Sahil Khattar: People say that my energy was like Ranveer Singh.


Sahil Khattar who will be making his bollywood debut with Kabir Khan’s ’83 as former Indian cricketer Syed Kirmani, had started his career as a Radio Jockey, became a TV host, then became a YouTuber and now is all set to make his impression on Bollywood.
Sahil recently spoke about ’83, Ranveer Singh, Shruti Pathak and a lot more in an interview.

Sahil revealed that he was hesitant to do ’83 initially. “I was offered a lot of films in which I was asked to do character rules or play the hero’s friend. But I was never really inclined. Many times the project wasn’t great enough. At times when the project worked out, it never really took off. So luck also plays a factor. Suddenly out of nowhere, Mukesh Chhabra thought I could play the part and even Kabir Khan shortlisted me. I met Kabir and it was a normal conversation in which we discussed many things including sports. I thought there would be 12 to 14 people in the film, what would I do? I was not doing a multi-starrer with 3-4 people, why would I do a film with 12-14? Then I was told to read the script. I read it and realised that in such a film, even if you get to play a tree, you should do it. The script was very nourishing, and I thought if I wasn’t a part of this film, I would not be a part of a historical film in cinema. And if I didn’t would, someone else would. I thought it was too good.

Like Ranveer, Sahil is also known for his energy. Talking about his experience of working with Ranveer, he said, “Where I used to do content for YouTube earlier, people used to say that my energy was like Ranveer Singh. People used to call me bina gym membership wala Ranveer Singh. He was Baajirao and since I was from Punjab, they used to call me Paajirao. When I was hosting the YouTube fan fest, instead of tatad tatad, we had put Khattar Khattar in the song. So from that phase to share screen space with him, it was no less than a dream. He propels you to do much better.”

Well, we really hope the lockdown ends soon so that we get to see ’83 on the big screen.
