It took him 10 years, but the actor and casting agent has finally cracked Bollywood

His first Bollywood role was a fleeting one in Rang De Basanti, the iconic politically- and socially-charged film of 2006. Fourteen years later, actor Abhishek Banerjee is making waves with his chilling yet humane portrayal of a serial killer in Paatal Lok. A series that also boasts his prowess as a casting director – he’s done what Sacred Games didn’t: cast a transgender person to play one.
