He gained fame thanks to his role as Robin in Mirzapur 2. He was also the original Bhavesh Joshi in Bhavesh Joshi: Superhero. We are talking about Priyanshu Painyuli, who has slowly yet steadily made his name known in Bollywood.

The actor has been part of various short films, including Whistling Woods' production Bawri. However, he has also worked in more popular films and web shows.

Here are a few of them...


Painyuli played the role of a drug lord in Dhaka, Bangladesh, named Amir Asif. He was seen conflicting with the character of Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) in the film.


Extraction is the story of a black-market mercenary with nothing to lose being hired to rescue the son of an international drug lord. The drug lord, Ovi Mahajan Sr. (Pankaj Tripathi) is currently imprisoned, which is how Rake comes into the picture.

The movie can be streamed on Netflix in India.

Bang Baaja Baaraat

In Bang Baaja Baaraat, Painyuli was seen in the role of Wasim Shaikh. He played Pawan Sharma (Ali Fazal)'s childhood friendhood, who is now also his brother-in-law.

Bang Baaja Baaraat was the story of Pawan and Sahana (Angira Dhar), who are trying to get married. However, their families' ideologies do not meet. Moreover, the family has complexities within itself and even outside them.

The web show is available on YouTube.

Rock On 2

In Rock On 2, the actor played the role of Jiah Sharma (Shraddha Kapoor)'s brother.

The sequel of Rock On was the story of a band (including Jiah) coming together despite all difficulties in their individual lives.

Unfortunately, Rock On 2 is not available for streaming yet.

Once Again

Painyuli plays the role of a widowed restaurant owner Tara Shetty (Shefali Shah)'s son Dev in Once Again.

The film is based on accidental calls between Shetty and an isolated film actor Amar Kumar (Neeraj Kabi).

What happens, when they decide to meet each other, makes up for the rest of the story.

Once Again can be viewed on Netflix India.


In Upstarts, the actor plays the role of a college graduate named Kapil.

The movie, like the title suggests, is based on three friends who are now college graduates. They set on to make their entrepreneurship dreams come true.

Upstarts can be streamed on Netflix India.

Love in the time of corona

Painyuli was seen in the role of Prithvi in Anand Iyer's segment from Love in the time of corona.


His story was based on closure. Prithvi gets a call from his ex-girlfriend out of the blue. He opens up about having a tough time coping with the breakup. Prithvi even mentioned that he underwent six months of therapy.

Love in the time of corona is available on Disney+Hotstar.
