With a career spanning over two decades, it hasn’t been an easy ride for actor Sai Ballal but even now he feels that though it has been a long journey yet there are many aspects of him, as an actor, left unexplored.
He said, as reported by Hindustan Times, “I have done a lot of work yet when I look back, I find aur ho sakta hai. Like playing negative roles has no doubt given me much fame but I would love to explore simple, positive characters that have the instant audience connect (sic).”
The Udaan fame actor added, “A lot of work has happened and I am happy with the way my career has shaped up but I am not totally satisfied as a performer. Because, if an actor is content then he stops to grow (sic).”
He was a bit apprehensive to take up work during a pandemic and hence decided to wait for a good project to come his way. “I along with my wife left for our farmhouse and stayed there to avoid the crowd. It was also a good break for both of us as we both are actors and such retreats are essential to unwind. And then, we knew, it will take time for shoots to resume (sic).”
Ballal still loves the stage very much and is also ready to explore the OTT platform with an interesting story. “I dislike saying no to work but at times I have to. Though, as of now, less work is happening so filhal jo mil jaye wahi theek. I strongly feel TV too needs to perk up its content for character artistes too as this will surely help the show in terms improved vision and presentation (sic).”
Very recently the actor took up a show on television as he got to essay a character which was different after a long time. He said signing off, “I have been a part of socio-mytho shows before too but with Kripa Agrasen Maharaja Ki…I feel it is a good change for me as an actor (sic).”
