Rahul Bhat Hindi Actor

Rahul Bhat

Actor Rahul Bhat got noticed for his talent with his third film ‘Ugly’. This actor made his career in the glamour world as a good-looking model. For his good looks, he was considered to play a lead character in TV serial ‘Heena’. ‘Ugly’ was a film of veteran filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. The film was showcased even in an International film festival and had got rave reviews. Before making his screen presence felt in Ugly, the actor was seen in two more films earlier, “Yeh Mohabbat Hai” and “Nayee Padosan”. Both the films did not bring any credit to this actor. So he took a long sabbatical from films. After a gap of eight years, he came back to the silver screen through Ugly. The actor never wanted to get over-exposed in his career. So, when he got offer to act in a TV serial ‘Heena’(way back in 1998), he never took up any more acting in any TV shows, but produced TV shows. This TV actor knew Anurag well in his struggling days. Both had lived in the same colony and Anurag told him to try his luck in movies, Once Anurag told that he had a script for him in his mind and Rahul can fit well in the character. That is how Rahul had bagged the project Ugly. In this film, he had played a drunkard character and therefore, had to take drinks very often to get a 100 per cent drunkard look. He has got many offers after ‘Ugly’, but his new film “Aur Devdas” is releasing very soon. He will also be seen in “Fitoor” with actress Tabu, which is based on a classic novel “Great Expectations”. After the release of his two earlier films, Yeh Mohabbat Hai and Nayee Padosan, which did not give him recognition, he made a vow that he would not sign any films, if he was not sure of the entire team cast. He is a rare actor, who wants to give 100% to the film requirements in which he is given a chance to act. Before his life had changed with the release of ‘Ugly’, he also launched his own production house Filmtonic, that would produce TV shows. But he never acted in any of the shows that he had produced. As a producer of TV shows, he was engaged in producing just three serials. May be he has taken a break from TV shows, and would be totally involved in upcoming films that he has in his hands, The actor was born on 7th December, 1997 in Srinagar (capital of Kashmir).
