Mumbai, July 11 (IANS) The Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt starrer “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” released six years ago on this day, and actor Sahil Vaid has shared a funny recall of how he bagged the role of Poplu.
One would expect Sahil, a newbie at that point, to adopt a meticulous approach at the audition. However, when he got an opportunity to be a part of the Shashank Khaitan directorial ‘s “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”, he did something unexpected.
When the casting directors of the film asked for his photos, he sent them passport size photos. He went on to bag the role of Poplu, the hero’s buddy, in the film!
“‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ will forever hold a special place in my heart. More so because of the way I got the role in the movie. I often look back on my memories and laugh about how lucky I was to have landed a role even after that funny incident,” said Sahil.
“Who in their right mind would ever send passport sized photographs to casting directors? I believe even the top bosses of Dharma Productions including Karan Johar were surprised when they got to know! The movie completes six years today and this is simply one of the many memories I have with its fantastic team,” he added.
The actor will next be seen in “Dil Bechara”, the late Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film that is scheduled for release on a digital platform. He also has roles in “Coolie No.1” and “Shershaah”.
