Be it Congeniality, be it Duplicity
Or even Ferocity

Aditya Srivastava is the Epitome of Versatility!

There are quite a few things which separate good actors from great ones; and one of them is versatility, the ability to perform a variety of roles explicitly or subtly different from each other. ADITYA SRIVASTAVA is one such outstanding actor who's not only stepped into a plethora of varied roles throughout his career, but is capable of doing so without the slightest twinge of discomfort, as clearly seen in each of his works.

He played Puttilal, the child Phoolan's cruel and mercilessly abusive husband in BANDIT QUEEN. He abuses child Phoolan physically & sexually.

He gained widespread recognition for his role in SATYAwhere, apart from serving as the narrator in various parts of the film including begining, he plays Commissoner. Amod Shukla's protege Inspector Khandilkar who executes Shukla's ideas in the field and avenges him by slaying Satya and his diabolical minions.

He also played the short but memorable role of a responsible assistant police commissioner named Adityain SAATHIYA, with Shah Rukh Khan.

The film examines the impact of female foeticide and female infanticide on the gender balance and consequently the stability and attitudes of society. Its storyline bears some resemblance to real-life instances of gender imbalance and economics resulting in fraternal polyandry and bride buying in some parts of India. Aditya's character has no name in the film rather he is addressed as Raghu's uncle. He raped the only female character, Kalki mercilessly like others in the cow shed.

A drastically different and tragic character follows inPAANCH, where he plays a certain "Murgi", the guitarist in a group of five apparently wayward and music-loving friends who enter a series of misadventures in pursuit of money to get their album released, with deadly consequences. He is the one to retain moral fiber and reluctance to join the infamy right until the climax, making for a truly captivating and enriching performance.

In MUDDA - THE ISSUE, he portrayed Harpool Singh, a rustic but fatherly political figure in a village who actively clashes with the ruling political head, MLA Balli Tai to usurp her.

He also played the manipulative and swindling solicitorKamlesh Mathur in EK HASINA THI, who tricks Sarika into confessing a crime she'd never committed.

In BLACK FRIDAY, a striking film based on the tragic story of the 1993 Bombay blasts. Aditya portrayed the role ofBadshah Khan, a henchman who had left Bombay & gone into hiding & was found by the police later on. Betrayed by his own people and left without cover to hide behind, he realizes the error of his ways and decides to become a police witness.

He played the patriotic and valiant adjutant Lt. Colonel Pradeep, next to Amitabh Bachchan's character of company commander in LAKSHYA.

In DEEWAR, he stepped into the shoes of Ejaz, a ruthless Pakistani officer who goes out of his way to make the lives of a group of Indian prisoners of war a living hell. We see him beating mercilessly Maj. Ranvir Kaul (Amitabh Bachchan) in the beginning of the movie.

But all the positive and honorable traits he portrays in the aforementioned roles vanish like ice in a furnace as he steps into the toxic shoes of Dr. John Sanga in DANSH, a notorious doctor who rapes Maria (Sonali Kulkarni's character) multiple times while having her bound and blindfolded before meeting her several years later; his cover is blown due to subtler non-visual clues she observes and is forced into confessing his atrocities.

In DIL SE POOCH KIDHAR JAANA HAI, he plays Avinash Srivastav, paired opposite to Vani Tripathi and one of a couple who get separated following the infamous Mumbai riots and meet several years later, with him becoming a cop and realizing that she's now a prostitute. He narrates his experience of playing this unique character in an unusually elaborate and heartfelt interview on IndiaFM.

"I was running away from the role but then it has turned out to be such an enriching experience in the end. Shrirang, the director of the film, had seen Satya and as per him, he had written the script keeping me in mind as the central protagonist. He was sure that he wanted to cast me in the role."


He played the role of Karan in GULAAL, a fiercely independent individual and the illegitimate son of a Rajput King who harbors a deeply felt loathing for his father, while maintaining an outwardly calm appearance.

In MOHANDAS, Aditya played the role of Harshvardhan Soni is a fiery committed lawyer from a small town in India. He is a college friend of Mohandas. He took this case of stolen identity to court with the intention of hauling up the usurper. He is a fighter till the end. A desire for justice burns in every human heart and he fully represents that.

In KAALO, he portrays the role of Sameer, a commoner who sets out on a journey home back to his village and ends up saving a twelve-year old girl named Shona from the titular character, an evil desert witch.

Apart from this long lists of movies he also acted in small impressive character in movies like Dil Se, Sanshodhan, Hazaar Chaurasi Ki Maa, Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar & Raakh.

In DIL SE, he is Meghna's (Manisha Koirala) brother & a terrorist who beats Amar (SRK) for liking Meghna & plans to blast in Delhi.

In SANSHODHAN, He is Chunni Singh...not a big role...he's present throughout, but doesn't say much.

In DIL PE MAT LE YAAR, he is Tito, a Dubai returner who has an affair with another guys wife.

In RAAKH, he plays another negative character.

He acted in other languages apart from Hindi- ALWAR & NAALAI are two such movies of this genius actor. InAlwar, he plays a character of a police officer where inNaalai, he plays a negative character.

His versatility does not confined to the silver screen, it flourishes in Tellywood as well.

Though Aditya does not act so many serials like he acts in lots of movies but television gives him popularity most due to the character of Abhijeet in CID.

His multitude of talent made a humble beginning of an episode in BYOMKESH BAKSHI - KAHIN KAVI KALIDAS, where a very young but buoyant Aditya was seen asMadhumoy Sur in a cameo as one of the suspects in a murder, leaving a surprisingly significant impression upon the audience.

