Another Version Of Sameer Sharma
Mega serials like “
Hum Log” and “
Buniyaad” are considered to be the forerunners for the introduction of TV “soap” in the Indian context. However, it was not until the advent of satellite television did the real “soaps” dealing with the now oft repeated Saas Bahu themes, took over the maximum of television space. In that sense, Samir Sharma can be described as one of the “pioneers” of the initial days of the Saas-Bahu theme, appearing as he did in two of the most famous and longest running TV serials, “Kahani Ghar Ghar Ke” and “Saas Bhi Kabhi Thi”, both of which used to run on Star Plus, hogging a lot of TRP.
The starting of Samir’s career was quite an interesting one, as he moved over to Bangalore once he had finished his studies from his native Delhi, only to take up work for an ad agency, but then shifting into a mainstream career with an IT company there. But perhaps his penchant for showing his mettle in the entertainment and glamour industry was always there, which may have made him try his hand as a radio jockey with Radio City, while in Bangalore. His graduation into TV serials was however not with Star Plus, but with its affiliate channel Star One, where he played the role of Nitin in “Dil Kya Chahta Hai”.
Having acted in various roles on almost all the popular channels, he had the opportunity to show his versatility in the role of an army captain in “Left right Left”, that of a hockey coach in “
Veeranwali” and also as the typical handsome bachelor in the role he portrayed in “Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki”. This, incidentally, has been one of his other longest running shows. The host of successful TV serials had already given Samir a prominence, and it could not have been too late before he landed himself into movies. However he had to wait for this till 2014, to get his first break in the reasonably successful “Hansi to Phansi” in 2014.
