He's Got The Looks & Talent too
Shahwar Ali who's already shown his menacing act in Karan Razdan's Hawas opposite Meghna Naidu is an actor to watch out for. Shahwar who hails from Bhopal and has quite a few big ad campaigns (read Kamasutra, Zod shirts, Raymonds, Monte Carlo plus a short stint as the in house model for Calvin Klein in London) under his snazzy belt is all set to storm Bollywood. While Hawas was his entry ticket to the industry, he is equally gung ho about his next two films, Deepak Tijori's 'Khamosh' "in which I play a cop and my character in the film will be quite a revelation and Rajesh Singh's 'Ab Bas' with Diana Hayden, in which my role has grey shades and Sanjay Bhatia's 99.9 FM in which I play a radio jockey. That was quite a fun character to play."
Those striking looks, that lopsided smile and a charismatic personality to match, it's little wonder that Shahwar Ali who's done a three month acting course with Raj Jagdishan a theatre personality is pretty confident about his new found passion and that's - acting. "Though I have been modeling for a quite a while and have lent my face to some really big campaigns it's movies that I want to be in. I think it's been my good fortune, be it modeling or films, I have never had to really struggle. Fortunately people have noticed me and offered me work. I have really been lucky to have met the right people at the right time", says Shahwar.
The actor feels each day, each film brings with it a unique experience "and I am very sure about what I want to do, the kind of films, the kind of banners I want to work in, the directors I want to work with. I'm quite clear about the characters I want to play and I hope I get roles which bring out the different aspects of my personality." A graduate in Commerce, Shahwar says right from school and college days he's always been a sports person. "I love playing tennis, basically any sport." Having moved to Mumbai in 2000, Shahwar swears by the city which has adopted him. "It's tough out here but I am happy living here and making it on my own." Making it big may we add even as he looks forward to films with Ajay Chandok and T P Agarwal.
