Saqib Saleem, who is eagerly awaiting the release of his highly-anticipated web series, Rangbaaz, walked away with rave reviews from the critics, industry and his fans alike as the trailer released recently. Rangbaaz, a ZEE5 original, directed by Bhav Dhulia and also starring Aahana Kumra, Ravi Kishan, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Ranvir Shorey, is a crime thriller series that is set against the rustic background of the Gorakhpur of the 90’s with hues of crime, blood lust and dirty politics.
Equipped with confidence and talent, Saqib stole the show in the trailer with his dumdaar portrayal of gangster Shiv Prakash Shukla. The talented actor is also being appreciated for sporting a new ‘moustache’ look for the first time that gives his character an edge. Interestingly, the actor who flaunted his cool, six-pack abs in Race 3, had to let go off his muscular physique for the digital show and gained few kilos to resemble like a gangster of the 90s.
From learning Eastern-UP dialect to the art of holding a gun and fire effortlessly, Saqib has nailed it all effortlessly which is quite evident in the impressive trailer of Rangaaz.
Praising Saqib’s performance, Huma Qureshi had mentioned on the social media, “Can’t believe this transformation @Saqibsaleem So proud of you my brother http://bit.ly/RangbaazTrailer #Rangbaaz, premieres 22nd dec, only on @zee5 @aahanakumra @tigmanshu_d @ranvirshorey @ravikishann #ZEE5Originals Watch this now!”
