Sharad Kelkar recalls his wife Keerti being scared when he broke glass in anger.
Sharad Kelkar opened up about his anger issues and how it caused a problem in his personal life.
Known for being the voice of Southern superstar Prabhas in the hit franchise Baahubali, Sharad Kelkar has proven his acting talent in TV shows and web series, alongside Hindi, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil movies. The 46-year-old actor made his television debut with the show Aakrosh airing on Doordarshan. The actor later hosted TV shows but rose to fame as Thakur Digvijay Singh Bhadoria in the TV show Bairi Piya. Kelkar, who would lend his voice to Adipurush, recently opened up about his anger issues.
During a conversation with Siddharth Kannan, Sharad Kelkar recalls an incident that ended up scaring his wife. The actor reportedly broke glass in a fit of rage. He revealed: “The biggest example is the 150 stitches in my hand and I had to have surgery. It was a major incident, I hit the glass and it completely broke on my hand. Keerti witnessed it, she was very scared. I was in the hospital and saw how she was crying outside. It had a huge impact on my life and I decided to calm down. She was scared, but I also saw that hope in her eyes. She told me that she was afraid for her too when she saw my reaction. After that life became completely calm.”
The actor also recalled the time when he had just arrived in Mumbai but struggled with the problem of stuttering. He said: “I didn’t know how to act and I had no money or house. This time has taught me that I will have to work hard and keep hustling until I get a job. It was the 2003-04 phase. After that, when I did my first TV show, Sindoor Tere Naam Ka. I had a stuttering problem and I didn’t know how I could overcome it.”
Talking about his film Adipurush where he again became the voice of Prabhas, when the teaser for the film was released last October, he left a large part of the audience disappointed. While some criticized it for its visual effects, others claimed that Hindu gods were poorly represented in the teaser.
Directed by Om Raut, Adipurush is a film adaptation of the Indian epic Ramayana. While Prabhas will play the role of Raghav in the film, Kriti Sanon will play Janaki. The film also stars Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist, portraying King Ravana and Sunny Singh as Laxman. Adipurush is considered the greatest film of Prabhas’ career. It is a mythological drama which was made on a budget of Rs 300 crore. The film is jointly funded by Bhushan Kumar’s T series and Retrophiles. The trailer for the film will be released on May 17.
