'I feel sorry for the new cast'

'I feel sorry for the new cast'

Excerpts from an interview with Sharad Kelkar:
You have been associated with Saat Phere for a long time. Tell us how you feel about the soap coming to an end.

I am very sad about it. Though I was not a part of it for one and a half month, but I have worked for almost three and a half years so the attachment is there. I have seen the show grow, plus I have aged on the show, so the whole journey has given me many things in life. It is very close to my heart and I am very sad about it. But one thing should always end for a new start, which is the procedure of life.

Was it the right time for the show to end?

That depends on the channel creative and the producers. It is their mutual decision so I cannot comment. Obviously as an actor, I never wanted the show to end. I used to spend more time on the sets than in my house.

Is there one incident that happened on the sets of this long running show that you would always remember?

There are a lot of moments. But I still remember the day when we got our first award (Indian Telly Awards). The whole team went with Ashwini Yardi, who is the channel head and Sanjay Wadhwa on the stage. Shilpa Shetty gave us the award. That was the day we felt very proud of our show. It was the award for the best show and that was the most memorable day of my life.

What would you like to say to the unit of Saat Phere and your fans?

I would like to thank my fans for appreciating me. I would also like to thank Sanjay Wadhwa and Comall for giving me an opportunity to work with them. Then I would also like to thank Zee for showing trust in me that I can be the part of the channel. 

I feel very sorry for the new cast; the two girls and the boys who recently joined the show. I want to tell them that it was a good beginning with a good show, and hope their next projects will be a hit and they achieve success in their lives.
