Deepak Dobriyal, who has played many significant roles in the past decade and is a known name in Bollywood, is coming back on screen as lead this time. There's no denying about Dobriyal's versatility. He has played comic, negative and creepy characters and each one of them stood out in the movie regardless of the number of people sharing his screen space.
Just when we thought he cannot get any better, he is coming back with a biopic and the trailer is extremely engaging.
As we curiously wait for this movie, here are some of the roles that earned him a place in everyone's hearts:
Right from his debut in Omkara, Deepak convinced everyone that he can act. He was so satisfied with his acting that he took a break of a year after the movie.
Dabangg 2 (2012)
Dabangg is all about quirks and even the villains of the Dabangg series have certain peculiarities. Keeping the legacy of Dabangg-style names, Dobriyal played the role of Genda, the local goon, who was obsessed by a girl and tries to abduct her during her marriage.
Tanu Weds Manu (2011)
Who doesn't know Pappi? While he effortlessly asks his crush "leke bataye ya deke?" when asked about his name, he also gives love advice to Manu, his friend. He is indeed one of the characters without whom we cannot think of the movie.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015)
When Pappi returned, it was even more entertaining and fun. Remember when he asked Manu "Tum kya Salman Khan ho ki tumhe commitment issues hain?", he did it with such conviction that it would have made Sallu bhai smile too. He is such a gem.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015)
Standing beside the charmer Salman Khan, Dobriyal managed to grab attention to his character with his quirks and comedy. He knows how to play a best friend immensely well.
Hindi Medium (2017)
This movie shows him as a poor yet ethical man. Some of his scenes from Hindi Medium will crack you up and some will make you feel sad for him. He makes you feel two extreme emotions like a piece of cake.
His latest venture where he shares the screen with the very talented Vijay Raaz is a treat to watch. Both of them complement each other. Their camaraderie is to die for and it is them who make the movie worth a watch.
His latest movie Kuldip Patwal: I Didn't Do It revolves around him, where he is thrown into jail on suspicion of a murder. Now the question is – whether he would be able to survive the entrapment or is he actually guilty?