Aditya played the role of nefarious man on the brink of death due to experimenting with supernatural forces. He prolongs his death by killing persons with a long lifeline as he has to score a settle from his past life by killing the man who killed him in his previous life.

He played the character of Rashid Gul, the dreaded terrorist who kills Kundan because he is going to inform the police about Rashid. Kundan dies in his mother's arms. Mother watches a news flash that Rashid has escaped from prison and is on the run. She recognises Rashid as her son's killer and is shocked to see him seeking refuge in her own house. Threatened at gunpoint by him, mother has no choice but to lie when the police come to her house asking for him. Rashid suffers from malaria and she and her daughter, Usha, tend to him day and night. She cannot get herself to hate the man who killed her son, and soon, there emerges a mother-son bond between Rashid and her. She asks Rashid to surrender to the police so that he stops leading the life of a fugitive. When Rashid is going to surrender, he is shot dead by the police.

In RISHTEY - HIGHWAY as Vijay, a rough and aggressive man involved in the cruel business of human trafficking, whose icy heart thaws when he falls for a young lady, Veera whom he had abducted in the course of his usual dealings. His gradual transformation in the aforementioned role is stunningly acted with well-balanced bouts of bluntness, subtlety and emotion.

Another wonderful performance of Aditya Srivastava is shown in 90s comedy serial -Yeh Shadi Nahi Ho Sakti. He plays the character of Mr. Daruwala, a drunkard mega flop director. He willingly goes along with Golcha to make one flop film so that Golcha can lose some money to avoid taxes.

His further role in serials is equally, if not more, impressive. STAR BEST SELLERS, 9 MALABAR HILL, NAYA DAUR, AAHAAT & SATURDAY SUSPENSE PEHELI are few serials where he acted.

Aditya initially joined the show for a single episode in the role of a reluctant criminal named Paresh in STOLEN GUN Episode (1998), who steals the ACP's gun and attempts to shoot down his callous ex-boss before being stopped in the nick of time by ACP Pradyuman.

Another well-known but notorious role of his is as the perfidious rogue Rocky in the infamous 2009 episode, BEHRUPIYA, where he kidnaps Abhijeet and uses plastic surgery to infiltrate the C.I.D team, successfully hoodwinking most of them until the climax where he's exposed by Daya and delivers him a near-fatal gunshot before being slain by the real Abhijeet.The episode largely  focuses on red herrings as the team searches for the doppelganger in their midst, and subtle signs are used to indicate Rocky's infernal presence, a vile creature lurking behind Abhijeet's mask upon his face, and once again Aditya proved his prowess by carrying out this demanding role flawlessly.

But none of those were as popular and widely appreciated as his portrayal of Senior Inspector Abhijeet in B.P Singh's now-famous crime thriller C.I.D., a dynamic character he's been bringing to life onscreen for over 16 years now. 

A capable police officer battling complete memory loss and trying to find his identity was how Senior Inspector Abhijeet was introduced in the serial CID on 21st July 1999 Case of Stolen Dynamite. The intelligent way in which ACP Pradyuman convinces Abhijeet to get back into his former life and comes out from the emotional turmoil that Abhijeet undergoes.

Senior to Daya, second in command to ACP Pradyuman and a police sharp shooter whose anger is legendary just as his quick silver retorts regardless of the rank of the person interacting with him forms the character Abhijeet. He sauntered into everybody's heart. To many others he was a slice of reality in the uniformed forces solving crimes daily as their jobs. Sr.Ins. Abhijeet displayed his skill as a team player & leader in the absence of ACP Pradyuman. His loyalty & dedication towards his work inspires his juniors. His daring attitude saves his country, countrymen & his colleagues' life many times. Duty always comes first to him. He never think twice to give resignation when he finds himself guilty but ACP Pradyuman never accept his resignation as every time his innocence is proved. 

In spite of 16 glorious years of CID as Sr Ins Abhijeet, he silently repent through the years for his mother's death. She dies as he could not identify her due to memory loss. Memory is the Achilles' heel of him. Many times, Abhijeet becomes in trouble due to his memory & sometime his own trusted colleagues (ACP Pradyuman, Daya, Dr Salunkhe) have to mistrust him. Many times the goons try to use his memory loss against CID but all the time, Abhijeet comes out with flying colors.

 Not only is he seen selflessly plunging head-on into the most dangerous of situations and clashing with everyone from amateurish criminals to the most ferocious monsters in existence in order to save the lives of innocents and his beloved teammates (and very often his own) but he's demonstrated a further stunning display of his versatility by portraying a variety of undercover roles while in the shoes of Abhijeet. One of the more early and popular examples of the same is seen in the episode, The Case Of The Undercover Cop, where Abhijeet disguises himself as a drug peddler and ventures into some of the most vicious and perilous ghettos of Mumbai to expertly mingle with a cruel gang of smugglers and going on to bust up the entire racket. In the 2010 case Khoon Ki Holi, where after surviving a close call with a masked thug named Sonu, he disguises himself as the same and goes on to save the day in the climax. The outcome of the combat isn't immediately revealed and his masquerade is uncanny enough to trick the foes, his teammates and the audience alike. From truck drivers, waiters, peons, salesmen, low-lives and barbers to doctors, librarians, junkies, hippies, assassins, auto drivers- all kind of character he's portrayed in course of the show. Near about 70 episodes till now he portrayed different disguised character and surprisingly all this instance we couldn't find any traces of Abhijeet.

