In Bollywood, all you need is Danny Denzongpa – Known for his special brand of villainy roles, Denzongpa has often played the antagonist but is also known for his positive roles in movies like Frozen, Naam Shabana, Bioscopewala, Baby, Fakira, Kalicharan and many more.
The seasoned actor is now excited for the showcase of his movie ‘Frozen’ on February 25 as the opening film at the Bandra Film Festival because it also marks his 73rd birthday.

Talking about his character and working on Frozen, he said, “It was an adventurous and pleasant experience shooting in Ladakh in the dead of winter!
My father was one of the head monks in a monastery in Sikkim. Living and observing him helped me portray this character very easily. The body language, chanting mantras and praying all have come from him. The slight Ladakhi accent came from my local speech teacher and interactions with the local assistants and crew members.”
Talking about the Bandra Film Festival, he stated, “It’s great that there is this platform, it’s like a Hidden Gem which showcases cinema from the past that now the people can watch”
