Better technology is changing game for TV: Ashish Sharma of Siya Ke Ram
Actor Ashish Sharma believes that introducing better special effects and VFX technology has turned the tables for the television industry.
“Our shows were limited when it came to visual effects. We always shot with no movements in camera. However, now things are changing and television shows are taking up more advanced technology,” says Sharma, who is currently playing the role of Ram from Ramayan in a mythological show.
“It is not only bringing in more audience for the show but also changing the notion about television not growing into something more powerful,” he adds.
Before his current show, Sharma played the role of as Major Rudra Pratap Ranawat in the show Rangrasiya. Talking about his preference of shows, the actor feels it is important to connect with every character he plays.
“I have grown up on literature and mythological stories. They have fascinated me since childhood and I believe every character that I portray on screen is an extension of my personality to some degree. That is why, whatever role I play seems in my comfort zone.”
The character of Ram has brought mass popularity for the actor and sharing his fan experience, the actor says, “Once this old lady saw me in airport and just kept smiling at me and after much hesitation she came and asked me ‘Are you Ram? Can I touch your hair? Is it real?’ and I happily obliged.”
