New Delhi, June 26 (IANS) TV actor Anuj Sachdeva, one of the few small screen actors who shared screen space with big screen divas Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone in ad films, says given a chance he would like to work in intense movies like “Sadma” or “Pushpak”.
“I want to work in an action film. But given a chance, I would love to work in films like ‘Sadma’ and ‘Pushpak’. These films are intense and very expressive,” Anuj told IANS.
Active on the small screen, he has replaced Farhan Khan as the male lead in Sony’s daily show “Chhanchhan”, which stars Sanaya Irani in the female lead.
There were reports that Farhan quit the show because of Sanaya’s non-cooperation on the sets, but the 30-year-old is facing no such problems.
He refused to comment on Farhan’s part saying, “I don’t know what happened between them because I was not there but my experience with Sanaya is very good. She is a fabulous person”.
“She has really helped me a lot while shooting for the show. While doing a romantic scene where I need to hold her and look into her eyes, if I get nervous, she would say, ‘It’s okay. Don’t be nervous’. So she is very co-operative and helpful. She is also very bold in that sense,” he added.
Anuj was first seen on TV as a contestant on the third season of “MTV Roadies”. Later he got into acting and featured in shows like “Sabki Laadli Bebo” and then appeared in “Phir Subah Hogi”.
He has also been seen in several commercials and, expressing his love for ads, Anuj said he “always loved doing advertisements”.
“My ‘Gillette’ advertisement in 2008 was a very big one. It was made in different languages too. I was picked up from that advertisement and that’s when my acting career started,” he added.
Meanwhile, Anuj is all set for his debut in Punjabi films with “Haani”, due to release some time this year. He is also working in a Bollywood film, that will release next year, but he refused to share any information about it.
