Pawan Malhotra – The Hidden Gem of Bollywood!!
That he is one of the hidden gems in acting in Bollywood is beyond doubt, considering his huge body of work that speaks for itself. And his latest role as a Sikh coach Gurudev Singh to Milkha Singh, has endeared to all the critics and the audience alike!
Pawan Malhotra phone hasn’t stopped ringing and his message inbox is overloaded with encomiums that have come his way from the industry and media alike for his outstanding performance. It was just pitch perfect!
Some esteemed critics are unanimous that Pawan Malhotra, like Aamir Khan, brings a rare integrity to the character he portrays onscreen. Every character is nuanced and is different. And every reviewer worth their salt, in Bollywood has given him thumbs up ratings and considers him as a strong contender for the award season later this year.
Some industry folks have also messaged Pawan to proactively explore Hollywood projects , like Irfan Khan, as he is one of the best actors we have here to crossover.
But very few are aware that Pawan had missed out on another film of Roland Joffe (earlier he had worked in CITY OF JOY), since he was already shooting for Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. In fact he had also missed out on hit films Kai Po Che, Mere Dad Ki Maruti, Special 26, to name a few, since he had already committed to BMB.
Pawan is very judicious on the roles he play and considers that every time he takes up a role, he is accepting a new challenge, and his thinking process begins on how to sketch out a character and the personality in the script, and he believes, it is that what acting involves.
