Actor Ssharad Malhotraa says that his fans have always made him feel special.

Television actor Ssharad Malhotraa might appear to have a comfortable life in Mumbai, with a thriving career and loyal fan following. However, this isn’t quite the case, as the actor says that he often feels lonely and wishes he could meet his family often. “I have given 10 years of my life to the television industry and I hope to continue to do so for the rest of my life. However, having said that, this also means that I have stayed away from my family for the last 10 years, which has been very difficult. My life may look so colourful from outside, however it’s quite lonely,” says Ssharad, who has acted in shows such as Banoo Main Teri Dulhann and Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap.

The actor adds that meeting his family also becomes quite a challenge due to distance and time constraints. “I am very attached to my parents. I would love to meet them more, but they can’t keep coming to Mumbai. It is very tough for me to go there as well, because there is hardly any time. My sister is also there,” he says.

However despite this, he says that his fans have made his life in Mumbai worth it. “I have no complaints. My shows have done well and my fans love me. I came to Mumbai as no one, but with a dream. The kind of love and adulation, appreciation I have got, has been phenomenal,” says Ssharad, who is currently in the show Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki.
