Actor Sharib Hashmi has been a part of many prestigious Bollywood and even Hollywood (one) films. He won hearts with the superb portrayal of a hard core Hindi film buff in the hugely acclaimed FILMISTAAN (was praised by none other than BIG B himself!), essayed the role of Shah Rukh Khan’s friend in Yash Chopra’s last directorial venture JAB TAK HAIN JAAN, and last but not the least, was part of the award winning international movie, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
Talking to the press at a famous University Film Festival, Sharib Hashmi shared his thoughts and experiences. Said Sharib, “I belonged to a filmy background as my father was a noted film journalist (Mr. Z. A. Johar), and I always dreamt of becoming an actor, though in my early days I also tried my hand at direction (assistant director of HUM TUM PAR MARTE HAIN starring Govinda-Urmila) and writing. I have learned a lot from actors like Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.”
Well, here’s looking forward to more films like SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and JAB TAK HAI JAAN from the talented actor.
