Full Biography of Actor Saurabh Shukla

Saurabh Shukla (born 5 March 1963) is an Indian film, theatre and television actor, director and screenwriter. He is best known for his work in films like Satya (1998), Barfi! (2012), Jolly LLB (2013), Kick (2014), and PK (2014).

In 2014, he won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Jolly LLB.

Shukla\'s family left Gorakhpur for Delhi when he was two years old. Here after completing his schooling, he did his graduation from Khalsa College, Delhi. His professional career began in 1984 with his entry into theatre.

Shukla began serious theatre in 1986 with roles in plays like A View From The Bridge (Arthur Miller), Look Back in Anger (John Osborne), Ghashiram Kotwal (Vijay Tendulkar) and Hayvadan. In 1991, he joined the NSD Repertoire Company – the professional wing of the National School of Drama – as actor. The next year he got his first break when Shekhar Kapur, impressed with his work, created a role for him in Bandit Queen.

Shukla also did the role of Vijay Anand\'s sidekick Gopi in the 1994 Doordarshan crime drama Tehkikaat. The series was directed by

Karan Razdan, but Kapur directed the first episode. He also wrote and acted in Zee TV\'s 9 Malabar Hill.

These days also he is doing a comic theatre play 2 to Tango, 3 to Jive.

Shukla\'s biggest break came when he co-wrote the script for Ram Gopal Varma\'s 1998 cult classic Satya and played the role of gangster Kallu Mama in the film. He won the Star Screen Award for Best Screenplay alongside Anurag Kashyap.

\"Why do I make realistic films, like Satya? Because that\'s the kind of films I like to do. Capturing reality is very difficult and challenging,\" he said in a 2000 interview to Rediff.com, making it clear that his prefers realism in his scripts. In the same interview he also talked about his preferred genre of film making – comedy:

If you carefully see my work, it is all . We usually categorize subjects as comedy and serious. But there is more than just this. Like when we laugh, we sometimes also cry. There can be certain viciousness to this action if there is too much of it. It is the same with romance, which gets too much after a point. There is always a comic element in every situation. ”In 2003, he wrote the screenplay for Calcutta Mail. He received his first award for this film, the Zee Cine Award for Best Screenplay. In 2008, he acted in his first international film, the Golden Globe and Academy Award winning Slumdog Millionaire, as the character Constable Srinivas.
