Eight years of rigorous training in theatre with Satish Anand and also doing a movie “Fugly” and “Golu Aur Pappu” prior to “Battalion 609” has given him to the confidence to play the role of a soldier with ease. In a conversation with Bollywood & TV Reporter, Sparsh Sharma speaks about his experiences as an actor and how he is evolving day by day.
Tell us something about your background?
I always wanted to be an actor and I did theater with Satish sir in Delhi for eight years and then I came down to Mumbai and did a few TV shows like Chandrakanta with Sunil Agnihotri but I was not happy as the actor in me craved for the big screen so then I got Fugly and then Golu Aur Pappu and now I am eagerly awaiting for my most ambitious film ‘Battalion 609’.
What is the film all about?
The URI Attacks gathered a lot of media attention in 2016 and the topic is yet a hot favorite topic of discussion. Our film is based on the incident that happened in Kashmir and the aftermath that shook the world. Written and Directed by Brijesh Tripathi and Produced by Naraindas Lalwani, the Films Music is by Shailendra Sayanti. The film also stars Shoaib Ibrahim, Elena Kazan, Farnaaz Shetty, Vishwas Kini, Vicky Ahuja, CP Thakur, Jashan Singh Kohli and Vikas Srivastava. The movie is releasing worldwide on 11th January 2019 by Big Curtains Media. Farnaaz Shetty is cast opposite me.
What is your role in the film?
I play a soldier called Jassi who is tough and attacking but yet very easy going who spouts dialogue of popular Hindi film stars spontaneously and is easily the relief in this film. I had to work on my physique and body language for this film but I am happy with what I have on the platter in this film.
What is the USP of the film and where it was shot?
The USP of the film is a cricket match played by India and Pakistan soldiers on the tension filled borders. The music is almost army based but there are a few romantic songs too composed by Shailendra Sayanti. The film was basically shot in locales of Rajasthan deserts where even JP Dutta’s films have been shot and Mumbai and Pune.
What are your forthcoming projects?
I have a horror thriller film coming up called ‘Bhayam’ which is directed by a South director and I have a film written by myself which will go on the floors soon.
