Actor Gulshan Grover, fondly known as the 'Bad Man of Bollywood', says the era of being the villain or making a Bollywood career out of screen villainy, ended with him. Gulshan had made the role of a villain interesting in his films such as "Sadma" and "Ram Lakhan". "Legends like Pranji and others made a huge contribution to movies as a villain.

I never wanted to portray the same role again, that's why I used to improvise my characters. Although, today is a bit different as there is no specialised villain.

Expressing his regrets towards a role that was not offered to him, he said: "I remember being approached for this Hollywood movie villain who had a bullet stuck in his neck and he said he could not feel pleasure or pain. I was fascinated by this villain who had no emotion for anything." He opened up on a chat show on Tata Sky Classic Cinema.
