With Aamir Khan’s Ghulam Sharat Saxena became immortal When Aamir Khan was doing Vikram Bhatt’s film Ghulam (1998) they were hunting for an actor who had a physique like a boxer and talent like a versatile actor. After hunting for over six months and rejecting over 100 actors Aamir Khan was in dilemma. If he found an actor good in the physique then he lacked acting genius and vice-versa. Hence he was dejected but Aamir Khan is known as Mr. Perfectionist hence he did not give-up. Few weeks later, he was sitting in his house and watching TV and happened to watch Mithun Chakraborty’s film Boxer. More than the film’s content Aamir was bowled over by Sharat Saxena, who played the rival boxer opposite Mithun Chakraborty. Readers would be surprised to know, Aamir was not even aware about Sharat Saxena but he asked Vikram Bhatt and his team to locate Sharat Saxena and call him to meet him. Within a day Sharat Saxena was located and cast as Raunak Singh aka Ronnie, a local goon and an Ex-Boxer by profession. Sharat Saxena pumped all his energy in the film and emerged as a winner. He was nominated as Best villain that year by Filmfare. Sharat Saxena is obliged to Aamir Khan for the film as the film made him immortal in the annals of Indian cinema. After Ghulam, Sharat Saxena’s career took a high leap and gave opportunity to do a verity of roles in Hindi and regional cinema.

Sharat Saxena left his lucrative engineering job for passion in films Sharat Saxena did his school from St Joseph Convent in Bhopal. As a student he had made up his mind to become an actor. Since young age he was body conscious and had developed a robust physique. He participated in school drama and dreamt of becoming an actor but his father was against his career option. He forced him to become an engineer hence Sharat did his graduation in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from Jabalpur Engineering College. After obtaining his engineering degree Sharat came to Mumbai on the pretext of working in a company. He did a job as an engineer for few months but the bug of becoming an actor was so intense that he kicked his lucrative engineering job and began struggling in Bollywood.

Sharat Saxena has an arranged marriage Sharat Saxena hails from Kayastha family in Bhopal. His family is highly educated and rooted to culture. Though Sharat Saxena stays in Mumbai but once or twice in a year he spends quality time with family in Bhopal. He married Shoba in a typical India style. It was an arranged marriage. His children are trying to start a career in films.

Sharat Saxena’s dream of hero was shattered in Bollywood At Bhopal, where Sharat Saxena was born and bought-up, he dreamt of being a hero. Girls went crazy over his strapping personality. This made Sharat Saxena proud of his muscular build and he hoped that like Dharmendra he too will become a hero easily in Bollywood. But alas when he started hunting roles to become a hero in films, he realized that he was not fit for hero’s role and suited a villain’s role to a perfect T. But the film industry was dominant with top villains like Pran, Premnath, Ajit, Prem Chopra etc. hence he was offered roles of being the side kick of the villain. Frustrated and tired of struggling for over 2 years, Sharat Saxena accepted small roles of villain’s sidekick and tragically got stereotyped in similar roles. Few of his early films include Dil Deewana, Kabeela, Vishwasghat, Des Pardes etc. Sharat Saxena became a routine in Amitabh Bachchan’s films like Be-naam, Kasme Vaade, Kaala Patthar, Shaan, Shakti etc After Mithun Chakraborty’s film Boxer, Sharat Saxena’s career took a turn Mithun Chakraborty’s film Boxer (1984) proved a turning point in Sharat Saxena’s career. For the first time Sharat Saxena’s macular body helped him in winning a pivotal role of a Boxer. The film was directed by Bollywood celebrated filmmaker Raj N Sippy. In this film, which was based on a boxer’s life, Mithun Chakraborty played a boxer and his opponent boxer’s role was played by Sharat Saxena. The film was hit and Sharat Saxena was noticed by film industry. After Boxer, Sharat Saxena began getting good villain’s role in films like Karma, Shahenshah, Tridev, Agneepath, Ghayal, Vishwatma, Khiladi, Gupt, Duplicate etc. After Ghulam, Sharat Saxena displayed his versatility After the success of Ghulam, the film industry took notice of Sharat Saxena as a competent actor and helped him in displaying his art. He did good comedy in many films like Phir Hera Pheri, Love Ke Liye Kuchh Bhi Karega, Hasee Toh Phasee, Ready, Baadshah, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, Bodyguard, etc In addition he did many sob tale movies like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Club 60, Bullet Raja, Singham Returns, Baghban Fanaa etc and proved his excellence in emotions.
