Mumbai film industry most hardworking: Sharat Saxena

New Delhi, March 19 - Well-known character actor Sharat Saxena, last seen in "Bodyguard" as Salman Khan's boss, says the Hindi film industry is the most hardwroking in a risky business.

"Mumbai film industry is the most hardworking industry. We have good movies churned out every year. Making a film for the entire country is a risky business," Sharat told IANS.

The 61-year old has worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Punjabi, Hindi and English films.

Highlighting the differences between Hindi and regional movies, he said: "With regional films, there is a less amount of risk involved because people watching those films have similar interests, similar likes and dislikes. Regional films are made for a particular region where heroes are worshiped and have their temples."

"But with a Hindi film it is a different story. It is released across India and when it is appreciated all over, then only it is termed as a hit. A Hindi film has to cater to the tastes of people all over."

Sharat started his career in the early 1970s and mainly played supporting roles of a father, uncle or a villain. He starred in some of the most successful films of Bollywood like "Mr India", "Tridev", "Ghayal", "Khiladi", "Gupt: The Hidden Truth", "Soldier", "Baghban", "Fanaa" and "Krrish".

Now, Sharat is geared up for director Jagdish Rajpurohit's directorial debut "Bumboo", a remake of French hit "L'Emmerduer".

The story revolves around a bumbling professional hit man, a stock market scamster, a press photographer, a policeman, a psychiatrist, a bell boy, a failed suicide attempt and a chain of hilarious events that go out-of-control when one mistake leads to another and best laid plans go awry.

Sharat will be seen as a hitman who is unbeatable.

"It is the best role in my 40-year long career. I play a hit man who is the best and no one is compared to him. The film is not a comedy. It is about four characters who have their own tragedies that will seem funny and comic to the audience," he said.