Abhijeet's understanding of Daya is legendary. Every nuance in tone or body language alerts Abhijeet and he is always there for Daya. In turn reciprocated by Daya every time Abhijeet is embroiled in a controversy. Be it the case of the Accused officer when Abhijeet faced flak for accepting bribe or in the case of the two Abhijeets when an imposter was looting people using Abhijeet's name, Daya was silently supporting Abhijeet. Saving him from the stone throwing public or the press, Daya was always sure that Abhijeet could do no wrong. Abhijeet is Daya's conscience whenever Daya is in trouble and thinks of taking creative steps to solve the situation. The case of the Dishonest Cop has Abhijeet reminding Daya not to solve the murder case dictated by emotions. He is the one by Daya's side when the girl Daya had decided to marry turns out to be a traitor and had betrayed him to the drug lords. He doesn't allow he rto talk to Daya knowing that his friend would breakdown in front of all. He becomes impersonal in his investigation whenever Daya is implicated all the while supporting his friend emotionally. Both are ready to sacrifice their own life for each other. We get to see a glimpse of this in the overrated episode of Abhijeet in Coma, where the former doesn't even think twice before standing as a shield for Daya while in the episode of Behrupiya, Daya's life is in danger to save Abhijeet.

 A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.That is indeed a fact that the two of them prove every moment.

Abhijeet & ACP Pradyuman's relation is another wonderful relation shown in CID. ACP Pradyuman always helps him to come out from his memory loss & loves him a lot as ACP sir once said - "maine tumhe humhesha apne bete se jyada pyar kiya hei". He also said - "tum to jante ho mere baad agar main kisi par sabse jyada varosa karta hoon to woh tum ho". And Abhijeet never let him down. "jaan de dunga magar aap ka varosa nehin tutne dunga". Abhijeet never mistrust ACP Pradyuman even when the world goes against him. He always stands for him. Once DIG Samsher Singh offered him the post of ACP of CID by shooting ACP Pradyuman in reply Abhijeet said to Daya - "Daya, Samsher ko malum nehin ke Abhijeet beek nehin sakta aur ACP ki office ka rasta Pradyuman ka laash ke upar se nehin jata". Who can forget that scene of Akhri Chunauti Part 8 where Abhijeet tried to save ACP's life by blackmailing him to put gun on his own head. ACP Pradyuman trusts him most & mistrusts him as well whenever Abhijeet becomes suspect of any crime. Abhijeet never complain about it rather he said - "ACP sir dil se nehin dimaag se sochte hei". Though there is only one case till now where ACP sir said - "magar Abhijeet mere dilne iss jhoot ko sikar nehin kiya...mujhe pata tha tum aisi galti kar hi nehin sakte...bina kisi wajah tum kisi mujrim par goli chala hi nehin sakte". Though ACP Pradyuman shows doubt openly on Abhijeet in maximum case, but he silently believes Abhijeet. We can easily understand that from ACP Pradyuman's expressions. And Abhijeet always proves himself innocent. ACP Pradyuman knows very well that Abhijeet can do anything for him even he can sacrifice his life also. Once Freddy said to ACP sir- "Abhijeet sir to aapke liye apni jaan vi de sakte hei", ACP replied - "issi baat ka darr hei Freddy mujhe". Abhijeet understands ACP Pradyuman more than others & he always dare to question the ACP when others can't think about it. We see another touchy scene for this two in Abhijeet Ka Inteqaam II where Abhijeet was shot lying on the road, Daya holds him in his arms and tries to revive him by calling out to him & he appeals to ACP to call him to consciousness as he would never disobey ACP, ACP calls out to him and a few seconds' later Abhijeet gasps and consciousness is regained. In Rahashya Dweep IV episode we see again their sweet relation & we can't forget Abhijeet's dialogue - "aap hamare liye anmol ho hum appko khone ka khatra nehin utha sakte". They share a perfect father-son relation. 

Dr. Salunkhe and Abhijeet initially have a no nonsense professional attitude towards each other. It slowly changes from great trust  to sarcastic humour as time moves on. It charges due to Abhijeet's soft corner for Tarika. Dr Salunkhe starts mistrusting & misbehaving Abhijeet in recent time.

A friendly relationship existed between Asha and Abhijeet. The only woman officer till date to have had the distinction to call the two officers by their name Abhijeet , Daya and sir was a formality of respecting rank and nothing more.

The officers who enter CID, regard Abhijeet as the quintessential senior. He is like a star to be followed and a senior to be emulated. Specially his scintillating bonds with Freddy, Vivek, Sachin, Tasha, Purvi, Vineet & Rajat are well known. Apart from Daya, the relationship he shares with Freddy is long standing and crosses many boundaries. 

From the beginning, whether it is Manu (Case of Missing Father, 1999), Vikram (2005 few episodes), Shreya (Nanhi Gawah, 2009),Daksh (Raaz Bad Uncle Ka, 2012) or Sia(Abhijeet Ke Inteqaam, 2012), Abhijeet shares wonderful bonding with the kids. Special mention to deaf & dumb orphan Shreya.Abhijeet shares special bond with her in Nanhi Gawah episode & in the end he wants to adopt her but her uncle comes to take her. Abhijeet argues with ACP & Daya but they don't permit Abhijeet to adopt her. 5 years later she becomes in trouble due to her uncle but Abhijeet along with CID team save her. At last Abhijeet adopts her.

Abhijeet still remains the enigma whom all want to solve or understand yet few can get close to have even a couple of questions answered. His dedication to his job and his proximity to ACP Pradyuman and Daya puts him always in the line of fire. Many a times he has played with his life to get at the truth. Viruses, bombs, headaches have never been successful in deterring him from executing his job honestly and with lan.As The ACP said it once, Abhijeet manages to prove his worth in spite of hundreds of Agniparikshas that he has had to face till date. He has come out of it every time, untouched, unmoved. And who better than Aditya Srivastava could portray this dark yet subtle, brilliant yet challenged by fate character of Sr.Inspector Abhijeet? Its very rightly said, Actors don't choose characters, rather characters choose actors for themselves ! Sr.Inspector Abhijeet has Chosen the Master himself, Aditya Srivastava.

