Best known for the role of Gopu in the hit movie Highway (2014), Saharsh Kumar Shukla, is a guy from a small town with big dreams. Saharsh’s life story is no less than a typical Hindi movie. Shukla is from a small village near Raebareli, who never thought that one day he would share the big screen with famous actors of Bollywood. His primary education was done in the village itself, but he went to Lucknow University for his higher education. Interestingly, he wanted to become a doctor before trying to be an IAS Officer. But destiny wanted something else; at the Lucknow University, he started to question himself and his motive of life that if he wanted to become an IAS Officer.

And then, one fine day, he went to see the play at BNA. And that day was enough to push him towards acting. He then studied a lot about institutes for acting in India and abroad. He did theater for five years in Lucknow and eventually, got enrolled in IIFT. In his very first year at IIFT, he got a scholarship from the Institute and UP government. Since then, Shukla has just been going high in his career; he got “Knockout” with Irfan Khan as his first movie. In 2011, Mumbai and got another role of Inder in the film “ Shahid”. He was also seen in the movie Ugly (2013) and Pati Patni and Joe. But after the release of Highway, his career seemed to get wings. He shared that initially he was very shy and nervous to work with Alia Bhatt because of his role, but then Alia made him comfortable and gave one of his best performance in the film. In future, we will be seeing a lot of him working in even bigger movies.

Sooraj Pancholi

Sooraj Pancholi is the new chocolate face hero who can do any love story character to win youth’s hearts. He had none other than Salman Khan, to introduce him in his acting career. Salman Khan had spotted him working as an assistant director in his hit film Ek Tha Tiger, and perhaps Sallu Bhai had then been impressed by his cute look and well-built figure and felt Sooraj could be more suitable as reel hero- who knows? Thinking that viewers could easily get bowled over by Sooraj’s six pack and admire the speed of his fists too, Pancholi could not have asked for a better project from Salman. Hero came to be Salman’s earlier film under the banner of Salman Khan Films,  but his blockbuster “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” released before Hero in the theaters. Sooraj was cast opposite newcomer Athiya Shetty (actress) in Hero with an impressive budget, music and even best director. By years of experience in cinema, Salman Khan must have felt that only actions and songs, can elevate this new boy in Bollywood, but the film’s fate is still awaited. Quite impressed by his new project Hero, the actor wants to work now with the established directors of B-town. It is heard that he takes advice from Salman Khan with regards to scripts even. Sooraj Pancholi was earlier in the news for his affair with Jiah Khan (actress of Nishabd and Ghajini), who was elder to him no doubt, but her sudden suicide had put him into many hurdles in the life. It was then he shifted his attention back to cinema and diverted his depressed mind towards camera, light and action and got into the role of an assistant director to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who was directing the film Guzaarish. As he watched the cameras capturing Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik’s every moments, Sooraj too got inspired to become an actor. Though, he took training in acting, dancing & fighting etc., and made all his preparations to get launched as an actor, he was not too sure if the roles would be offered to him. It was then, while Ek Tha Tiger was busy in its production, Salman Khan had aired his interest to cast him in his own production film Hero. That is how many finds him the cutest and most handsome of all the Bollywood actors present.
