Actor Sharad Malhotra is one of the most popular face of Indian television Industry. The actor has cemented his position on TV with shows like Banoo Main Teri Dulhann, Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap, Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki, Naagin 5 and more. Not only television, Sharad also stepped into Bollywood, but now he is keen to experiment on different mediums, including OTT.
As reported by TellyChakkar, at this stage of his career, Sharad who gained immense popularity for his performance in supernatural saga Naagin 5, is keen to explore other mediums of entertainment as an actor. He said, “I’ve been seeing myself on television for the last 15 years. As an actor, I want to see myself in different mediums. However, my love for television will always be there. It’s my bread and butter. It has given me an identity. People know me because of the small screen.”
Sharad Malhotra forayed into Bollywood with “From Sydney with Love (2012)” and later acted in “Ek Tera Saath (2016)”, but sadly both the films failed to create magic in cinemas. “I’m not ashamed of that. I tried and I gave it my best shot. A lot of hard work went into it, but it did not turn out to be as I expected to be,” he admits. However, the failures have not deterred Sharad from trying his luck again in cinema. “But that doesn’t mean I will quit television. I also want to explore the OTT format. But TV will always be my first love,” the actor shared.
He concluded saying, “Cinema is a different ball game altogether. It’s larger than life, while television is a small little box. We’re trying to sell dreams and make shows which people watch while sitting in the comfort of their homes.”
