In an interview with IANS, Sanjay Mishra spoke about his character in his recent release Vadh co-starring Neena Gupta and his emotional connection with the film. The name of his character in the film is Shambhunath Mishra, his father's name.
"The name of my character is the same as my father's -- Shambhunath Mishra and that's something that makes it special for me. Also, the film presents a story of how old people are left to fend for themselves with their children living afar. That was a very interesting space for me to explore as an actor."
Talking about his choice of roles in films, "I always try to make an effort to keep a healthy mix of roles for the screen. It is evident in my choices like Golmaal (2006), Ankhon Dekhi (2013), All the Best (2009), Masaan (2015) and even my two recent and upcoming films -- Cirkus and Vadh". He further mentioned: "I don't want to bore the viewers and myself by doing similar kinds of work. Variety toh honi chaahiye na life mein (variety is always good to have in life)."
