Beyond Circuit: 5 Arshad Warsi Roles You Should Know About

Team FC

Babban in Ishqiya/Dedh Ishqiya

As the practical and moofat half of the wily duo at the centre of Abhishek Chaubey's Ishqiya and Dedh Ishqiya, Warsi seamlessly slips under Babban's skin. We loved the breezy confidence with which he delivers the character's mix of his UP-Bhopali accent.

Jolly in Jolly LLB

As Jolly, the aimless lawyer who suddenly finds purpose through a case, Warsi capitalises on his strengths as both a comic actor and a performer with the ability to communicate immense depth.

SSP Ajay Kumar in Sehar

Considered one of the most underrated crime dramas of Hindi cinema, Sehar stars Warsi as an encounter specialist IPS officer in Uttar Pradesh. Warsi is riveting as a determined cop, willing to go to any lengths to wipe out crime.

Jai in Kabul Express

In this thrilling story about terrorism, hate and fear, Warsi plays Jai, an Indian reporter stuck in Afghanistan. A veteran performer, the actor does wonders with the film's dark humour.

Dhananjay Rajput in Asur

Although Asur didn't do well, Warsi's web series debut as a CBI officer was lauded by audiences. Like the talented gems who have found a stage due to the OTT revolution, we hope Warsi finally gets his due.
