Sahil Vaid shot to fame with small but significant roles in Dil Bechara, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, and the recent one Shershaah. He played Sidharth Malhotra's on screen friend, Sunny in the recently released Shershaah. He recently got embroiled in a controversy over his alleged statement that said he regretted being part of Shershaah. Sahil later clarified that he never said that.
Now in his conversation with Hindustan Times, he confessed though he thought the role was small, his perspective changed after he read the script. He said, “Yes, I thought the role was very small initially, but when I read the script, met the director (Vishnu Vardhan), I had no second thoughts, it was a no brainer.” “That’s exactly why I used the word ‘reluctant’. When I found out the story, I had to be a part of this film.” The production house also played an important role in making Sahil understand the weightage of such roles.
He added, “A lot of people at the production house helped me in believing this is great, because there are some characters that you just have to do as an actor. Sunny (his character in the film, who is late Captain Vikram Batra’s best friend) was a real guy, and he was there at the shoot in Palampur, behind the monitor. He said I’ve done complete justice to the role.”
“Blockbuster films and one controversy later, I feel like home — very welcomed by the industry, and people I’ve worked with some amazing people. I’ve come to believe that it’s also necessary for actors to keep doing what they’re doing. A lot of times, names who’ve been huge, have kind of stopped working and say, ‘Ab chhote roles nahi karne, want to do big roles’. They keep telling me that’s what was kind of their end in the industry, and they were out looking for work,” Sahil Vaid concluded.
