Critically acclaimed Saurabh Shukla says he is a reluctant actor and a lethargic writer. "I am a reluctant actor but lethargic writer. So, it is a difficult process for me," Saurabh said at a session on the second day of 9th Jagran Film Festival.
"I shy away from writing... And I initially wanted to decline Satya, but got convinced due to my role of Kallu Mama," he added.
The actor-writer spoke about the Ram Gopal Varma film at a panel discussion of recollection and the celebration of 20 years of Satya. "Satya was one of my earlier work. It is a flawless film. We didn't make a bad film," he said, adding that he doesn't look for loopholes in his work.
Saurabh Shukla was recently seen in Sudhir Mishra's Daas Dev and blockbuster Raid, starring Ajay Devgn.
On a related note, Satya, featuring J.D. Chakravarthy, Manoj Bajpayee, Urmila Matondkar, Saurabh and Shefali Shah, tells the story of organised crime in India. It went on to become a hit. There was a sequel also made Satya 2, but it tanked at the box office.
