“Thousands of aspiring actors reach the Mumbai city with a million dreams every year. But it gets so difficult to get even one chance to prove yourself that many return home with failure. At the same time, there are people who have faith in themselves and their talent. They are ready to keep the struggle going till the end”, says Rahul.
He admits that he gave some 600-700 auditions during his struggling days. It was after that that he started getting contracts and work. Many a times, he felt he has failed and thought of returning home. But then, something inside him didn’t let him give up on his dreams. Moreover, he had good friends and his family by his side, who supported him and motivated him to work harder.
During a Talk Show at JKK for Rang Rajasthan, actor Rahul Sharma spoke about his journey into the acting field with Abhishek Mudgal, Director of the fest. Rahul also spoke about giving some 100 auditions in a month, when people started suggesting him to go back home. Because of these 100 auditions, he was offered 3-4 advertisements and a role in a TV show.
When asked about his beginning days, Rahul told about moving to Jaipur from the town Dausa for studies. He thought of joining the theatre when he lived in the Pink City for studies. He joined a theatre workshop at JKK under the direction of Sabir Khan. He is thankful to the workshop which helped him at all phases of his acting journey. He learnt several improvisation exercises during the workshop.
Rahul Sharma has been seen in ‘Kahani Chandrakanta Ki’, ‘Teri Meri Love Story’, ‘Ek Rishta Aesa Bhi’ and ‘Satrangi Sasural’ in the past. Now he will be seen in a web series soon.
What we get to learn from the talk session with Rahul Sharma is that – ‘You must Believe in Yourself a Little More. Once you do that - No Struggle would Look that Big.’
