Here are some of his finest performances on stage that literally turned heads!
1) Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro

The storyline revolves around two photographers hired by a newspaper editor to expose the discreditable activities by the rich but they accidentally came across corruption of a constructor who killed a person and had photographs as evidence to murder.
Adapted from Macbeth, Maqbool is a drama and crime related movie. Viewers regard this movie as a “Masterpiece” from Director Vishal Bhardwaj and we can’t agree more.
Dharm has a plot which states the conditions when a priest’s wife brought home an orphan boy, but her husband Pandit Chaturvedi (Pankaj Kapoor) was against it.
