He is someone who has always flown against the tide, he is someone who has never gotten things easy and he is someone who has lots of controversies surrounding him; well, we are talking about Yuvraaj Parashar, who has carved a niche for himself.
It was in the year 2005 that he began his journey with Husn, which was followed by a small role in Fashion (2008).
However, Yuvraaj Parashar first made headlines when he along with Kapil Sharma, portrayed India’s first homosexual love scene on film, Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyon.
The film might have been criticised by far to many, but then one could not ignore the sincerity with which he essayed his role.
To make matters worst of him, his parents took legal action to disown him because of the film, despite Yuvraaj winning acclaim from the Deputy Chief Minister Of Maharashtra, Chhagan Bhujbal for his sensitive portrayal of a gay man.
Yuvraaj’s father Satish Parasher felt that by doing a film like this his son had gone against the culture and tradition of our country as it challenges the purity of the relationship between a man and a woman.
According to the actor, cinema and the audiences have changed and he has not quorums of doing what he did. Now this just goes on to prove his belief towards the craft.
If this was not enough, there was news of director Onir trying to molest him. Both had their versions and we would not want to get into this as we respect their individual stand.
Coming back to the film, well it did make a huge mark in the International circuit and now Yuvraj is all set to feature in the sequel of Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyon titled Dunno Y 2, which is expected to release this year.
Looking at Yuvraj’s journey, one can confidently state that life has not been easy for him, but then it has never hampered his enthusiasm and zeal to do what he believes in.
Success is not an accident, it is full of hard work, perseverance, sacrifice and love for what you are doing, and Yuvraj loves what he is doing.
Here’s wishing this talented actor all the very best and we do hope that his dream run continues.
