Bikramjeet Kanwarpal Passes Away: Deepak Saigal Of Applause Entertainment Expresses Shock; 'He Was Here One Day, The Next Day He Was Not' - EXCLUSIVE
Bikramjeet Kanwarpal was the kind of actor we saw and recognised, although we never knew his name. He was a retired army officer who had well-etched roles in four of the most prominent web-series produced by Applause Entertainment. Deepak Sehgal, Head Of Content at Applause Entertainment, can’t get over the suddenness of Bikramjeet’s demise.

“He was here one day. The next day he was not. Bikramjeet played important parts  in four of our series produced by Applause Entertainment:  Avrodh, Andekhi, Your Honor and  Bhaukaal.  He was our go-to guy for any strong character with an army background. You know, like the veteran actor Iftikher from yesteryears. The minute the audience saw Iftikher they identified him with the khaki uniform. Bikramjeet had a similar image when it came to parts with an army background,” says Deepak Sehgal. Bikramjeet didn’t quite  approve of  the typecasting.

Says Deepak, “He would good-naturedly grumble about being  typecast in army roles, specially when he would be cast as a Pakistani army officer. He  would say, ‘Please don’t do this to me.’  But what to do? He made the casting process so much  easier. When it came to a role that required the character to exude a certain state-sanctioned  authority he was just  the actor we went to. Bikramjeet was such a  natural in authoritarian  roles. Look at  the subtle  shades  he brought  into his  performance in our series Andekhi. He was a tyrant with those less powerful than him and subservient to those more powerful. Bikramjeet could carry off that  balance so effortlessly.” ALSO READ: Page 3 Actor Bikramjeet Kanwarpal Dies Due To COVID-19; Filmmaker Vikram Bhatt Shares The Sad News


Deepak feels Bikramjeet  was capable of a lot more.  “He was the  kind of actor who could do anything. And he  was  eager to  do more. Much more. Tragically God had other plans. Sad.  He’s gone too soon.”
