Gulshan Devaiah has delivered some of the most iconic performances as an actor. He has proved his versatility time and again with the type of roles he has picked. In honor of his birthday, that falls on 28th May, we picked seven roles that show his outstanding performance.
Gulshan made the character of a sex addict Mandar memorable through his natural performance. Although an adult comedy, Gulshan’s clarity on the character made sure that Mandar was presented aesthetically in the movie.
He plays the role of Karan Chaudhary, also known as KC, a spoiled brat who belongs to a rich family. This was one of the first movies in which Gulshan was noticed and got acclaimed as a credible actor. His portrayal of the character’s eccentric nature was what fans adored him for.
3. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela:
As Bhavani, a member of the Jadeja clan, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Gulshan proved he can convincingly portray grey characters as well. The audience loved to hate him for being one of the biggest hurdles in the love story of the lead characters.
4. Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota:
In Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, he was seen playing a double role. He plays two completely different characters – Karate Mani and Jimmy, and seeing him portray both the characters was a treat for the audience.
5. Badhaai Do:
A surprising element in the movie is Gulshan playing the role of Guru Narayan, a lawyer, who is the love interest of Rajkummar Rao’s character. His portrayal of this queer character broke all kinds of stereotypes surrounding the LGBTQ community.
6. Ghost Stories:
In this movie Gulshan was portrayed in a completely unrecognizable look. Seen in the segment directed by Dibakar Banerjee, Gulshan plays the role of a zombie monster and uses heavy prosthetics to get the right look. Although a role with a limited screen time, Gulshan was outstanding in his performance.
In Dahaad he plays Devilal Singh, a cop who is determined to catch a serial killer. He is also a family man, living in a small town in Rajasthan, and is forward thinking. Gulshan’s performance was critically acclaimed and was loved by the audience.
