Saurabh Shukla is one of the most sought after actors in the industry and for good reason too. He is incredibly talented and has proven the same time and again in varied roles. Having delivered performances across genres, he has captured innumerable hearts with his comic roles.
The National Award-winning actor's talent is not limited to acting; he is also a producer, writer and director. His career and writing breakthrough was when he won the Star Screen Award for Best Screenplay for Ram Gopal Verma's Satya along with Anurag Kashyap. Many commendable performances then followed. He has been a part of more than 80 movies now playing different kind of characters yet he is loved the most for the times he made us laugh out loud. Recently, he was seen in Jolly LLB 2 and he had us rolling on the floor laughing. Check out seven of his funniest performances:
Saurabh Shukla won a National Film Award for best Supporting Actor for the 2013-released Jolly LLB. In both films, his role as Justice Tripathi has been epic. His body language, dialogue delivery and even dance moves were absolutely on point.
Shukla as Lacchu Mama, the young at heart uncle was the cutest member of the family.
Remember the manager who didn't recruit anybody without a bribe? How he dealt with the tricks and conspiracy of Chantu and Bantu was plain hilarious.
Remember the boss Dasgupta who couldn't stop eating? Or ranting? He was sure irritating but certainly, funny. Vinay Pathak and Saurabh Shukla were brilliant together.
Barfi is a film close to many hearts. Shukla played the role of a policeman. Apart from all the fun he had onscreen, the best part was his hair and the way he flicked them with that smirk.
In Gang of Ghosts, Shukla played a Bengali ghost Bhoothnath Bhaduri, who entered the gang by telling his story of homelessness after death and the shelter issues in Bombay. Every Mumbaikar could relate to his home and space issues.
The broke Maharaja Braj Singhdeo who offered everyone fine liquor instead of water made us laugh a little too much. In this story where water was the new currency, he added the much needed fun in the movie.
We wish him a very happy birthday and await his next epic movie.
