What is a leading role? Of course, it is one that leads the key story. All right, then what is a featured role? It creates different situations for the previous one. We all know Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Jeremy Irons, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Kangana Ranaut, and Anupam Kher and so on. All of them are famous leading role characters. But, today we are going to talk about a famous featured role character. He is none other than Bharat Mistri. He is an actor, especially an UK based and very much interested in appearing in feature films. Now, here comes a question. What is more important- a leading role or a featured role? Of course, that is a difficult question because the success of a film depends on both of them. So, we will not go into that discussion but it is true that usually, feature roles remain more memorable to us.
It is our usual tendency to love the supporting role character more quickly than a leading role. However, let’s come to the main topic. Bharat Mistri is not only an actor, but a supporting artist and model too. He has always been a reliable person who loves to be punctual in his profession. His immense contribution to his work appeals to us. He has spent his time in commercial advertisements also. Not only that, in music videos, short films, theatres, and has also spent valuable time in the Bollywood industry. He is a beginner in the modelling profession. He is also an amateur photographer and has a little experience in film and stage crew also. In so many movies, he has played important roles. He acted as Yashvardhan Richand’s secretary in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001)’ which won Filmfare awards for Best Actress, Supporting Actress, Best Dialogue, and Art Direction. Moreover, it won the awards of the International Indian Film Academy for best Costume Designer, Background Score, Sound Re-recording, and Best Make-up also.
He was the Pilot in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012)’ which won Filmfare Awards for Favourite Actor (Shahrukh Khan), Best Supporting Actress (Anushka Sharma), Best Lyrics (to Gulzar for the Punjabi song Challa). He played as the Executive Officer in the movie ‘Cuban Fury (2014)’ which won the ‘World Soundtrack Award’ in 2014. Daniel Pemberton was the Discovery of the Year for ‘The Counselor.’ He was the Boardroom Member in ‘Lilly (2013)’. In ‘The Hooligan Factory (2014)’, he acted as a Solicitor. He was the Pub Punter in ‘Top Dog (2014)’ which is a great film directed by Aaron Norris and produced by Andy Howard about terrorism. It released at a bad time, only after nine days of ‘Oklahoma City Bombing’ because of which it faced so much criticism. Bharat was the Asylum Patient in ‘Humshakals (2014)’, the Investment Banker in ‘Breaking the Bank (2014)’ which is a comedy film.
He has acted in some TV series also such as ‘CIA Declassified’, ‘The Royals’, ‘Ancient Black Ops’ and many others. Besides this, he has played important featured roles in ‘Art Ache (2015)’, ‘Everest (2015)’, etc. ‘Everest’ released on 18th September and was directed by Baltasar Kormákur. Its tagline was ‘Never let go.’ Some others are ‘Containment (2015),’ ‘Welcome to Karachi (2015),’ ‘Walking on Sunshine (2014)’ etc. Now let’s come to his self-works, he is a Fitness Class Attendee in ‘Desi Rascals (2015)’ which is a TV series documentary. Another one is ‘Saints and Scroungers (2013),’ where he is the Judge. One interesting thing about Bharat Mistri is that he works in the TV commercial for Tollyboy Basmati Rice also. Throughout his whole life, he remained as a man full of positive attitude. Till now, he is a very hard working, very straight and dreams for acting featured role character in more and more movies.
