Sharad Kelkar

Sharad Kelkar is one of the most talented actors that we have today in the industry. From television to films to the ever-expanding digital space, the actor has showcased his talent everywhere.

Apart from acting, Kelkar has also proved his mettle as a dubbing artist. If you have seen the Hindi dubbed versions of S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) and Baahubali: The Conclusion (2017), you would clearly remember that it was Sharad who dubbed for Prabhas’ voice in both instalments of the franchise.

Talking about his Bollywood career, the actor entered films with Vikram Bhatt’s horror flick 1920: Evil Returns (2012), where he was seen playing the evil spirit. Over the years, the actor has played negative characters in a number of movies, including Bhoomi (2017) and the recently released Housefull 4 (2019).

When asked if he is at all worried about being typecast as an actor who mostly takes up villainous roles, Sharad Kelkar tells a popular newswire, “I am not worried about being typecast as a villain because it is the other thing the industry needs. Until and unless there is a villain there cannot be a hero. So, I am happy with that space.”

The actor, who recently made his digital debut with Amazon Prime Video’s original The Family Man (2019), says that he wants to grow as an actor and that playing a villain in fun. “I want to grow, so I want different kind of roles and thankfully I am getting… I am not very insecure. I am not tired of playing the villain as such, but yes, I need a change. In between I do projects in different roles. But playing a villain is fun.”

Sharad goes on to add that the audience will get to see him in different roles ahead. “For an actor doing a different kind of roles is very important, so you will see me in different avatars. Last time I did The Family Man. People appreciated that character. There is Housefull 4 where I played a negative character. Then there is Tanhaji… and Rangbaaz 2. There is one more series. I am trying to do different roles and I hope people like me in different avatars,” he says in conclusion.
