Actor Sandeep Anand celebrated Shivaji Jayanti at Pune - which used to be the administrative headquarters of the Maratha empire. The actor who has donned the hat of a director for the first time, also promoted his short film 'Method Acting Ka Bhoot' here to the youth audiences in the colleges of Pune.
Speaking on the occasion Sandeep said `It was an absolute pleasure to be in the Maratha heartland on the occasion of Shivaji Jayanti. I have heard of stories of the brave warrior king right from my childhood. I was amazed by the way Shivaji carved out an empire by engaging in hostilities from Mughals and European colonial powers. The way he established a competent and progressive civil rule and administrative organisations in those times is commendable. In fact, I got interested and learned to ride a horse only after knowing and reading about Shivaji. I personally feel that a king like him is very much required now in the current state of our society.`
Sandeep's short film has won many awards and one award was also conferred to him here in Pune a couple of months back. `Pune has a special place in my heart. One because the city has a sizeable student population and students and youth are the best judges of content these days - it is also known as Oxford of the East for the same reason. I love talking to them and understanding what they would like to see. The city also has a sizeable population of overseas students and it is very good to have an international perspective as well. I believe content creators should always have an ear to the ground` said Sandeep.
The actor who was last seen in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai when asked as to when will his fans get to see him again on television said, `I am contemplating a few offers that allow me to portray on screen something that I have never done before. The moment it gets finalised, I will be the first to announce it. I am also looking forward to being a part of good OTT content.` Sandeep who began his career with Sun Yaar Chill Maar has been one of the most loved television actors known for his various characters in FIR and May I come in Madam. Coming from a theatre background, Sandeep started acting at the age of seven
