Actor Shreyas Talpade, who is currently shooting for his next film, Single Salma, feels 2022 has been a great year for him. He was praised not only for lending his voice to Allu Arjun’s character in Pushpa: The Rise (2021), but also for his performance in Kaun Pravin Tambe? (KPT) . He admits that these appearances have altered people’s perceptions of him as an actor.
“I am known for doing comedy roles and it’s surprising that none of my current films are in that space”, he says, adding, “Nobody knows kaunsi picture aapko kahan le jaye… I was not seen in Pushpa, but I got so much love for it. I consider myself fortunate that I got a chance to be a part of the film. When KPT started streaming (it was an OTT release), it helped change the way I was perceived as an actor”.
The 46-year-old confesses to being “flooded with dubbing offers”, but he wants to be selective. “If I start taking on everything, then there won’t be any exclusivity. Earlier, I dubbed for The Lion King (2019). I am looking forward to dubbing for Pushpa 2: The Rule if I get the opportunity,” says the Golmaal actor. Because Talpade cherishes his friendship with Pushpa, he goes on to discuss his biggest takeaways from the film. “Allu Arjun is one of my favourite actors and being a part of such a franchise has enriched me. Unki acting ko salaam hai and thanks to director Sukumar, I studied the way a masala entertainer is made. The film is like a textbook. From KPT I have learnt that it’s all about ‘keep on trying’ as we never know what turns the tide and if we give up change will never happen!” he adds.
After finishing his shoot in Lucknow, he will begin another project next month and will join the next leg Emergency in January.He has already completed filming for Manu Aur Munni Ki Shaadi and is looking forward to the release of SarCar Ki Seva Main, his second film as a director (after Poster Boys).
