Amit is Amitabh’s choice


Actor Amit Sadh won many accolades for his flawless performance in Kai Po Che from the audiences as well as critics. Later the actor did do a slew of films but they failed to make a mark at the box office. While this may act as a deterrent for other actors, Amit was determined and continued to hone his craft. His hard work paid off in last year’s hit, Sultan and now he is back in Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar 3, in which he is essaying the character of the arrogant, volatile Shivaji Nagre, Amitabh’s grandson.

It was his performance in Sultan and Kai Po Che which prompted Amitabh Bachchan to recommend his name for the movie. Talking about how it was working with the shahenshah of Bollywood, Amit says, “Bachchan sahab is a legend and it has been a great experience. I am very fortunate to get an opportunity to be in the same film and in a film like Sarkar.”

This is the first time that Amit was working with filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma who has a reputation of being very eccentric and moody. “That is a wrong perception that people have of him. Since I have worked with him I can tell you there is nothing eccentric about him. Actually he is a very cool guy. What people don’t understand is what people call eccentric,” Amit defends his director, who rumour has it was so impressed by Amit’s acting that has signed 2 new film with the actor. “I haven’t signed anything yet, but I will be happy to work with him again. There is a lot to learn from him,” Amit dispels the rumours.

After Kanagna refuelled the debate of nepotism, many actors from the industry have come out to support her. But Amit refutes these claims of nepotism and asks people to reflect upon the industry who have given them a voice. “How can I complain? I have been casted by Amitabh Bachchan. All these people who are crying about nepotism, they all forget that they all came in this industry with nothing. This industry has given us so much. Instead we should bow in front of it than cry like a baby,” Amit said.
