Actor Amit Sadh says Sultan, the Salman Khan film that featured him in a prominent role, has given his career a new lease of life.
Sadh made his debut with Kai Po Che! in 2013, but success eluded him until Sultan, which is not only his biggest hit so far but has also got him offers from many filmmakers.
“For me, Sultan was like a resurrection. I think my career was almost dead. You go through these lows and highs in life, especially in a film career and you live with your chin up. I am very grateful to the director, Ali [Abbas Zafar] who thought I could do this role,” Sadh said.
“And the rest is history. Salman sir blessed me. He blessed me with a great role and he blessed me with Sultan and I am very grateful to everyone,” the actor added.
The 37-year-old actor held his own in front Khan’s larger-than-life presence.
“I really didn’t try to match up to Salman sir’s persona because even if you try you can’t match him. I just tried to be honest to my role and my character. I have just enjoyed every bit of standing in the same frame with that legend,” Sadh added.
After the film, things are looking up for the actor.
“I always tell everyone in a joke that there are always two answers to a question. One is a typical actor answer, where you sound so intellectual and you sound so correct, and you are so busy and you have a million offers.
“I am not that kind of a guy. I am a guy who says as it is. But yes, after Sultan there are more filmmakers who are looking at me for meatier roles and there is more faith in them. And yes, I think Sultan gave me the greatest platform ever to showcase my talent,” Sadh said.
Asked if a sequel will be made, Sadh said: “That answer only the director Ali and Salman sir can give. I am too small to dictate all this. But I am also a Salman fan and I definitely think there should be a sequel and I have a vested interest in this because I would break an arm and a leg to be with Salman sir again in a film again.”
