Rajpal Yadav was last seen in ZEE5’s Ardh, and also played a pivotal role in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The actor recently opened up about a point in his career where his ‘luck’ started to change after he became a part of Ram Gopal Varma’s Jungle.
In conversation with Brut India, Yadav talked about how he wanted to be a part of films after he witnessed the success of a movie called Satya, which starred J. D. Chakravarthy, Urmila Matondkar and Manoj Bajpayee. He recalled how there were a few production houses frequented by theatre actors in the hopes of getting a job. One among them was Ram Gopal Varma’s. Yadav had gotten a call from Gopal’s office for a meeting and the filmmaker had told the actor about a part in Jungle. The character was that of a henchman in a gang, and Varma offered Yadav the role.
The actor spoke about how much recognition and love he got for portraying the character called Sippa. But despite that, Yadav was worried about not finding any work. His luck started to change when he won the Screen award for Best Negative Actor in 2001. “That award brought me so much luck, that I signed 16 movies within one month," he said. Jungle also starred Suniel Shetty, Urmila Matondkar and Fardeen Khan. the film can be watched on Youtube.
Yadav will next be seen in the Imtiaz Ali production Thai Massage, in which he will share the screen with Gajraj Rao and Divyenndu Sharma. The slice of life film, written and directed by Mangesh Hadawale, will be released on August 26, 2022.
