Sahil Vaid On Being Typecast As ‘Hero Ka Dost’, Says Vikrant Massey ‘Got Lucky’

After giving commendable performances in films like ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ ‘Dil Bechara’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, actor Sahil Vaid was recently seen in the film ‘Shershaah’. However, the one thing common in most of his films is that Sahil played the role of the main lead’s friend aka hero ka dost.

While one might think that Sahil Vaid has been typecast, the actor thinks differently. Speaking to Times Now, he said that he is “tired” of playing the same kind of roles.

“I do not think I have been typecast, I have a lot more to give. It is a question for the producers and directors of our industry if they want to experiment with me. I am tired of playing the same kinds of roles.”

He said that even though he plays ‘hero ka dost’ in every film, he makes sure every character is different. He added that if he doesn’t do so and rejects films, he will stop getting work.

“Even if it is the hero ka dost again I make it a point that the guy is different. But I do not have any other way to keep myself in the movies. If I keep saying no to everything that comes to me people will probably forget me and won’t even remember there was an actor called Sahil Vaid. And then years will go by and I wouldn’t have anything to do with movies. I am kind of scared of that and so I keep going back to the movies, try doing small roles but different kinds of roles.”

Sahil expressed that he isn’t as “lucky” as actors like Vikrant Massey and Abhishek Banerjee. Hindustan Times quoted him saying:

“I have not been as lucky as my contemporaries like say Vikrant Massey and even Abhishek Banerjee. They have got good opportunities. Even Divyendu Sharma was experimented with in Mirzapur and he did a fabulous job. I think I have it in me. I am just kind of waiting for somebody to just see that I am more of a wholesome actor than just comedic relief.”

We hope that Sahil Vaid gets the projects he deserves!
