While we all know SARKAR RAJ stars Amitabh, Abhishek and Ashwariya, one of the things I LOVED about the first SARKAR was the supporting cast, and specially the villians. And while SARKAR RAJ doesn’t have Kay Kay Menon, Zakir Hussain, Srinivasa Rao Kota(Silver Mani), Raju Mavani (Vishram Bhagat), Jeeva (Swami), Deepak Shirke (Chief Minister Madan Rathore) as they all either died or went to jail..we do have a new batch!
Firstly, Ravindra Kale is back, and from what I gather his role is equally as powerful! There is an apparent rift that takes place here between Abhishek and Kale, as obviously there will be somewhat of a difference in thinking between AB and Abhi…and Kale is no doubt a loyal servant to AB.
The latest list of baddies include Victor Bannerjee (Mike Rajan), one of the most talented actors we have in Hindi cinema(and underrated) it’s going to be exciting to see Bannerjee on the same screen as Amitabh..and specially in a negative role.
Sayaji Shinde(Karunesh Kaanga)-LOL! What a great name…if there is one actor who can play the slimy and lecherous villain superbly it’s Shinde who is an apt choice for the likes of Rashid and Silver Mani.
Govind Namdeo (Hassan Qazi). Namdeo recently made a terrific comeback in JOHNNY GADDAR, and no doubt he makes a ace villain…again he’s a fabulous choice!
Dillip Prabhavalkar-the talented actor from LAGE RAHO MUNNABHAI plays Rao Saab. The actor is a chameleon and did a superb job in RGV’s SHIVA remake as a coniving politician.
Upendra Limaye (Kantilal Vora)-another great addition, a talented stage actor from Marathi cinema who’s talents haven’t fully been exploited in Bollywood yet.
Lastly Suprita Patthak and Tanishaa are back though there’s no sign of Rukhsar who played Kay Kay’s widow?
