Acclaimed director, producer and actor Tigmanshu Dhulia, has joined the cast of ZEE5’s upcoming Original, ‘Rangbaaz’. Dhulia essays the role of Ram Shankar Tiwari, who has an intimidating personality and is a master class politician.
Dhulia joins Saqib Saleeb, Ranvir Shorey, Aahana Kumra and Ravi Kishan in ‘Rangbaaz’, which is set against the rustic background of the UP of the 90s. The story revolves around a man engaging in the dark and dirty world of crime and shows the human side of one of the most feared gangsters of the region from the ’90s.
