HiPi StarHunt: Aasif Sheikh Recalls Auditioning For Theatre While His Dad Wasn’t Talking To Him
Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai actor Aasif Sheikh recalled the lengthy procedure of his first audition process and talked about his early days as an actor, in a HiPi video.
Actor Aasif Sheikh, who plays the role of Vibhuti in the popular daily soap Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai, had a very tough time when he decided to join the entertainment industry. Aasif recalled his journey while talking about ZEE5’s new short video platform, HiPi, which is the part of the ZEE5 app itself. HiPi irecently introduced the StarHunt which is a golden opportunity for everyone who wants to pursue a career in the field of acting. The lucky ones will get an opportunity to feature in ZEE5’s Original shows, Jamai 2.0 Season 2 and Sunflower. Here’s what Aasif had to say about his journey.
In his video, he said, “They say, first love and first audition is always remembered. It all began for me when I was auditioning for Hum Log. The show’s media casting was done and they had published an advertisement in the newspaper for the rest of the team’s casting. My father wasn’t talking to me as I had left studies and joined the theatre and he was very upset. He saw the ad in the newspaper and asked my mother to request me to give the audition.”
Aasif spoke about how he prepped himself for the audition and said, “I wore my clothes and left for an audition. The moment I entered I saw hundreds of boys and girls and all were smart, looking good, smelling nice, and were dressed up in good clothes. I realised there were so many people and I’ll wait for a half-hour to see if I get the chance to perform. In sometime, someone called me, and I went for my audition. When I went in, I was super scared as there were many people sitting at the table, writers, directors and so many. I didn’t know what to do. They asked me to enact a scene and I had no clue what I did for those few minutes. I got very nervous and left the place. Though I did not have any hopes, I got a call in the evening that I was selected.” Sheikh mentioned that the bottom line is to be confident and one has to have self-belief. He also asked fans to not underestimate themselves.
