While Randeep Hooda played the primary antagonist Rana in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, he was joined by two henchmen. They were played by former Bigg Boss winner Gautam Gulati and Sangay Tsheltrim, who happens to be a former Bhutanese army officer.

Sangay said in an interview that he grew up watching Salman Khan's films, and said that he 'accidentally landed into the field of acting'. Radhe was given a cross-platform digital release in India on Thursday.

Sangay said in an interview with Mid-Day that he has been a fan of Salman's ever since he saw him dance shirtless to Oh Oh Jane Jaana. "Even in my Bollywood debut, nothing was planned. It was my destiny and Salman sir's kindness that I got the offer," said Sangay, who is a popular face in Bhutan. "And from now onwards, if I get major offers for roles that interest me, my job is to give 110% once I commit. I am very keen to play an army officer on screen. Because I am an army officer, I miss my uniform and it gives me extra adrenaline to act as an army officer. And it will also be very convenient to enact an army officers role on-screen I think. Apart from that, I would love to play an action hero."

In a separate interview to a leading daily, he said, "I think my entire transition from being a young kid to being an army officer to a bodybuilder led me to become an actor. It wasn't my dream or ambition to become an actor, I accidentally landed into the field of acting."
