Bollywood has produced some of the most diverse talents in the world of entertainment. Whereas most often people think of the “superstars” when it comes to Indian cinema, there is a plethora of actors who have played a myriad of roles on screen and beyond whom have captivated audiences for years with their acting chops. These actors have long commanded the audience’s respect, and whenever they play a role, not only is success guaranteed, but so are a multitude of awards and immeasurable critical acclaim.
One such multi-talented actor is the inimitable Saurabh Shukla who, besides being an actor, is a celebrated writer and theater personality as well.
