MUMBAI: Arshad Warsi, known for his versatile acting and memorable characters, has had a journey filled with highs and lows, triumphs and challenges. His path to becoming an actor was far from easy, marked by tragedy, setbacks, and perseverance.

Arshad's father, Ahmed Ali Khan, was a poet and singer who adopted the surname Warsi in honor of his allegiance to the Sufi saint Waris Pak. However, tragedy struck when Arshad was just 18, losing his father to bone cancer. Two years later, he faced another blow with the passing of his mother due to kidney failure.

Following his parents' death, Arshad had to fend for himself. He worked various jobs, including selling cosmetics on buses and working in a photo lab. Despite these challenges, his passion for dance led him to join Akbar Sami's dance group and later become a choreographer, working on musicals under Alyque Padamsee and Bharat Dabholkar.