 Nobody can successfully step into the shoes of a character without imbibing its soul into themselves the moment the director says "action". Literally, they more or less become that person for a short amount of time, fully understanding what the character is and what its personality is like. Often, a good amount of research and more than large amount of rehearsals and takes are required to bring out the desired performance. With all the factors combined, it is a physically and psychologically stressful experience. The fact that Aditya Srivastava not only has such a vast range of strikingly varied characters under his belt, but has done them with surprising ease and touching humility, goes on to show that he deserves every bit of the enormous respect he's earned from his ever-growing fan-base and why he's one of the most versatile, talented, artistic and underrated gems in the Indian film and television scenario.

I was not sure what I felt, 
Nor was I sure about tomorrow,
Where it would land me up in, 
Still I knew I had something in me, from none I can borrow.

I was not sure how I took the task
Yet I believed I could accomplish.
A task not so easy, of a cop
Now the same role, I relish.

Post playing as a vile and vicious one
I knew I could do this too, alright.
With my hopes and prayers, I set my foot
To play the role in Stolen Dynamite.

Quite easy as then the seed was planted.
Little I knew that the roots would grow deep 
I gave my soul, my heart to the work I did.
For I knew, I would never let it fall steep.

Here I am now, in that chosen path
Where I was destined to plant my feet, 
To tread on and carve my own way. And now,
I see Abhijeet in me and me in Abhijeet!

There was a time when a young boy from Allahabad had shifted to Delhi for making a career in theatres. His destiny brought him to Mumbai very soon and the next big thing that happened was an offer to enact the role of a cop in a show named CID. However amusing the character be, it was just to be a matter of some days that he would have been essaying that role. Little did he know that fate had some other plans for him! Little was he aware that the character would become a new identity for him in the coming years!

The character was that of "Senior Inspector Abhijeet", a valiant CID officer who never feared a challenge. Somebody, who wouldn't mind facing a hundred goons all by himself, was what represents Senior Inspector Abhijeet. Needless to say, that with sheer smartness and courage, he would of course come out of it victorious. But then something happened that changed his life once and for all. A group of unidentified criminals attacked him and left him in a state close to death. Although thanks to the ACP and his then subordinate Daya, his life was saved, but he wasn't really alive any more. A man who had lost his memory completely and when all the attempts to gaining it back had failed, one wouldn't call his condition to be "alive"! To an extent that the lady who called herself his mother, dies with the disheartening feeling that his own son doesn't recognize her, one is bound to feel sorry for his own self.

As difficult it might sound, essaying the character of Abhijeet, Mr.Aditya Srivastava has been absolutely flawless since its inception. The transition from Aditya to Abhijeet was just a matter of time! The very first episode "The Case of Stolen Dynamite" aired exactly 15 years ago, saw the astounding actor stepping into the shoes of the helpless officer Abhijeet. Helpless he might seem to others, the episode goes on to show how he continues to possess the qualities of a diligent cop that he used to be before the incident. ACP Pradyuman notices how Abhijeet still possessed the courage that made him stand out among all other officers and decides to re-appoint him in CID all over again. This is how, Abhijeet started with a new beginning in his life. Or shall we call it the rebirth of Inspector Abhijeet?

Ironically, the episode was aired on July 21. This is the very same day that is celebrated as Aditya Srivastava's birthday.  Was it a mere coincidence or something more than that, we do not know.  All that we know is that the role that Aditya Srivastava was about to play for the next few days only, went on to continue for more than 15 years and still counting. Today, Abhijeet is just another name that Aditya Srivastava doesn't mind being referred to. He has given his 15 years to Abhijeet, has lived his life, has seen his ups and downs himself, has found a home outside home, a family who has been by his side through thick and thin. Abhijeet and Aditya, although different from each other, remain incomplete without one another.

Yaad hai aaj bhi gujra hua woh kal mujhko
Ek ajnabi ki tereh  mila woh jis pal mujhko
Kehne ko toh wo sirf ek kirdaar tha naya
Jisko nibhaane ka mauka kismet ne mujhe diya.

Na jaane kya tha usme jo is dil ko bha gaya
Aur dheere-dheere jaise main usme samaa gaya
Yun toh nibhaaye aur bhi kirdaar maine magar
Uski daastan thi auron se zara hatkar.

Seene me tha toofan uske aankhon me ek kashish thi
Farz ke naam per mit jaana,bus ek yehi khwaaish thi.
Uljha  hua tha wo ateet ki dhundli yaadon mein
Kuchh anjaane rishton mein kuchh mushkil haalaton  mein.

Sachchai aur imaandari ki ek misaal tha who
Saahas aur soojh-boojh  me bhi kamaal tha who
Uska her ehsaas mujhe apna sa lagne laga
Phir to jaise woh mujhme, aur main usme dhalne laga.

Yun toh mile the hum bus kuchh hi din ke liye
Per dekhte hi dekhte barson guzar gaye
Socha nahi tha ek din aisa bhi aayega
Jab naam uska meri  pehchaan ban jaayega.

Yunhi  saath uske jeevan ka safar tay karta gaya
Aur har din us kirdaar me ek naya rang bharta gaya
Nibhaaya nahi balki maine jiya hai uski zindagi ko
Uske her imtehaan  ko,har ghum ko har khushi ko.

