15 years of an epic crime drama 

In 2006, Vishal Bhardwaj delievered an amazing film adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Othello' in the form of 'Omkara', which remains to be one of the most brilliant crime movies of Bollywood. It starred Ajay Devgan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi in principal roles while Deepak Dobriyal played a memorable side character. As the film completed 15 years of its theatrical release, Deepak talked about his experience of working alongside such a great team.

He said, "This was my first film, so when you’re a struggler and you are getting to work with such big directors, you want to give it your all, thinking, ‘kaam milege, main dikhaunga’. When you are offered such a great role, you also become so full of enthusiasm and want to do your best, so there is a kind of truthfulness in your performance because you have struggled so much to be a part of something like this.”

He added, "So in this situation, the toughest part for me was how to be normal, because playing a character means you have to be that person, not you, who is so excited and nervous. The film has given me an immense reach and whatever I am today is only because of Omkara. I consider Vishal Bhardwaj as my godfather, today whatever I am in the film industry is because of his vision.”
