Bikramjeet Kanwarpal Passes Away: Deepak Saigal Of Applause Entertainment Expresses Shock; 'He Was Here One Day, The Next Day He Was Not' - EXCLUSIVE

·2-min read

Bikramjeet Kanwarpal was the kind of actor we saw and recognised, although we never knew his name. He was a retired army officer who had well-etched roles in four of the most prominent web-series produced by Applause Entertainment. Deepak Sehgal, Head Of Content at Applause Entertainment, can’t get over the suddenness of Bikramjeet’s demise.


“He was here one day. The next day he was not. Bikramjeet played important parts in four of our series produced by Applause Entertainment: Avrodh, Andekhi, Your Honor and Bhaukaal. He was our go-to guy for any strong character with an army background. You know, like the veteran actor Iftikher from yesteryears. The minute the audience saw Iftikher they identified him with the khaki uniform. Bikramjeet had a similar image when it came to parts with an army background,” says Deepak Sehgal. Bikramjeet didn’t quite approve of the typecasting. ALSO READ: Bikramjeet Kanwarpal Dies Due To COVID-19; Neighbour Pooja Gor Says, 'He Was My Family In This City'- EXCLUSIVE


Says Deepak, “He would good-naturedly grumble about being typecast in army roles, specially when he would be cast as a Pakistani army officer. He would say, ‘Please don’t do this to me.’ But what to do? He made the casting process so much easier. When it came to a role that required the character to exude a certain state-sanctioned authority he was just the actor we went to. Bikramjeet was such a natural in authoritarian roles. Look at the subtle shades he brought into his performance in our series Andekhi. He was a tyrant with those less powerful than him and subservient to those more powerful. Bikramjeet could carry off that balance so effortlessly.” ALSO READ: Page 3 Actor Bikramjeet Kanwarpal Dies Due To COVID-19; Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt Shares The Sad News

Deepak feels Bikramjeet was capable of a lot more. “He was the kind of actor who could do anything. And he was eager to do more. Much more. Tragically God had other plans. Sad. He’s gone too soon.”