Yun toh humdono hain ek duje se kaafi juda
Phir bhi  jaane kyun lagta hai jaise wo aksh hai mera
Meri bhi thi chaahat kuchh karoon desh ki khaatir
Auron ke liye jiyun aur maroon desh ki khaatir

Usne meri  har dabi khwaaish ko poora kiya
Kayi khoobsurat rishte diye,ek  naya  parivaar diya
Usse milkar to jeene ke maayne badal gaye
Manzilen badal gayi,raaste badal gaye.

Auron ke liye beshaq woh  hoga Abhijeet
Per mujhko toh wo mera hi ek roop hota hai prateet
Ab toh uske bina jaise meri pehchaan  adhoori hai
Aur uske zikr se hi hoti meri  kahaani  poori hai.

So here, we focus 7 best reasons for which maximum people love him most Wink

Why suddenly 7 only ? Confused

He was born in July, 7th month Tongue 

"Beauty doesn't last forever, but a beautiful personality does!"


I stare at you with awestruck eyes
And I feel from my heart 
Freshwater from its melting ice
From your sheer warmth 

And then you smile wide 
Almost grin like a lovely kid 
Casting your popularity aside 
Humble you live yet charm exuding 

You could have been the prince 
Dressed exquisite with maids fleeting 
But simplicity is thy name I rise 
In thy name I salute and aspire to reach 

From the golden ball of fortune 
Earned from severe struggle
To have us seen you is a lilting tune 
Of happiness that will last forever 

Though your sway has royal extravaganza
Your love is straight , simple and true
I extend your hand in warmth 
And I need no more in life

What more can I attribute to you 
Than that you're the best actor ever
And the best man chivalrous , lovable 
And your personality the step to strive for

Though your career has been dotted with negativity 
When I see you and hear you I realize 
That I know no one more respectful to the ladies 
And a daughter you beckon us

You talk no more about yourself 
You shy away from the flashing camera lights 
But well isn't that justified ?
The brightest diamond is found in the darkest of mines!
[courtesy - nsapo]

They shine like a beacon of truth and hope
In a world tainted with the darkness of crime
For enemies, full of rage beyond any scope
Leaving no doubt, of justice it's now time
For the innocent and close, they twinkle and shine
Gentle and merciful like the morning skies
With their charm and magic our hearts they entwine
My humble tribute to his angel and killing eyes!

[courtesy - DemonStar]


When we look into his eyes, we tend to lose our thought ! Blushing

Look into his Angel eyes
One look and you are hypnotized
He will take your heart and you must pay the price
Look into his Angel eyes
You will think you are in paradise
And one day you will find out he wears a disguise
Don't look too deep into his Angel eyes
Crazy about his Angel eyes
Once he took my heart and now I pay the price!

[Lyrics taken from ABBA Angel Eyes song]

So, Don't look too deep into those Angel eyes!Wink

His smile is so adorable & addictive. Its million dollar smile. Its drop dead smile. He kills thousands of fans everyday with his smile! Blushing


Oh no. Don't smile. You'll kill me Dead
I fear the Grim Reaper, like hell he is. See? Wink
Once drew nigh to adobe, Ne'er catechizes for Tea LOL
Conducts our soul to afterlife unescorted by fee Big smile

All being Urban myth; but your simon pure smile Smile
Catches me red handed by pink elephants each while Day Dreaming
It grosses over Bouquets and adulation from local and exile Tongue
You flash it on screen and we are to this place; Immobile...

[courtesy - saman]


The voice that enthralls millions,
The voice of wisdom, purity and command
So commanding like the army chief,
No doubt he is, of all the hearts, the thief
Can anyone wrong in identifying it?
Nor can any deny such a thing, amazingly indulging
That very voice can make a change,
Any change for the voice, to him, is a gift!

His voice makes us tremble inside. Embarrassed

If Versatility could be personified

Pita-samaan varishth ka sirr ooncha karnewaala ek qabil beta,
Anaath bachchi ko dil se sahaara dene waala ek pita;
Aurat ka har mushkil mein saath dene waala ek pati,
Kitna bakhoobi nibhaate hain aap har woh naata...!!

Ek imaandaar inspector ki aankhon mein bhadakte sholay,
Ek dost ke liye aseem pyaar aur vishwaas;
Ek aatankwaadi ke dil mein palti tabaahi ki aag,
Desh ki suraksha mein tainaat ek senaadhikaari ki aas...

Ek aam aadmi ka burai se ladhne ka prann,
Ek khatarnaak aparaadhi ke kaanpte hue haath;
Dard ke aansoo, kabhi pyaari si muskuraahat,
Waqaalat kar ke kabhi sach toh kabhi jhooth ka saath...

Dil chhoo jaati hai aap ki har woh adaa,
Apni anokhi awaaz, apne har shabd se aap har roop sajaate hain;
Kahaani mein aap ka yogdaan chahe bada ho ya chhota,
Har kirdaar ko aap apna bana jaate hain...!!

Humaari shubh kaamnaayein humesha aap ke saath rahengi,
Aap apne hazaaron rang hum par yun hi barsaate rahein;
Aap ki khoobsoorat adaakaari dekhne ke avsaar
Humaari zindagi mein baar baar aate rahein...!!

How can one give almost 60 expressions in 1 minute ? Shocked
Aditya Srivastava can! 


In some faces they have the charm they say
To captivate, to enrapture , to entrap and still
The hearts of millions in one hold
One such is thine, Oh God of Acting

Mostly you are the strict, commanding senior
Yet you manage to convey the subtle touches of sentiment
Always the faithful friend, talking with eyes, all things
In the Universe, And for one a son, inseparable
Resisting, Giving in and loving infinitely.

And once in while a funny side, that makes 
My sides ache in memory, Your serious humour
Does such wonders with all that those eyes
Convey, Disguises are not just draping cloth,
But diving into the skin within seconds minute
And once in a while, the angry young man
Burning like untempered steel, makes beads of sweat form too.

