The first innings of his career was largely spent playing the henchman, and the odd film -Boxer [1984], Ghulam [1998] – where he played the main antagonist. Sharat Saxena though has found a new lease of life in the millennia where filmmakers have braved to see other than just a henchman in him. He’s experimented with comedy, serious drama. He proves age is just a number as the veteran actor (72) gets to play the lead role only for the second time in his career.

The veteran informed us later that he played the first lead role of his career in the short film Karma [2004] where Ranbir Kapoor played his son. Karma was a lab film made by Abhay Chopra.

Saxena will now be seen in another short-titled Bachhan Ab Tak [2022] that is set to be released on YouTube soon. It is directed by Mihir Mahidhar. The title explains its story wherein one widower, Amitabh Bachchan fan named Vijay Chauhan clearly has anger management issues. Saxena’s character is named after Amitabh Bachchan’s iconic character in Agneepath [1990]. The legend had earned the name of Angry Young Man for his portrayal of aggressive character in films like Zanjeer [1973], Shakti [1982], and Agneepath [1990].

The insensitive society often teases old men as Khusat buddha [rude man], Alone in his home, Vijay Chauhan largely spends his time muttering Amitabh Bachchan’s popular dialogues, talking to his dead wife’s photo. Fed up with the constant mocking by people around him, the khusat buddha decides to teach a harsh lesson to them.  

Beneath that anger, ther also lies the diehard Amitabh Bachchan. Be rest assured to see couple of shades to this Vijay Chauhan. The story is enticing and we can’t wait for Bachhan Ab Tak.
