Anjumm Sharma, whose cinematic journey started with the Oscar winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, has evolved into one of the industry’s most sought-after talents. Having worked extensively in theatre, the actor went on to play substantial role in ‘Wazir’ alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar.
Anjumm made a successful transition into the digital space and made a mark as an actor in the hit series ‘Mirzapur.’ Now, as fans eagerly await the third season of the popular series, Anjumm is gearing up to share the screen with the stunning actress Mouni Roy in Milan Luthria’s ‘Sultan of Delhi.’
While working on the show, Anjumm found not just a co-star but also a friend in Mouni Roy. On the occasion of Mouni’s birthday, Anjumm shared some fascinating insights about their bond during the show.
Anjumm explained, ““In the midst of shooting action sequences and other intense scenes extensively in ‘Sultan Of Delhi’, working with Mouni was the sweetest experience for me on the show. She brings so much fun, warmth and humility with her. With the kind of work experience she has behind her, she is professional, dedicated and spontaneous as an actor.”
“We (he and Mouni) shot a number of scenes together and every time our off-screen friendship grew stronger. Often our areas of conversation off screen used to be movies, philosophy, food, fitness and travel. She has a tremendous presence which was accentuated with her costumes in the show which made her look beautiful and elegant. She had found a deep connection in her portrayal of Nayantara, her character in the show,” he adds.
Recalling a memorable incident from the set, Anjumm shared, “One day, while shooting at a location filled with parrots, the ambience and the sound of the parrots added a layer of charm and beauty to the scene. As we delivered our lines, the background was filled with the sounds of these parrots.”
“Director Milan Luthria pays exceptional attention to detail,” Anjumm added. “We had to shoot a scene at sunset, so Mouni and I rehearsed it earlier in the day at the same location with Milan sir. When the golden hour arrived, we performed the scene seamlessly. There are more beautiful sequences we’ve shot, and I’m excited to share them once the show is released,” he concluded.
Anjumm Shharma’s camaraderie with Mouni behind the scenes promises to bring an extra layer of chemistry to ‘Sultan of Delhi,’ further igniting anticipation among fans for this exciting project.
