In the film Om Shanti Om, Shah Rukh Khan’s character Om, a junior artist and aspiring actor had said, “If you want the desire for something from your heart, the whole universe will work towards getting you that.” It became a real-life mantra for many dreamers, especially actors. Pravin Bhosale also believed in it and worked day and night to fulfill his dreams to be a part of the world that tells stories through the magic of cameras. A performer at heart and dancer on the stage, Pravin has come a long way in his career since he started almost a decade ago.
Dance has always been Pravin’s love so at the age of 15, he started dancing professionally. Great talents never go unnoticed and the same happened with him. He got a chance to work with Bollywood choreographer-turned-director Remo Dsouza. Working with Remo changed Pravin Bhosale’s life completely changed as he learnt more about dancing. Remo’s feedbacks boosted his confidence on the stage too. Remo was also impressed by Pravin’s talent and gave him a break in his 2012 film, ABCD 2 starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. Among the best troops that the film featured, he was one of the best dancers in it too.
Pravin Bhosale, who’s now 31, says that he cannot imagine anything bigger and better as a debut project to enter Bollywood. He not only got to showcase his dancing abilities but his acting chops too. He says that working with Remo D’Souza in ABCD 2 taught him patience and integrity. Last year, he shared the screen again with Varun and Shraddha in Remo’s Street Dancer 3D. He is now one of Remo’s most favourite dancers in the industry who he wishes to make a part of every dance film.
In SD3D, Pravin essayed the character Pravin who was in Varun Dhawan’s team in the film. About his experience, the actor says that it was breathtaking. He learned a lot as an actor and the dancing shown in the film is of another level. It was a great project which he will always cherish. The actor-dancer was also featured in two Marathi projects by Mahesh Manjrekar. Even Mahesh was blown away with his talent and decided to cast him in his latest Disney+Hostar web series, 1962 – The War in The Hills. In the series, Pravin Bhosale plays the role of soldier Veer. The actor worked alongside talents like Abhay Deol, Mahie Gill, and Akash Thosar.
Talking about Pravin Bhosale’s Marathi projects, he appeared in Mahesh Manjrekar’s De Dhakka 2. In the film, he played the role of a musician. But Mahesh used his dancing talent too as he was the choreographer of the film. Another Marathi film in which Pravin left the audience in awe of him was FU: Friendship Unlimited. He played the character Mandy who left no chance to entertain the audience.
About his well-established career in Bollywood and Marathi film industry, Pravin Bhosale says, “I am grateful that such good opportunities came my way. The journey has been challenging to reach here. But it’s worth everything. I feel happy that filmmakers not only appreciate me as a dancer but also explore my creative side by offering different kinds of roles. I am looking forward to working on more such promising projects.” The actor has also started working as an assistant director for music videos. He also choreographs the dance numbers featured in the same. He says that every kind of work is important if you get creative satisfaction while doing so.
Well, Pravin’s professional life is going on well. Now, coming to his personal life, he belongs to a simple Marathi family where people work hard to have a secure livelihood. It is from his parents the actor has learned that the only way to go up in life is, to be honest, put in all efforts, and never give up.
