Saqib Saleem is beaming with joy with all the praises coming his way for his stupendous portrayal of gangster Shiv Prakash Shukla in his latest web series, Rangbaaz, premiering 22nd December exclusively on ZEE5.
A ZEE5 original, Rangbaaz, directed by Bhav Dhulia and also starring Aahana Kumra, Ravi Kishan, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Ranvir Shorey, is a crime thriller series that is set against the rustic background of the Gorakhpur of the 90’s with hues of crime, blood lust and dirty politics.
Equipped with confidence and talent, Saqib stole the show with his dumdaar portrayal of gangster Shiv Prakash Shukla. The talented actor is also being appreciated for sporting a new ‘moustache’ look for the first time that gives his character an edge. Interestingly, the actor who flaunted his cool, six-pack abs in Race 3 had to let go off his muscular physique for Rangbaaz and gained few kilos to resemble like a gangster of the 90s.
From learning Eastern-UP dialect to the art of holding a gun and fire effortlessly, Saqib has nailed it all effortlessly in Rangbaaz.