And in one such times , a hardened criminal, but with force
Who later turned in a witness,Such torture, fear show in your eyes
But yet you struggled to live, opposing in bravado those who
Entrapped you to violate law, crossing its narrow seams
The gullible Badshah Khan

And then , a Police Inspector, fighting the law and 
Protecting his love, fiercely, his anger flares,like lightning 
Strikes, The society shuns thee, but none he let 
Touch his pure love, the man of character, yet great temper
The man who all sought to love, Avinash

The guy on the highways, abducting girls
Once like the iron , hard and unmalleable, then 
Melts in the showers of love, complicated
Fighting his emotions like they were his enemies,gives in
For extreme innocence is then revealed
One character immortal, Vijay

Grey shaded , a political victim and a leader
Throwing his dice, in utmost intelligence, yet
The unfailing brother, tender,whose victory is attained
Quiet, furious, calculative and yet Loving,
The Hundred shades of Grey- Karan

A driven criminal by circumstances forbidden,
Lays in the lap where his best friend and victim lay
But endearing brother, for his once living sister
Understanding that forgiveness  requires much strength than murder
Finally agreeing to surrender, and fearing death
Soon collapsing in surrender, in a heaven, with a mother to grieve
Heart wrenching and yet starkly real, Rashid Gul

To describe your roles, emotions, infinity is less
For the journey has not been conventional nor stereotyped
Expressions delivered to perfection, finessed by strength
The positive as powerful as the negative
The smile as disarming , as the anger heart thundering
It is not without weight that your emotions fly
You know what effect it has on us, don't you?
Oh Master of Expressions, dear Adi Sir?Embarrassed

No matter whether its Aditya-Daya orAbhijeet-Daya, their friendship is legendary! Fans used to call them together as DUO & love to see them together only. We love to hear a 'daya' from Abhijeet and a 'abhijeet' or'boss' from Daya.


Aditya ne jub Sr. Insp. Abhijeet bankar CID me rakha kadam,
Ek sahakarmi aur sahayak bankar Daya, saath rahe hardum.
Senior Junior ki jodi ki anokhi dosti ka huva janam,
Ye parde ke aage ki dosti, parde ke peeche se thi... Mehsoos kar chuke the hum.
Hayee! Kya kamaal hota tha jub yeh karte aakhon se baatien,
Vyvahaar me itni sahajata hai sacchi dosti ka saboot ye hum samaj jaate..
Abhijeet Daya ki dosti ke jo beete hai 17 khusnumah saal
Toh ye Aditya Dayanand ki Dosti ke jaadoo ka hai Kamal!!!

Woh hai ek shaqs hum sab ke liye hi khaash hai jo
Yun toh hai door lekin phir bhi dil ke paas hai jo
Woh  jiske chehre par koi khuda ka noor hai jaise
Jiski qaabiliyat ko dekh dil magroor hai jaise
Hain jiske phun ke sab qaayal woh ek phunkaar hai aisa
Nibhaa paaye na jo wo kaun sa kirdaar hai aisa?
Woh chaahe toh fanaa karde apni qaatil nigaahon se
Aur madhosh karde apni un dilkash adaaon se
Hai apne naam ki terah hi roshan shaqsiyat unki
Sharaafat,saadgi aur wafaadari hai milqiyat unki
Hai kaafi ek jhalak jinki dil ko bahlaane ke liye
Ek muskuraahat hai bahut har ghum bhulaane ke liye
Na jaane kaisa juda unse yeh rishta chand saalon mein
Ab toh shaamil hain wo har pal apne khwaabon-khayaalon mein
Kaash ki apni ye deewangi ab na kabhi ho kam
Unke didaar bas yunhi hame hote rahen hardum...

Stealthily you crept inside my heart
Where no one even sneaked in the past
Neither you knocked, nor you called
You just came, sat and kept my breath on hold
How it happened, I wonder till date
Gradually, on which I pounce, you became that bait
You started reigning my thoughts 
And I began liking you a lot

Today, your fiery eyes don't scare me
Instead, have become the mirror that I want to see
Your flying hairs entangle my grey matter
Your single gesture is enough to make me flatter
Your gentlemanly demeanour teaches me to be grounded
Your every performance leave me astounded
Your magnificent smile delightens me every time it shows up
Your husky voice electrifies and charges me up.

Your dexterity on the gun is treat to eyes
With every act your stature only rise
When you look into the camera, my heart skips a beat
Your murderous looks always radiate killing heat
You seldom turn up at social gatherings
But when you appear, I subconsciously, start to sing
Your sharp answers, my ears have got accustomed to
Your bewitching expressions, I tend to lose into

When you grimace in pain, my heart aches
My heart beats diminish when your life is at stake
When you cry, I too weep
I get worried when you collapse in a heap
When you laugh, my world gets enlightened
Your strong confrontation to life help my faith to tighten 
When you disguise, I could see but not find you
Versatility, to this extent resides in you.

Today, you seem to be the world to me
The ocean, in which I like drowning in
The star, that shows me light in the dark
The enchanter, who, on me, has carved a permanent mark
The magnet, that attracts all and sundry
The artist who is always hungry
Fascinating as a rainbow, dangerous as a whale
Your charm is something that can never stale.

