Actors have something about them that sets them apart, and Amit Sadh is much more than the characters in his many films. He is way beyond acting itself. Amit started out as an actor on television, and later decided to move on to do films. Is that all we know about him? He is not of the types to make much noise about himself. But he is a talker. Here is a few things that you might have never known about Amit Sadh, the actor...
First things first, you started as a TV star and now you are into films. How did the transition happen?
My life was very different then and now. I have changed for good, the change in me is positive. I too like many was wasted in life, but one day I just woke up and said that I don’t want this life. And that is the day things changed for me, I started exiting people from my life. I’ve even written a book on all that I went through. One moment I decided that I want to do movies, and life changed for me. Things changed from a lot of money to no money at all. People started distancing themselves, they said I was crazy. I had a house which I sold to go and study acting in New York. I came back, and the first audition I gave was Kai Po Che. And I got it!
Amit Sadh a writer and we didn’t even know. So you make a conscious choice to stay away from the limelight and keep things under wrap?
That is how it should be. Nobody should be able to decode me. That is why as an actor nobody knows what I am going to do. I don’t have a PR, nor do I have a manager. I don’t need one as I think there is no need to pay to be in the news, when there is something newsworthy about me then people will know. I talk to people who want to talk to me, people who approach me. You are not a true artist until you touch the people you meet.
