Actor, GOAT

The year began with his brilliant performance as the bent Mirza in Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo, the first major movie to wisely choose a streaming service over theatres. He kept up the momentum despite suffering from Covid-19 which saw him being hospitalised. His return to screen as the host of KBC seemingly assuring a panicked nation that all was well even as he became the voice of Covid-19 warnings everywhere reminding us of his enormous trust factor.
