‘Naagin 5’: Sharad Malhotra Opens Up On Being Offered Veer’s Role In Supernatural Drama
Television Actor, Sharad Malhotra Shares His Experience Of Shooting For Ekta Kapoor Serpents Drama, 'Naagin 5'
Hina Khan starrer ‘Naagin 5’ has been making quite a buzz ever since the makers treated the fans with the teaser of the show. Renowned television actor, Sharad Malhotra will be seen portraying the role of an antagonist in the supernatural serpents drama. The actor now spills the beans on how he bagged the role and what made him lose his nerve.
As per a recent report by Pinkvilla, Sharad while speaking about the show informed them that,”Initially when I was offered Naagin 5, I had this perception that I was going to be the hero. But then I was corrected saying that no, Ekta Ma’am wants you as the antagonist, as the villain and that completely took me by surprise. It was something which I never expected. Considering that I was doing TV for last 14-15 years, nobody had the guts to offer me the negative lead. By guts, I mean that nobody visualised me like this. I have been playing only hero or the protagonist, the positive guy for the longest time, I played a warrior, a sanskari beta or pati but never a grey character. I am forever going to be grateful to them for this opportunity, Ekta just threw a googly.”
He further reveals that on the first day of the shoots, he was cold feet because he used to play a hero in the shows. “I walk and talk like a hero but right here she wants Veer to be a brass, evil, kamina but when he walk, he gives a rat ass about anyone. He doesn’t believe in love and is all about lust. Such a man is difficult to find up here. I had never done such a character and hence I was very excited. The first episode when it aired, I did not watch it. I usually watch my episodes but this time I didn’t. After a while, I went online, me and my wife, and I was overwhelmed seeing the reaction. I welled up,” he added further.
Sharad was last seen sharing the screen space with Yesha Rughani in ‘Muskaan’.
