He wants to be a part of both film and modelling worlds for a few more years
Sahil Shroff surprised everyone when he bagged a role in Don 2. The model has been appreciated a lot for his work on the ramp and in television commercials but as several others will tell you, it’s not easy to make the switch from modelling to cinema. The debutant may not have much screen time in Don 2, but as someone who is in love with Roma (Priyanka Chopra) and is helping her catch Don, Sahil’s character has enough substance to satisfy him. However, Sahil is clear he isn’t giving up modelling for films. He said in a recent interview that he will continue to straddle both worlds for another five years or so till he is able to really explore his capabilities as an actor. Modelling, he says, gives him a high. Looks like Sahil has more sense than his predecessors Milind Soman, Arjun Rampal and John Abraham. Milind is yet to make it big, while it took Arjun seven years and 20 films to prove his mettle and win a National Film Award for Rock On!! John Abraham’s route to stardom was slightly easier as his very first film Jism was a hit, but it’s seen more downs than ups since then. All three of them are not known to be good actors. Hopefully, Sahil will have better luck. Do you think he has potential? Tell us!
