As the world celebrates the artistry and essence of theatre on World Theatre Day 2024, actor Karanvir Sharma takes a moment to reminisce about his journey from the stage to the silver screen. With notable roles in films, OTT and television that Karanvir has forayed into, his career trajectory underscores the importance of theatrical roots in shaping an actor’s craft.

Reflecting on his initial foray into theatre, Sharma recalls seeking guidance from the legendary Mr. Alyque Padamsee. “My theatre experience was truly humbling,” he shares. “From handling props backstage to ensuring artists were on time, every aspect contributed to my growth as an actor. I firmly believe that every actor should delve into the world of theatre at least once in their career.”

“On World Theatre Day, I urge everyone to cherish and support theatre as fervently as they do movies and OTT content. Performing in theatre demands unparalleled precision and spontaneity, as there are no retakes,” he concludes.
