Biography

After rising to fame with China Gate, the talented actor continued to appear in mostly negative roles which were highly appreciated. The versatile actor proved his comic timing with Golmaal and also delivered memorable performances in films like Gangaajal and Apaharan. Mukesh Tiwari was born in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh in August 1969. After graduating from the prestigious National School of Drama, Mukesh Tiwari got his big break when he was cast as the dacoit Jageera in 1998’s multi starrer China Gate. The movie did moderately well and established him as a reliable actor. His next big acting gig was in JP Dutta’s Refugee (2000). He also appeared in a slew of supporting roles in movies like Farz (2001), Mitti (2001) and Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage (2002). Mukesh Tiwari’s role as a jailor in the Ajay Devgan-starrer The Legend Of Bhagat Singh (2002) was the start of a fruitful association with the superstar. He then appeared alongside Ajay Devgan in several other movies, like Gangaajal in 2003 and Apharan in 2005. In 2005, Mukesh Tiwari also had an instrumental role in Mangal Pandey: The Rising as Bakht Khan. Between then and Golmaal in 2006, he took up roles in movies which didn’t amount to much. Golmaal was the first time Mukesh Tiwari worked in a comic role. His bumbling gangster character, Vasooli Bhai, became a huge favourite with fans of the movies. He then made his Tamil debut in Prabhu Deva’s Pokkiri in 2007. He was then cast in 2008’s One Two Three to reprise a role played by Kamal Haasan in the original. By then, the next installment in the Golmaal series, Golmaal Returns (2008), was ready for release. The movie lived up to expectations by raking in the audiences and box office collections. Mukesh Tiwari had become a supporting cast staple by the time he played the main villain in his second Tamil venture, Kanthaswamy (2009). He also had a growing reputation for comedy which was reinforced with his roles in Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge? (2010), Hello Darling! (2010) Golmaal 3 (2010). Simultaneously, he also had special appearances in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (2011) and Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012). In 2013, he returned to playing the funny cop in Chennai Express and Boss. He also had a role in the earlier episodes of the TV show, Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma.
