He speaks through his eyes, he is someone who has always given his roles an edge and he is someone who has a terrific screen presence; well, we are talking about Gaurav Sharama, who is a powerhouse performer.
Being from an army background to a family that boasts of electrical and mechanical engineers, Gaurav’s decision of taking up acting as a profession was not an easy one.
After finishing his studies in an army school, he started working in a call center, but then gave it all up as he wanted to become an actor. Since then, Gaurav Sharma has come a long way.
Year 2009, Gaurav came to Mumbai to pursue his passion for acting, but then things were not as easy it always seems like. Form one audition to another, one production to another, Gaurav did all that he could do.
During all of this, he never lost hope, neither did he stop trying and his journey to stardom began in the year 2010 with Jamunia.
Jamunia ended abruptly, but Gaurav never lost hope as he believed in his talent. What followed were shows like Phulwa, Mahima Shanidev Ki, Chandragupta Maurya and Sasural Simar Ka.
Yes, there was work, but none that could actually tap the hidden talent in him. However, things changed for Gaurav the day he entered Diya Aur Baati Hum on Star Plus.
In Diya Aur Baati Hum, he essayed the role of Raj Kumar, an innocent boy who ends up being a terrorist. Now this one made everyone take notice of his talent and I must say a star was born.
Gaurav gave Raj Kumar a razor sharp edge and one could see a performer in him.
Post his tract ended, one expected him to wait for a bigger an better role, but then Gaurav shocked us with Naadaaniyaan – Teen Nadaanon Ki Kahaani, where he essayed the role of Pushkar Verma (Pappu) on Big Magic. One even saw him Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka.
Guess for him, it was more important to keep working, rather than waiting for something big. An attitude that speaks volumes about the person he his.
You don’t always win your battles, but it’s good to know that you fought; that’s what Gaurav Sharma is all about.
Currently one can see him in Dream Girl on Life OK.
Here’s wishing him all the best for a great career ahead.
