The phobia of heights and a vertigo problem did not deter the good looking Anuj Sachdeva from sky diving. The actor who is hogging all the limelight with positive reviews for his strong role in the movie Hawaa Hawaai spoke to Tellychakkar.com about his recent amazing experience of trying this free fall.
“I had wanted to get this fear of heights out of my system and thus decided to go for it. I never want to regret anything in life and thus do things that I want to do. Wanting to live a life of a student in New York, I stayed there for quite some time and it was full of experiences. And sky diving has been in the list for long and having visited Dubai recently I just went ahead with it,” shared the actor.
Anuj who is known for his role in Sabki Laadli Bebo further stated, “It was scary but it was a thrill that you can’t experience every day. The excitement was worthy and totally exhilarating. I was all alone and I waited for two-three hours before actually taking the plunge. I wanted to try something different and thus made a smiley, Dream n’ Fly on my palms to show to the camera when I was falling.”
So did you manage to do all of it? With a smile, the young man revealed, “I was tongue tied and did not know what to do (laughs). When you are rushing down at more than 36 km/hour, it’s almost like a dream. But it was one of a kind experience for sure. I did manage to do a bit of my own things.”
What is next on the cards for the actor? “Scuba diving for sure, I am planning for it. The skydiving plan had been in the pipeline for long with friends, but things were not working out. So I think people should go for adventure activities alone and get done with it,” Anuj advised.
Being an adventure freak, the actor also told us that he would love to do something like Fear Factor, but for now he is enjoying the response of his film. “The team has been really supporting and we had so much fun shooting. The on screen chemistry of mine and Saquib (Saleem) has really rubbed off screen too, as I consider him as my younger brother. I actually still call him chotu,” he shared.
Going on further, Anuj added, “My role is a very interesting one with lots of shades to it. I must say it was a learning experience working with Amole (Gupte) and his team. They are just amazing. For me the kind and depth of roles matter and in future too I would love to do some serious kind of cinema. As for TV, I am hoping something interesting crops up.”
All the best for your future, Anuj!!
