MUMBAI: Wrestler Sangram Singh has started shooting for the serial Shapath.
He is super-kicked about his acting career which seemed to be encountering hiccups in the initial stages.
Says Sangram, “I am supposed to do a Dara Singh bio-pic for the large screen. That was meant to be my acting debut. But the project was taking longer than I thought it would. In the meanwhile I got the chance to play myself , that is Sangram Singh in the series Shapath on Life OK.”
In the series Sangram would star as a Haryanvi super-cop.
Says Sangram, “I am playing a Haryanvi cop and being myself on the show. I will be making my debut on Fiction TV debut with this show. I realise after being part of reality shows that television is a very big medium to connect with audiences these days. Also post Bigg Boss Salman Khan Sir and Sunil Shetty ji had advised me to do a positive character on television if the opportunity arises. Well, I was not aware that I would be doing it so soon.”
Sangram is taking acting lessons to look convincing on screen even if he’s playing himself. “I am working on my acting skills but playing myself helps. I have been a cop with Delhi Police during my wrestling training days. Apart from that the show’s producer B.P.Singh ji and the channel head Ajit Thakur ji are like my big brothers and I respect them a lot. Whatever they will think for me will be for my good only.”
Sangram is enjoying the new phase in his career. “I have started shooting and it’s a great feeling to do all stunts by myself from stopping the car to jumping on top of the roofs. It’s a great adrenaline rush for me. I am thoroughly enjoying my acting debut on television.”
