Vinay Pathak, a person with immense knowledge of acting and known for his comic timing in Bollywood turns 46 today! He is a theatre person apart from being an integral part of Indian cinema. He has worked in critically acclaimed films like "Khosla Ka Ghosla," "Bheja Fry," and “Johnny Gaddaar”. He has also had major supporting roles in blockbusters like "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”. Today being his birthday, let’s look at the various roles he has profoundly portrayed in his films.
1. Asif Iqbal – Khosla Ka Ghosla
Vinay played the role of a visa agent, helping the youngest son of the Khosla family. This was the role which got him some limelight and appreciation for his subtle comedy!
2. Bharat Bhushan – Bheja Fry
In this film, Vinay portrays the role of Inspector for the Income Tax department and is also shown as a talkative self-promoting singer who carries with him a scrap book showcasing his musical life. Two diversified roles and yet played amazingly well. The film was received well too since it released a part 2, and part 3 is still in the making.
3. Prakash – Johnny Gaddaar
A different role from all his prior roles. He depicts the character of a gangster more like a gambler and received critical acclaim and accolades for the same!
4. Bobby Khosla- Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
Vinay is seen in a supporting role, playing a best friend to Suri (Shah Rukh Khan)in this movie. In spite of it being a King Khan movie, he did steal some hearts and attention!
5. Amar Kaul- Dasvidaniya
Playing the role of a 37 year old accountant in a pharmaceuticals company. He received a lot of positive reception from this film and this film also made a good box-office collection.
Here’s wishing Vinay a very Happy Birthday and we are looking forward to his role as a freedom fighter in “Gour Hari Dastaan”, where we are expecting him to deliver one more inspiring act.
