Arshad Warsi – the serio-comic hero of bollywood.
Arshad Warsi had established himself as the most elegant serio-comic heroes of recent times. As he had the potential to play the lead role he is not a comedian in the strict sense like Johnny Lever, and had been sublime mainly in roles where he supported the main hero of the film.
The viewers know him best as Circuit, he character he played in Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai. In both the films he was the assistant of Sanjay Dutt who was an underworld don, but had been involved in good activities. In Lage Raho Munnabhai, he even talked to an invisible character when Sanjay had asked him to address Gandhiji, who was there in his subconscious mind. He even brought the academicians to answer the questions relating to Gandhiji. He gave good lips also in the song “lage raho munabhai”.
He had shown that people can be entertained not by overt mannerisms but natural acting. He had done very well in Hulchul with Akshay Khanna and Kareena Kapoor. He was the friend of Akshay Khanna and advised him to continue his acting to convince Kareena that he likes her. Both Akshay and Kareena had family enmity and as such the family members were hostile towards the other family. Arshad Warsi even got beaten upthe family members of both Kareena and Akshay during the film, for misunderstandings. At the end of the film, the acting turned into reality and ended in the marriage of Akshay and Kareena.
The natural performance of Arshad Warsi had added flavour in Salaam Namaste with Saif Ali Khan and Preeti Zinta. He was the lawyer friend of Saif Ali and advised him to hurl words at Preeti who was a radio jockey and destroyed the hotel business of Saif Ali who had specialised in cooking quality dishes in a restaurant in Australia. While helping Saif Ali, Arshad Warsi entered into an affair with a local girl and got married. His entire performance was highly entertaining.
He even entertained the audience with his brilliant performance in the film Golmaal, along with Ajay Devgan, Tushar Kapoor and others. He entered the house of Paresh Rawal and his wife, who were blind and pretended to be their relative and enjoyed their hospitality. All the friends, four of them took turns and told lies one after the other to Paresh Rawal. With the success of other hit films like Shyam Ghanshyam, he has a steady box office these days. The viewers expect better performance from him in the new films.
