Sharad Kelkar: Not afraid to be stereotyped as a villain

Sharad is an accomplished dubbing artist who lent his voice to the lead character in the Baahubali franchise. He ventured into Bollywood with the film 1920: Evil Returns wherein he played the evil spirit. He has also played characters with grey areas in Bhoomi and Housefull 4.

"I am not worried about being typecast as a villain because it is the other thing the industry needs. Until and unless there is a villain there can't be a hero. So, I am happy with that space," his statement read. He continued, "I want to grow so I want different kinds of roles and thankfully I am getting... I am not very insecure. I am not tired of playing a villain as such, but yes I need a change in between... I do projects in different roles... But playing a villain is fun.” The actor is interested in playing different roles.
“For an actor doing a different kind of role is very important so you will see me in different avatars. Last time I did 'The Family Man' people appreciated that character. There's 'Housefull 4' where I played a negative character, then there is 'Tanhaji'... and 'Rangbaaz 2'... There is one more series .. I am trying to do different roles and I hope people like me in different avatars.” he said.
