The quintessential villain has been an integral part of Bollywood films along with the hero since time immemorial, making a major impact on the viewers’ perspective of Indian cinema across the world. The audience has always seen on-screen villains enacting a typical negative role, thereby showcasing a loyalty to the character. Bringing a change in the audience’s view, &TV’s High Fever…Dance ka Naya Tevar welcomed two of the most iconic villains of Indian Cinema, Gulshan Grover and Shakti Kapoor. The villain duo who has played unforgettable negative roles in their time and entertained the masses with their legendary dialogues offered the audience an experience of a lifetime. High Fever gave its viewers an opportunity to witness the veteran actors in roles they have never seen them portray previously.
In the current Villain’s Special episode, an excited Ahmed Khan challenged Gulshan Grover and Shakti Kapoor to enact a typical Bollywood romantic sequence. Living up to their character, both the actors took the challenge head on. Gulshan Grover was paired with Esha Gupta and together they enacted a spicy romantic sequence and took the audience by surprise. The popular ‘crime master Gogo’ was paired with Lara Dutta and took on the role of a romantic villain, sharing shayaris for Lara Dutta.
Talking about the changing roles of villains in today’s films Shakti Kapoor said, “Bollywood has always been adamant on creating a unique experience for a villain’s character, but a romantic sequence by a villain can only happen in the modern times. As the trend is changing and the villains are disappearing in modern cinema, an actor has to be very versatile and good with every role.”
Agreeing to his thoughts Gulshan Grover said, “Cinema has taken acting to a whole new level, we don’t see anyone playing a dedicated role of a villain in contemporary movies. Considering this shift in trend, the actors have to be good and engrossed with all the roles.” Commenting further on the show’s concept they said, “The contestants of High Fever…Dance ka Naya Tevar have a never-ending dearth of talent and the show provides them with a right stage to grow. It stands out in the true sense of family relationships which are strongly enacted through dance.”
