Paresh Rawal Biography

Paresh Rawal

Paresh Rawal

Occupation: Actor, Television producer
Years active: 1984 - Present
Spouse: Swaroop Sampat

Paresh Rawal (Gujarati: પરેશ રાવલ Pareś Rāvaḷ) (born 30 May 1950) is an Indian actor of Gujarati background.

Making his film debut in 1984, he mainly played supporting and villain roles throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Since 2000 he has mostly played comic roles.

Family and early life

Paresh was born in Paliad, Gujarat, India. He is married to Swaroop Sampat, an actress and winner of the Miss India contest in 1979. Paresh and Swaroop have two sons Aditya and Aniruddh. Paresh Rawal is an alumnus from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management and Higher Studies, Vile Parle, Mumbai. Rawal moved to Mumbai, at the age of 22. He went there to become a civil engineer. After people recognized him as a great actor, he was recommended to be in Bollywood. Today people know him as a great actor and comedian.

Career

Rawal made his debut with the 1984 film Holi. He then appeared in over 100 films throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Paresh Rawal's biggest hit was Hera Pheri.

Before he attained national recognition, in 1991 Rawal achieved recognition and adulation for his role of a bank robber in Kshana Kshanam. His quirky accent and mannerisms made him an instant hit. He acted in quite a few Telugu films by the RGV school of direction like Money and Govinda Govinda.

In 1994, he won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performances in the films Woh Chokri and Sir. For the latter, he also received his first Filmfare Award for Best Comedian. This was followed by Ketan Mehta's Sardar, which saw him playing the lead role of freedom fighter Vallabhbhai Patel, a role that got him not only national but international acclaim. He followed it with the film Tamanna (1996), in which he played the role of a Hijra (person of "third" gender, typically male transgender) who raises a young, orphaned girl, played by Pooja Bhatt.

In 2000, Rawal played a dim-witted and boisterous, but kind-hearted Marathi landlord Baburao Ganpatrao Apte in the film Hera Pheri, who takes in Raju (Akshay Kumar) and Shyam (Sunil Shetty) as paying guests in his house. Rawal's acting was a key reason for the major nationwide success the film received. For his performance, he won the Filmfare Best Comedian Award. He reprised his role as Baburao in the sequel to the film, Phir Hera Pheri (2006), which was also successful.

In 2002, Rawal portrayed one of three blind bank robbers in the hit film Aankhen. Rawal has since played many comedy roles in successful films including Awara Paagal Deewana (2002), Garam Masala (2005), Deewane Huye Pagal (2005), Malamaal Weekly (2006), Golmaal (2006), Chup Chup Ke (2006) , Bhagam Bhag (2006), Shankar Dada MBBS, Bhool Bhulaiya and Welcome and De Dana Dan (2009). In 2010, Paresh Rawal acted in Movie Aakrosh based on honour killing. He also produced Hindi Serials including Zee TV's Teen Bahuraaniyaan, and Sahara One's Main Aisi Kyunn Hoon.
