He is talented, he has carefully picked his projects and he is currently busy with Chhatrasal, where he is set to portray a medieval Indian warrior, Maharaja Chhatrasal, well, I am talking about actor Jitin Gulati, who we all have seen in Broken But Beautiful (ALT Balaji), Inside Edge (Amazon Prime Video) and Prithvi Vallabh: Itihaas Bhi, Rahasya Bhi (Sony Entertainment Television).
Jitin Gulati says he is honoured to portray a medieval Indian warrior Maharaja Chhatrasal in a show titled Chhatrasal, the maiden production venture of Abhuday Grover.
Maharaja Chhatrasal was a medieval Indian warrior of the 16th century from the Bundela clan, who fought against the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb and established his own kingdom in Bundelkhand, becoming the founder of Panna State.
Along with Jatin, Chhatrasal also features Ashutosh Rana, Manish Wadhwa, Manmohan Tiwari, Vaibhavi Shandilya, Anusha Lohar and child actor Rudra Soni in pivotal roles, and is being co-directed by Anandii Chaturvedi and Bhupesh Sharma.
Prior to this, Jitin Gulati who was seen in the film M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story was even nominated in the Best Actor Category at The Mosquers Film Festival for his role in silent love story Sisak.
Sisak, set in Bombay locals, is a short film directed by Faraz Ansari and has Jitin essaying a gay character. Apparently, Sisak India's first silent LGBTQ film. It is the story about two men in a Mumbai local train who come across each other daily but are unable to express their feelings. The film explores their silent connect as the two, played by Jitin Gulati and his co-actor Dhruv Singhal, try hard, yet fail to confess their emotions for each other due to the social stigma attached around same-sex love.
Sisak not only won the Best Film at the FilmOut San Diego Film Festival but was also nominated for the Satyajit Ray Award.
All in all, Jitin Gulati is a talent to watch out for and we need to see him more often on celluloid. Here's wishing him all the very best for all his future endeavours.
