Sometime ago we had interviewed Gopal and titled the interview as the “Age of the Actor Emerges.

” What is really heartening is that this Sahitya Kala Parishad Repertory trained graduate has gone places from there. He is now well entrenched in the world of Bollywood, and some very outstanding performances have emerged from this bundle of talent. Here we catch up with him on the cusp of his new releases:

What is upcoming Gopal?

Exciting times, there is Ranvijay’s film 3 am releasing later this month, a horror film and then the film by Sriram Raghavan, and in both I have a very solid role.

I last interviewed your post Madhur’s Traffic Signal, how has Bollywood and life treated you since?

Can’t complain. I think, slowly and surely, I have been getting solid work, and making my work. Winning over audiences and also awards like the best actor award in the Gujrat International Film Festival, for my work in the short film, Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala.

Every film, a different Gopal?

As an actor, I like to challenge myself, with different kinds of roles, nothing more. Keeps me fresh and also compels me to push myself as an actor.

Don’t see you in TV?

Telefilms, which begin and end, in as one off, are fun, episodic not so, since they slowly drain the actor in me. Plus films have been coming at a good rate, so cannot complain.

Aim for the next 5 years?

To be the best villain in Bollywood. I’m getting there. Also there was Vivek Agnihotri’s film, Buddha In A Traffic Jam, which I rate as one of my finest performances. Vivek has given me some really challenging roles, which I have appreciated. Plus with the new directors coming up almost daily in Bollywood, things are a changing, for actors like me.
