Shreyas Talpade talks about his trip to the city B-Entertainment News, Firstpost

Golmaal fame, Shreyas Talpade, recently spoke about his journey in Bollywood and his films that changed his career.

Shreyas Talpade had a period in his career where he appeared in several multi-starred comedies, which he claims he did to keep working rather than “sitting on the fence” and waiting for the proper project. materializes.

Talpade made his acting debut in the critically acclaimed drama Iqbal in 2005. Nagesh Kukunoor’s picture, along with its sequel, Golden, cemented Talpade’s reputation as a reliable performer, particularly in the world of independent film.

In an interview with PTI, the 47-year-old actor said some of his past picks reflected the phase of the industry where biopics or big dramas weren’t in vogue.

“When I look back I don’t regret it. But today I’m wiser. I could say no to something I don’t like or don’t want to do. I had to take those risks. I couldn’t sit on the fence and think, ‘Now something is going to happen and I will.’ Now we have content-driven movies and biopics that people love. That was another era when I started my career,” he said.

Asked how his career came to be dotted with big-budget, mid-range comedies, Talpade said it had its roots in not being in the industry and ignoring so largely how to find it.

“I come from a typical middle class Maharashtrian family with no connection to film. So all of a sudden when you’re thrown into this big world of the Hindi film industry, where there are people who approach, appreciate you, for a while you tend to be, I won’t say, lost but confused, as to what to do,” he added.

Before Talpade turned to comedies, the actor recalled how a director asked him to audition for a comedy franchise, who told him his audition was cool, “but I had a serious image so he had of apprehension”

Talpade said the perception “worried and upset” him, but things quickly changed when he got a call from Subhash Ghai for his production. Apna Sapna Silver Silvera comedy also starring Suniel Shetty, Ritesh Deshmukh, Anupam Kher among others.

“When he called me, I said to him: ‘But sir, it’s a commercial film.’ He said to me: ‘So? You won’t make commercial films?’ I just hadn’t thought of them. When I met him for the narration, I liked the role and did it. Things started to change for me too.”

Talpade said that from the mid-2000s to the end of the decade, the industry went through a phase of multi-star comedies, Golmaal, Dhamal at Dhol and he didn’t want to “miss it”.

“Because you feel like it works, and if you’re not a part of it, you’ll be left behind. That way a lot of these multi-star comedies happened, some worked, some didn’t.

“There were movies offered by some senior, well-known banners. You can’t say no because you’re new to the industry and you feel why take any ‘panga’ (trouble) because they get will feel bad if you turn down their plans. So as an actor, I went with the flow,” he added.

Talpade was recently seen in the drama Kaun Pravin Tambe?based on the life of cricketer Pravin Tambe, who made his IPL debut aged 41.
