the character.
On being asked how is a normal non- working day in his life he said, “Getting up at 2pm, having my chai in the balcony, reading the newspaper and not taking phone calls! The beach is right next to my house where I take a stroll and enjoy the sunset or just stare at the sea. It is nice to go blank at times as we TV actors work round- the- clock. Otherwise I have my coffee, meet some friends, go for a drive and eat at a good restaurant. And I am a mama’s boy, I can be on the phone all day with my mom ( smiles ).
Ssharad also revealed his dream of becoming a cricketer. “I have played cricket seriously and wanted to pursue it as a career, but then acting happened”.
For him relations are are very important. “I am a sensitive person who values relationships and friendship. I live life one day at a time. I believe it’s nice to be important but its more important to be nice”.
