It is not easy for villains to make actor Sunny Deol sweat on the silver screen but actor Rahul Dev did the impossible. Rahul, who a few seconds ago, entered the Bigg Boss house is etched out in the memories of cine goers as the bad boy of the 2000 movie ‘Champion’.
A former model, Rahul forayed into movies with ‘Champion’ and has made a plethora of silver screen appearances since then. His brooding eyes had once made him one of the most sought after villains for the silver screen of Bollywood.
In the year 2009, Rahul lost his wife Rina to cancer. They have one son together. Rahul’s younger brother Mukul Dev is also an established actor of Indian cinema.
After his stint in the Hindi film industry, Rahul took the course of small screen. He essayed the role of Arunasur in the mythological serial “Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev”. Before Rahul, the role was offered to actors Mithun Chakraborty and Danny Denzongpa. While they had turned down the offer, Rahul accepted it saying that television is a great medium to connect with viewers from all walks of life.
With ‘Bigg Boss’, Rahul may be hoping to repeat the same. Though he is an absentee from screens off late, this participation could once again gain him attention among viewers.
It will be worth seeing if Rahul becomes the villain of the Bigg Boss house (just like his movies) or will viewers get to know his soft side on the show.
