Harish Sharma, Andres Iniesta, Claudia Ciesla
Mumbai, Jan 16, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio) If your luck runs high and you work dedicatedly towards your goal then there is no stopping you. It is not just luck but also his dedication that has taken PRO Harish Sharma to new heights.
Last year in December, Sharma released his directorial debut film “2 Nights in Soul Valley” and at the start of this year Sharma flew to Spain for a Calendar Photo shoot and video with world’s best Football player Andres Iniesta. This is when Luck strikes gold!
When Rajbir Singh, MD of Aska Beverages saw a few scenes of Sharma’s film he asked Sharma to direct the calendar shoot which was scheduled for 9th January with Model-actress Claudia Ciesla and Andres Iniesta. After returning from Spain Sharma spelt his experience of shooting with Iniesta, “The man is simply down to earth! For an international player’s stature you would expect that he will have bodyguards and bouncers for security but it wasn’t like that. He was alone when he came to greet us.”
Sharma further adds, “Initially we were given a particular time span for the shoot but it so happened that the shoot had to be extended beyond that time span. But still Iniesta showed no star tantrums that you usually expect in such cases. Instead he told us if we needed more of his time he’d be willing to wait back and shoot!”
Talking about her experience of shooting with Iniesta, Claudia said, “It was an opportunity of lifetime for me, working with Andres and meeting him was fun!”
During the shoot Sharma invited Iniesta to India but owing to his busy schedule he declined the invitation.
However, after Sharma and his team touched India, the very next day Rajbir received a mail from Iniesta’s management confirming the acceptance of invitation on part of Iniesta.
Iniesta’s visit to India will be a boost to Indian Football lovers and football players.
Sources confirm that Iniesta will be here only for two days yet is keen to see Taj Mahal, Delhi and may be football city Kolkata. Iniesta is likely to fly to India this June. “I hope I will manage to fulfill his wishes,” said Rajbir.
