Ek Ghar Banaunga actor Rahul Sharma has made his feet firm in the telly town & his latest show Kaal Bhairav Rahasya boasts of high TRPs in the first week run itself.
We have heard of many struggle stories in the B-town & though Rahul’s might be just another one off the book but his tryst with yesteryear superstar Dev Anand is one not many would know about.
The actor who hails from Rajasthan’s second smallest district had a long wait before his first big break. The actor recounts one incident that he cannot forget in this lifetime.
Rahul shares, ‘I was waiting in the lounge room of Devji’s production house, the wait was as long as all other meetings I had been doing for the previous 8-9 months and also rejections. During the never ending wait, I see an 85 plus someone walk across the room walking swiftly towards the edit room. It took me few seconds to find out, it was Devji himself. As I witnessed few shaky steps, I walked towards him offering him a hand to which he replied ‘I can take care of myself young man’ I had the biggest smile on my face. I was impressed.’
‘I made my mind, even if I didn’t get the role I was auditioning for, I wanted to meet him personally & requested a friend there if Devji could see me. I walked in the room & he was engrossed in the edits and gave his inputs. He greeted me with so much warmth, he said ‘Oh young man, do good in life & work hard to achieve what you want to’ I took his blessings. The very next day I got a call for my first big TV show Kahani Chandrakanta Ki. That meeting is still fresh in my memory & I’ll always work hard towards what I want. I believe his blessings really worked for me.’
