Sahil Vaid has performed the ‘hero ka dost’ in lots of movies, together with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014), Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), and extra not too long ago in Shershaah. While taking part in comparable roles repeatedly may fear actors about being typecasted, Vaid has by no means had any qualms about it.
Clearing the air about being misquoted as saying he “regretted” doing a small half in Shershaah, the actor says he is grateful to the movie trade for giving him each position he has performed until date.
He says, “When the recent fiasco happened, where I was misquoted as saying I regret doing Shershaah as it was a small role, people at the film’s production house were surprised because they never expected me to say something like that. They called and confirmed. I feel the industry is not ruthless at all, but if you are not upgrading yourself as an actor, not working on yourself, then everybody will get bored of you.”
For Vaid, the film, as a complete, is what issues extra. “It’s like a burger. You have one and know there is the bun, then the patty… you don’t think about lettuce, onion, tomatoes, you are enjoying the burger. I am the lettuce. Without me, you would be like something is missing. Eventually, some day I will become the bun, if I keep refreshing myself as an actor.”
The 34-year-old, who performed a visually challenged character in Dil Bechara (2020), says the aspect roles he performs have at all times been different and not stereotypical.
“You see me as a happy go lucky guy in Humpty, in Badrinath, I run a marriage bureau, in Bank Chor, I played a psychopath killing people, and then in Shershaah, I am the hero ka dost, but there is only one light scene, rest I don’t see anything funny said by me. Recently, I auditioned for a character which is unlike anything I have ever done before,” says Vaid, who shall be seen subsequent in Satyameva Jayate 2.