Sahara Samay Interview 


"The kind of personality I have, if I am there in a lead role, a film cannot be 100% mainstream"  - Aditya Srivastava 

By Joginder Tuteja, December 8, 2006 - 06:51 IST

In an age of popular films coming week after week and breaking the record of the last blockbuster in the way, there comes a small film like Dil Se Pooch,Kidhar Jaana Hai that takes an offbeat approach and narrates the tale of a couple that got separated post infamous Mumbai riots and met again in diverse circumstances. We get into an exclusive conversation with the male lead of the film, Aditya Srivastava, who has shown his mettle as a character actor in films like Bandit Queen, Dil Se, Satya, Ek Haseena Thi,Matrubhoomi and Dansh in the past.

You seemed to have a great start with films like 
Bandit Queen [1996], Dil Se [1998] andSatya [1998]. Why have you been not so high profile on the big screen even after being there for more than a decade? 
Well, I mainly look for interesting roles and interesting scripts. This is why I was there in films like Ek Haseena Thi,Deewar and most recently Dansh but then yes, they have been far and few. A lot of my time goes in my serial CID on television and hence until and unless I get to play a very special character, I do not really crave to be there on the big screen. 

So is your character that special in Dil Se Pooch & Kidhar Jaana Hai
Yes, thats true. The film has a backdrop of Mumbai riots and revolves around the characters played by me and Vani Tripathi. Both of us play husband and wife who get separated after the riots. What happens when we meet after years forms the crux of the situation. The irony is that while I am a cop, my wife is now a prostitute. How both of us decide to be together while being scared about the society and the fight that begins henceforth is the underlining drama in the film. 

Sounds rather interesting.
Yes, it is! Because while so many stories are told about people who died or got injured in the riots, there are so many terrible stories about people who were indirectly affected by these riots. 
Dil Se Pooch  narrates the tale about two such people. 

But don't you think that a film with a subject like this needs to be promoted well for its target audience?

Yes, but then I may rather not comment on the films publicity. If my producers feel that they can get the movie in theaters after a 2 week promotion then they have their reason about doing so. I am not really getting into the whys here and would just want the film to do well whenever it releases!

Whats the relevance of the films title considering the subject of the film sounds dark? 
The idea is simple. Whenever you are on a crossroad, always listen to your heart. That's because the voice that comes from inside is never wrong. It never lies and always guides you well. This is what happens to the main characters in the film. When they are in crisis, they listen to the heart since it dictates what is right and wrong. 

For the first time in your career, you play a lead role. 

That's right and what an experience it was! In fact I was running away from the role but then it has turned out to be such an enriching experience in the end. Shrirang, the director of the film, had seen 
Satya and as per him, he had written the script keeping me in mind as the central protagonist. He was sure that he wanted to cast me in the role.

Most of your films have breached on being slightly offbeat. Is that intentional?
I won't say that I have a problem doing mainstream cinema. In fact I have been a part of such films like Lakshya or Deewar. But then let me be honest here. The kind of personality I have, if I am there in a lead role, a film cannot be 100% mainstream. It needs to have a subject which is different from what works as popular cinema. I can be cast as a villain in mainstream cinema but certainly not a hero. 

Is that a reason why you played the role of an evil lawyer in Ek Haseena Thi? 
True, the role was brief but was brought out pretty well. In fact I would also be seen as a villain in 2-3 Tamil films that I am doing. 

And release of Black Friday should be another example of that, is not that so? 
Yes, we all are quite relieved that the film would finally be seeing the light of the day after the Supreme Court judgment. With a Jan/Feb time frame for the film's release looking probable, Mid-Day [the film's producers] would be devising a publicity strategy for the film and bring it to the audience. 

It could be a turning point in your career? 

Dekhiye aasha to nai hi rehti hai! 
There have been number of films that I have done with acclaimed directors in the past and I really believe that Black Friday by Anurag Kashyap would make its mark too. 

So what next after Dil Se Pooch and Black Friday
There is a film titled Raakh which I have done with director Hansal Mehta. It is a film in a complete commercial format with Sohail Khan and Mithun Chakraborty. I play a villain in the film. Beyond that I would be also be doing a film calledMohandas with Mazhar Kamran who is an established cinematographer. And no, before you start wondering, film Mohandas has nothing to do with Gandhi!!

'The Killer' gang has a breather before the shoot

[Anupreet SandhuPosted: Fri Feb 19 1999 IST]

Aditya Srivastava and Niki Aneja, would play the lead roles for the first episode of the serial - "The End", which will be shot at Kufri. The two were camping in the township at the residence of a friend on their way for the shoot.
Aditya is the new actor who hit the Silver screen with his role as the first husband of Phoolan in the "Bandit Queen", besides playing the fiery Inspector in "Satya".
Produced by Felix Sequeira and directed by Rajesh Ranasingle, the serial's first episode "The End" revolves around a psychopath woman (Niki), who saves a writer (Aditya) injured in an accident...
Meanwhile, Aditya who has already done roles which demand sheer gravity of performance, considers cinema as the ultimate goal of an actor. Coming from Allahabad, he started off his career with an amateur theatre in Allahabad and later moved on to the Sri Ram Centre at New Delhi where he was spotted by Shekhar Kapoor for his "Bandit Queen". From then on, his journey in films went on. Aditya has also acted in tele-serials like - 9, Malabar Hills and Yeh Shaadi Nahi Ho Sakti.

