He said after flying high career-wise, his overconfidence got better of him. “I was a boy who was 110 kg, a radio jockey in Indore when I participated in a talent show and won. Then I went back to the radio and later acting happened. I had this confidence, to the point of being overconfident that I can do anything. I was wrong and I think life decided to teach me a lesson,” he told the news portal
He said further, “You need to be grounded and life taught me that when my show Kuldeepak got over suddenly my money got stuck." Financially it was problem.
Shardul also underwent several health problems after he took steroids for a role. “At that time, every bad thing that could happen to a person happened to me. I was prepping up for a web show in which I was supposed to do intimate scenes, so I had to go on steroids. I went wrong. At the same time, I was going through a financial crunch,” he said.
On his financial crisis, Shardul said, “I a point where I was too ashamed to meet anybody because people would call me to watch a movie but I was like if I spend 350 on this movie, what do I do next? I had no money to buy my medicines."
