Arshad Warsi’s hit parade

Yesterday was Arshad Warsi’s birthday. He was born on April 19, 1968 in Mumbai. He lost his parents at the age of 14. He initiated his career as a salesman in cosmetic goods. His passion for dance made him a part of a dancing group. Arshad is married to Maria Goretti and they have a son, named Zeke Zidaan Warsi and daughter Zene Warsi.

He might be one of the finest actors in Bollywood with an impeccable comic timing, but actor Arshad Warsi, whose last super hit was ‘Ishqiya’, says he didn’t dream of becoming an actor.

"I never wanted to be an actor. I was also terrible in business, so I didn't want to be a businessman either. I was interested in choreography.

But now after spending 16 years in the industry I think people have accepted me and I am a decent actor now," says Arshad, who started his career with 'Tere Mere Sapne' in 1996.

Arshad, who not only made the character of ‘Circuit’ in 'Munnabhai MBBS' and its sequel 'Lage Raho Munnabhai' very popular and was instrumental in making the film a big success thanks to his comic timing and display of emotions, says, he never tried to do anything different to get into focus.

"I never tried anything out of the way. For me, It has always been being in the right place at the right time. Now I'm getting a variety of roles and things are looking good,”he says.

Arshad, who has done a variety of comic roles in films like 'Sunday,' 'Golmal,' 'Dhamaal,' the Munna Bhai films etc, says he would like to portray a grey character with lots of shades but feels that the Hindi industry doesn't produce enough films with such roles and so naturally his choices are limited.

Bollywood produces a lot of comedy films. About 80 per cent films are comedy while the remaining are films that are non-comedy. So naturally the choice is limited.

If one has to zero in on a shady or grey character which suits his taste, he has less options to choose from, he says.

However, Arshad says he is looking forward to such a role. "I really want to do some serious and complex roles like my characters in 'Seher' and Ishqiya.

I listen to a number of stories on a regular basis. Although, I haven't come across anything like that, I hope to do such a role soon," he says.

Arshad, who has essayed the role of a 'tapori' and a police officer with equal ease says his bag is full as he has a number of releases lined up for 2012 like ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ which is a sequel to ‘Ishqiya’ with Naseeruddin Shah and Kangana Ranaut, ‘Munnabhai Chale Amerika’, ‘Unusual Love Story’, ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’, etc. “I am keeping my fingers crossed. Do wish me luck”, he says.
