For those who have watched superstar Salman Khan’s latest outing- Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, Sangay’s evil character Lota is unmissable. One film old in Bhutan, Sangay reveals that he landed the film after an hour-long chance meeting with Salman Khan on the sets of Dabangg 3 in 2018. At that time, all that Sangay wanted was a picture with Salman Khan. However, little did he know that the elaborate fan meet would pave the way for his big Bollywood debut.
After the release of Radhe, Sangay spoke to a leading media house about his journey from the army to serving the King of Bhutan to winning laurels for the country in bodybuilding to becoming an actor and producer, and now his entry in Bollywood. “I was in the army before and I was also a very passionate bodybuilder. I wanted to compete for my country internationally. I was serving his majesty the King and the members of the royal family which is a rare opportunity in Bhutan. In 2013 I resigned and in 2014 I got my first bronze medal in Macau in the Asian championship. In 2015, I got my Gold medal from Uzbekistan and in 2016 I defended my medal. Then in 2017, I won the title of Mr. Bhutan and I went for world championships where I came fourth.” Later when he thought he was done with competing, he opened the biggest gym in Bhutan named Muscle Factory.
For his second film, Sangay wished to work together with his filmmaker friend Haider Khan and flew to Mumbai to meet him. Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai released on May 13. Besides Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff are also part of the film. The film is directed by Prabhudeva.
