“I left a job offer from America to pursue a career in acting”, says Shakti Anand
From cooking to acting, dancing and competing, we have seen all the entertaining shades of our favourite television stars on COLORS’ Kitchen Champion. Giving the viewers an insight about their life and taking up the cooking challenge in the upcoming episode will be Shakti Anand and Sharad Kelkar along with their wives Sai Deodhar and Kirti Kelkar.
Being a perfect host for the show, Arjun Bijlani leaves no stone unturned to entertain our audience with his quirky challenges for his guests. Amidst the cooking, Shakti Anand revealed that he is actually a pharmaceutical engineer which left everybody surprised since not a lot of people knew this fact. Arjun then curiously asked him why he chose acting over engineering as a profession.
Replying to Arjun, Shakti Anand said, “I am a pharmaceutical engineer and I have also worked in that field. But in college, I developed an interest in theatre, and acted in a lot of plays. After a point, I started giving auditions too while I was working as an engineer. When my company offered me the opportunity to shift to America for work, at the same time I got a call from Mumbai informing that I was shortlisted for a show. It was a golden opportunity for me to pursue my passion, so I decided not to go to America and came to Mumbai instead.”
