Mukesh Rishi was regretful, while saying Bulla’s dialogues

Actor Mukesh Rishi is a name related with Bollywood villain, and in recent years, he has also seen a rapid rise in his fan base all thanks to his character Bulla in Gunda (1993). But, the actor says that Bulla is one role that he never liked doing.

When Gunda, a Kanti Shah film, first released in 1998, it was quick to vanish away. But the internet wasn’t going to let such a gem drop away. More than a decade after its launch, the film gained a amaze amount of cult popularity, thanks to several admiring video reviews and fan pages that have came out.
On his latest talk he said;

“I felt ashamed while saying Bulla’s dialogues! There was a mixed feeling of shame and guilt, and I constantly questioned myself why I was doing this in the first place,” said Rishi.

He further added, “I was working with actors like Shakti Kapoor and Mithun da, who were already at the top of their careers. So one such movie wouldn’t have changed their picture. But I was quite new and didn’t want to be taken gently. I didn’t want people to finish working with me because as per thier belief that this was the kind of content I was capable of.”

Rishi shared that he is astonish that the movie bounced back the way it did. “I never expected that to happen. The movie wasn’t to well received for its content back then. So the sudden respect was surprising. But that’s what they say about the viral media (internet) — nothing really ends here. And suddently I saw my young fans, most were girls, saying those dialogues like they were something good. That is something I never truly understood,” he said.


“But if anyone has to take credit for it, I’d give it all to the one who wrote the dialogues. Who envisage them not only outcast that phase of cinema but somehow knew that these lines would stay. It was very instinctive of them.”

He Further added that he wasn’t too excite with the decline of the villains in Bollywood but sees a change now. “Villains are as important as the hero. Without the right villain, the hero isn’t brave enough. Things are changing again, and we’ve had some great villains now. That makes me really happy.”
