  • He is very fond of Gujarati culture. Talking about this during an interview, he said,

    I give a lot of credit to my Gujarati roots for the purity in my art. I feel that in Gujarati culture children are taught the importance of etiquette, perhaps more so than I have seen in other cultures. Emphasis is laid on respecting one’s elders and the importance of their presence in one’s life. Apart from this aspect, Gujarati people are very passionate about their festivals. Also, as a Gujarati, I don’t think our personality is complete without food. And my love for Gujarati cuisine remains intact because of my mother’s cooking.”

  • In his spare time he likes to travel and read books.

  • Sharman follows a non-vegetarian diet. Talking about this in an interview he said,

    I am a ‘corrupt’ Gujarati Brahmin, who has eaten non-vegetarian food all my life. I’ve tried it all – grasshoppers, earthworms, crocodile meat. Although I don’t have any real cravings, I do like to eat Chinese or Thai food from time to time.”

  • In 2018, during one of his interviews, he shared that he was dropped from the sequel of the Hindi film ‘Golmaal Fun Unlimited’ (2006) over the salary hike issue. He said,

    The producers “kicked me out” from the Golmaal series after negotiations to increase the remuneration were not successful. I think there was some communication between my manager and the producers in the second part. And I couldn’t be a part of it.”

    He continued,

    My manager was talking. I think some people’s egos got bruised and the result was that I couldn’t do the film. Before that happened, I actually made a request that I would still like to be a part of the film. I said there were conversations going on…he was trying his best for me as a manager. He was trying to negotiate as best he could. But I said, there is no need to come to this. But I think it was too late by then, he had to move forward with his choice which I understand and respect.