An interview of Anurag Kashyap and the making of 'Black Friday'

Anyways, while writing the script few actors i always had in mind..the ones who didn't have to audition..I wanted KK to play Rakesh Maria..Naseeruddin Shah to play Tiger memon and Irrfan to play Badshah Khan..Aditya Srivastava was to play Dangle..Nowazzuddin to play Asgar Mukadam and Pankaj jha to play theba and Dubyendu bhattacharya to play yeda yaqub..Siddhu was the only choice for samra..We got some..others we didn't..Naseer dropped out because he did not want to play a muslim terrorist was a very sensitive time then..Gujrat was burning..and you know how in times like that anybody could have stood up and said anything..Its a funny country..same reason why Irrfan dropped out..Irrfan said he had no issues to play Rakesh Maria..that put us into a sticky situation..the finance was raised by selling these three actors together for the first time..the financiers were pressurising us to interchange the casting of badshah khan and rakesh maria..they also told me i had a KK bias..i tried to show them how KK had a close resemblance to Rakesh Maria..when pressure got too much..i put my foot down..AM stood by me..we got away...Now if not Irrfan then who for Badshah khan..i immediately thought of Aditya Srivastava..but i had to show them why i thought so..i hesitantly requested Aditya to audition for Badshah..he had no problems, and was very sporting..sometimes it gets actor you have worked with and appreciated twice before, you ask him to audition..he rocked..i knew it..

Aditya Shrivastav's Black Friday

By Surendra Hiwarale [ February 11, 2007 at 11:39 am]

The film started and I was taken into the entire conspiracuy of the bomb blasts. Aditya Srivastav aka Badshah Khan was known to me as we had worked with him in Ek Haseena Thi before. Before that my memories of him were of the straight forward honest cop that he played in RGV's Satya. When I was watching it I was constantly pulled in by his performance. Never ever did I loose a single frame whenever he was on screen. What I had liked about the film was its innocent approach towards justifying what happened. And three cheers to Anurag he managed to achieve it.

Its interval, Aditya Srivastav is no doubt my hero, KK still I do not like. We have chai, cigrettes, samosa's, and go back again. The film begins, Pawan too has had an impact on me and he is consistent even today. Aditya I like much more than yesterday. He rocks; I start to feel after Amitabh Bachchan he is the one who has the caliber when it comes to performing.

I can never be wrong in my judgement. As the film unfolds, I am reminded of the scenes that I know. Aditya Srivastav makes me further respect him as the most convincing Badshah Khan. I love you boss as an actor. Whether, it's his gradual progression when he realizes that he has been cheated by Tiger Memon. Jusy check him out in the scene where Theba (I think) tells him that their passports have been burnt. The fight that ensues there, immediately the next cut is of Aditya standing in the bathroom and guys the way he has performed actually made me feel that, this is how real Badsha Khan must have felt. It's so touching.. the scenes where he is constantly trying to speak with Tiger Memon, where in he keeps asking him to move him from Bombay, and his conctant trips to Rampur to jaipur to tonk to again jaipur to Calcutta are amazingly performed, I just loved the way Anurag has designed his emotional graph, which ultimately leads to his coming back to Rampur Badshah Khans native place. It was so well done. Badshah Khan surrenders, his first meeting with Maria, and him finally trying to turn the state approver just makes you feel bad for not only him but for all the boys who were a part of conspiracy. Aditya's track gets over and so does chapter three.

Aditya Srivastava: Black Friday, Satya

...And they aren't the only ones on the Bollywood horizon'actors like Ranvir Shorey, Deepak Dobriyal, Prroshant Narayanan, Aditya Srivastava, etc are all bringing fresh vitality, vigour and also money and success to the alternate, small film movement in the country.

"Opportunities for us are increasing," says Aditya Srivastava, seen recently as Badshah Khan, Tiger Memon's henchman on the run in Anurag Kashyap's Black Friday.

Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar! A bittersweet life By Hansal Mehta

...After much hesitation and awkwardness, my worst fears came true. Manoj refused the film. He wanted to be part of a much bigger film. He wanted to support me but in a bigger endeavor. In despair I approached the very gifted and under-rated Aditya Srivastava for Manoj's role. Aditya agreed. The producer backed out...Aditya Srivastava showed no disappointment when I told him that Manoj would be doing the role offered to him. He accepted the role of Tito for a pittance. He even contributed money towards making the film. I think Tito is one of Indian cinema's most memorable characters. It was a great performance by a very magnanimous actor. 

Twelfth year, caught in the same case!
[Smita Roy, TNN Mar 15, 2009, 12.12am IST]

Having done a host of critically acclaimed movies, from Bandit Queen, Dil Se, Ek Hasina Thi, Black Friday, Aditya Srivastav is now excited about Gulaal in which he's seen portraying grey shades.
Besides films, Aditya is a known face on TV. But, incidentally, he has never done any other show apart from CID. "This is the 12th running year and somehow it's more of an emotional bonding I have with the serial now," he says. But why isn't he seen in any other show? "I took up CID because I simply loved the concept of the show. Today, its the only one of its kind crime thriller on TV. Unfortunately, this genre has not been tapped too much on television and the bandwagon runs after saas-bahu sagas or reality shows, either of which I'm not really interested in. If apart from CID there's something that I like, it has to be the movies I do!"
But unlike his counterpart and good friend Kay Kay Menon, who also arose from television, Aditya has not yet received the kind of appreciation and roles that he might deserve. To this, he says, "I'm doing this serial for so many years now, that I feel it would be unfair on my part to leave it just for the sake of films. In the process of trying to juggle both TV and films, it becomes a little difficult as I've dedicated 20 days a month to the show. That leaves me with 10 days for meetings, script readings or shoots for my films. But now slowly I'm doing some time management so I can work more towards films. Hopefully things should happen and by God's grace, I get more and better work."
Few people know that recently he had done a film as a solo hero called Dil Se Pooch Kidhar Jaana Hai, which he modestly confesses didn't work well at the box office and he wasn't surprised, as the marketing was next to negligible. But then he believes, "One should keep trying. I'm trying my best and what happens or what would happen would definitely be for the best. I don't lose heart and by the way there's another movie releasing this year with me as the protagonist. It's a daylight horror and a one of its kind... just like my show!"
