I never faced a lull, have seen success in phases: Sharman
Mumbai: Sharman Joshi who has given memorable performances in films like 'Rang De Basanti', 'Life in a Metro, '3 Idiots', may not have reached the top rung in Bollywood but says he has tasted success in phases.
"I never had a lull phase in my career, it was just that I wasn't doing any work. My films were working but I had decided to sit at home. I was getting a lot of offers but I consciously decided not to take them up because they weren't the kind of films I wanted to do," Sharman said in an interview here.
"Post '3 Idiots', I didn't work for two years. Doing less work was frustrating but I have survived. I think the wait has paid off," he said.
His last film 'Ferrari Ki Saawari' which came a year back got a mixed response at the box office but his performance was appreciated.
"My commercial and box office standing has improved post the release of 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari'. I have started getting some exciting offers. I did have offers earlier as well but they were not desirable. I would do films that I would enjoy working in," he said.
"The film earned Rs 30 crores net at the box office. Being a solo hero film I consider it as a big achievement for myself. I was trying to break into that space. Before 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari', I did some solo films like 'Sorry Bhai', 'Toh Baat Paaki', which bombed at the box office. I made a decision that I would rather wait and get the right film," he said.
