THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR DESI HERO ADITYA PANCHOLI
Unlike our other desi heroes, he did not have to rush from one producer to
the other, clutching his portfolio. Instead, while travelling in a Mumbai
local train, he was spotted by the secretary of a film director who was on
the look out for a new face! In true filmi style, this cat-eyed handsome man
with a lethal personality appealed to him and Aditya Pancholi was the new
star on the horizon of Hindi cinema!
His first film 'Sasti Dulhan Mehenga Dulha' in 1984 paved the way for money
and other good things in life as his plans of joining the Navy vanished into
thin air and he became one of the many average actors in the industry. None
of his roles can be considered great as mostly he has done second fiddle
roles of brother, hero's friend or the head honcho. But two recent films
where he has been highly appreciated are 'Yes Boss' where he plays the title
role of the "Boss" and 'Hamesha'. As the 55-year-old Thakur in 'Hamesha' he
looked quite convincing and dominating. With these hits in his kitty things
have started looking up for Aditya. What with a film like 'Desh' (where he
plays a corrupt police officer) lined up for release, guess it's time for
the industry to take this actor - with the lethal combination of light-eyed
innocence and devastatingly good looks - a bit more seriously!
