He said that post that, while everyone expected him to do only lead characters in films, that is not how he looked at his projects.
Sharman told IANS: “I have immense faith and confidence in myself and thanks to God, I am every grateful to him for the talent bestowed upon me. Right after ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’, there were plenty of solo offers for me. Typically our industry thinks and functions in a way that ‘now Sharman will only be interested in doing solo hero films.’ But that is now how I thought. ”
He goes on to say that while everyone was waiting for him to go the stereotypical manner, he instead did films which didn’t meet the expected criteria.
“Everybody thought I would do solo hero film but I was waiting for the right script to come my way, be it ensemble or solo hero. I didn’t have any precedented notion in my head. It so happened that a beautiful film ‘Gang of Ghosts’ came to me, a film called ‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ came to me and then there was Super Nani. These were ensemble cast. They didnt work, all these three films. I chose scripts and they didn’t work out but that is life,” says the actor, who was recently seen in “Fauji Calling”.
The actor concluded: “My choices were never on the fact that I wanted to do a solo film, just because I was part of a hit solo film earlier.”
