Actor Sharad Malhotra is one of the most talented and versatile actors of our times! His screen presence has been so magnetic and captivating over the years, giving us some memorable characters of all times to cherish. No wonder why he has an incredible fan base. The actor is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming film 'Thanks Mom' which is slated to release on Mother's day as a token of love for all the mothers out there.
But what makes it more special is the fact that Sharad will be seen in a completely different character which we have never seen before.
Speaking about his short film "Thanks Mom" and what made him say yes to the project Sharad shared, "The title itself was incredibly appealing, serving as a heartfelt tribute to all mothers. When I was offered this, I was clearly told that it was for Mother's Day concerning the mothers, for the mothers, then obviously the subject, which was very exciting. So in totality the title, the subject, the story, everything. This kind of subject and character I have never done in my entire career and I've always liked to do different roles and characters, that's how people know me, people know me for my versatility. So when I got this opportunity, I had to do it."
He further added, "My character is very out-of-the-box and very interesting for me. I had to step out of my comfort zone and I had a strong intuition that I should embrace it. It required extensive preparation, from studying and researching to understanding the nuances of Rohan's personality. People expect something extraordinary whenever I take on a role, and this character definitely delivers that. They have also told me that if Sharad is doing something, it will not be, it will not be like a regular normal thing. And I feel immensely grateful to have been given the chance to explore new territory and provide an exciting treat for my fans; it's something I've never done before, and I'm truly excited about it".
Explaining further Sharad shared "Portraying this character was slightly challenging as it deviated from the usual day-to-day roles. It demanded a deep understanding of its intricate layers, requiring me to strike a delicate balance without going overboard or underplaying it. I invite you all to watch and experience this unique character named Rohan; it's unlike anything I've ever done before. I sincerely hope that audiences enjoy it".
The film also stars Akanksha Puri opposite Sharad Malhotra including Pravina Deshpande and Palash Dutta in pivotal roles. Directed by Manik Talwar it was released on May 14 on Disney+Hotstar.
