Even though the lead star of the film was Akshay Kumar, it was Sharad Kelkar’s role as Laxmi that was beautiful and powerful. His 15-minute cameo as a eunuch who went through pain, love, and whatnot throughout his life is beyond words. Stellar is the word!


Sharad played the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in Tanhaji and proved he’s the most underrated actor in showbiz. Getting into the skin of a Maratha emperor is not an easy task, but Kelkar nailed the act. Be it flaunting his strong physique or sentimental side, he was impeccable.

Ajay Devgn’s historical drama was heavily criticised by fans as well as the audience for its poor storytelling. However, it was Sharad’s screen presence that looked sincere and can be termed as the best thing in the movie. He played the role of military officer RK Nair in Bhuj.


This film saw Sharad Kelkar as a villain, yet he shined. Just how he packed many powerful punches in action sequences opposite Ajay Devgn, the exact same he was as a performer in each frame of the film. He is definitely class apart!
