‘Golmaal’ completes 15 glorious years today. How does it feel?
Yes, I have no words to express my feelings. It’s my first Bollywood film and it will always remain special for me. I am very grateful to our director Rohit Shetty and our creative head Vikas Kadam, who referred my name to Rohit Shetty sir.
Can you share the story of how you came on board for ‘Golmaal’?
I played a small and very popular character of ‘Sattu Supari’ in the film. I got this film because of my friend and our creative head Vikas Kadam. Vikas referred my name to Rohit sir for this character. It was my first Bollywood film and that to sharing the screen with Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharman Joshi and Sanjay Mishra was like dream come true.
What did you think about your character Sattu Supari was a turning point for your career?
Today is the birthday of my character ‘Sattu Supari’. I think nobody will forget Sattu Supari. I played a small role but it will always be one of the most special characters I’ve played. There are so many profiles of Sattu Supari on social media and he now more popular. I think Sattu Supari’ is one of my memorable characters and it will always be.
How is Rohit Shetty as a director and as a person?
Rohit Shetty is a man of a golden heart. Being such a popular and well-known filmmaker, I have always seen him respectful with everyone. He is very dedicated to his work and at the same time a very down to earth person.
