People in Bollywood have started taking me seriously as an actor: Sahil Vaid

People in Bollywood have started taking me seriously as an actor: Sahil Vaid

By Rajesh Ahuja New Delhi, Mar 9 (UNI) He left an indelible mark with his portrayal of Poplu, the cute and bubbly friend of Humpty Sharma (Varun Dhawan) in 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhanian ' who tickled the funny bone of the audience. Upcoming actor Sahil vaid, who plays a key role in 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian ', a sequel to 'Humty Sharma Ki Dulhanian ', says that after fabulous response to his portrayal of Poplu in the earlier film, the film industry has started taking him seriously as an actor. Talking to UNI in an interview, Sahil said life in the film industry has changed a lot for him after the success of 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhanian '. 'Life has changed quite a lot for me after HSKD. After the film, people have been going crazy for my character. Though I wouldn't say that I have arrived as an actor as I have a long way to go." However, I would say that people in the industry have started taking me seriously as an actor. People have started giving me offers and started considering me for roles. Now they know that this guy knows his job,' Sahil said. Asked if his character in 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian ' was similar to the one played by him in 'HSKD', Sahil said, 'in Badrinath Ki Dulhanian, my character's arc is completely different from that in 'HSKD '. In this film, I play Badri's childhood friend Somdev. Both Badri and Somdev have grown up together.' Asked if it was a comic character like poplu in 'HSKD ', sahil said, 'I would not call it a comic character. In HSKD ', Varun and I were playing characters who were totally naive. In contrast, my character in 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian ' has various shades to it. The film will reveal to the audience a different side to me.' On the experience of working with Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan for the second time in 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian ', the actor said, 'it was fabulous working with Alia and Varun. Both of them are bonfire actors today. But they do not behave like stars. Both of them are so down to earth and comfortable to work with. Intact, they are actors first and stars later. They have been such a charm to work with in 'HSKD ' and 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian '. If I had my way, I would be working only with Alia and Varun for the rest of my life.' Sahil said he shared an excellent comfort level with the director of 'HSKD ' and 'Badrinath Ki Dulhanian ' Shashank Khaitan, who was his senior in film school and also worked with him in theatre. 'Shashank was my senior in film school and we both worked together in a theatre group by senior actor Naseeruddin Shah. Naturally, I and Shashank had a good comfort level on the sets." He did not have to sit with me for hours to help me understand a scene He just had to pick up from our common experiences and I would know what to do,' he said. Among his forthcoming projects are Yash raj films' 'Bank Chor', Nandita Das' 'Manto' and a guest appearance in the forthcoming Manjari Fadnis starrer 'Aapa Dhapi'. UNI AR SNU 1613
