Murli Sharma says 2015 was one of his best years

On Tutak Tutak Tutiya

I am a huge fan of Prabhu Deva.  When I found out he was in the film, I knew I had to do it. Another interesting aspect of the movie was director, Vijay. I do a lot of South films too. I kind of know who is making which film. I had watched a few of his Tamil films, like Thalaivaa, Saivam, Oru Naal Iravil and Poi Solla Porom, and I loved all of them. Another connection was Sonu Sood, who is the producer of the film and a very dear friend. So there were many reasons to do the film.

On director

As I said, I had seen AL Vijay’s work. And then I met him at a coffee shop. I realised that even though he had delivered so many good films, he was very grounded and well-spoken. I kind of loved that about him and decided I had to work with him. He narrated my role to me, and told me the genre. Everything else was done on the set.  I felt a positive attraction towards this film from day one.

On response

I have done so many films but only a have few have brought me this much appreciation. Everyone is messaging and calling to say how much they loved me in the movie. People are enjoying the movie and are having fun. You can do a comedy film or an emotional one or a thriller but one thing stays the same – you want the audience to connect with your film, and that’s what makes it an entertainer.

On shooting experience

I am the only actor in this film who has dubbed for all three language versions – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. I’ll never forget how we would finish a scene and Vijay would always say, ‘Sir, you need to dub for all languages,’ because he wanted my voice. I never prepare for a role. I am not a method actor. I listen to my director and then let the situation unfold. I always go in as a student, seeking to learn on the sets because you can learn from every person on the set. As an actor, you notice people and pick up on things and those little details can really enrich your role. That’s what I love about acting. That you get to be so many different people.

Variations in roles

I believe 2015 was one of my best years. I had seven or eight releases, almost one a month. My filmography will show I am getting good roles. I worked in ABCD 2, Badlapur, Sanam Teri Kasam, Singham Returns, Jai Gangaajal and Tutak Tutak Tutiya, and each role was different from the others, so I am not getting typecast.

The screen time my character gets has never mattered. I might have four scenes but they always make an impact and my character takes the story forward. In Jai Gangaajal, I had a strong role; in Baby, I had a small role but one I fell in love with from the moment Neeraj Pandey narrated it to me. And, of course, the more you work, the more you learn.

Various languages

I am working in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Marathi. Working in different languages helps me grow as an actor because all year I am learning from a wide range of people. Whatever the language, my mission is the same: to stay true to the role and bring life to my character.

On future projects

I just finished Babumoshai Bandookbaaz with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Then I have a film called Tadka, directed by Prakash Raj.
