Javed Jaffrey is known for donning various hats: actor, dancer, singer, choreographer, VJ, Emcee, ad filmmaker among others. He is the son of popular comedian, Jagdeep, and Javed carries on the tradition of humor with his comedic style.
He made his debut in Meri Jung in 1985 in a negative role. His performance in the song "Bol Baby Bol Rock & Roll" showcased his dancing skills. He garnered a huge fan-following inspiring the new generation of dancers. He has acted in over 350 films, both Indian and international, till date, winning awards from SCREEN and IIFA.
He dubbed Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Don Karnage in Hindi for Disney; scripted the Hindi version of Disney's Jungle Book 2 and Pixar The Incredibles along with voicing for the antagonist. His character as Charlie Anna in the first full-fledged commercial animated film Roadside Romeo (a collaborative effort of Yash Raj Films and Disney) was highly appreciated. His commentary on the famous Japanese TV show Takeshi's Castle and Ninja Warrior on Pogo TV and Hungama respectively has also garnered a huge fan following with kids and adults. He was also the judge for KWC INDIA (Karaoke World Championships India) with Manasi Scott, music director Raju Singh, Salim Merchant, Sulaiman Merchant, founder and organizer of KWC INDIA, Savio Paul D'sa, Lesle Lewis, Remo Fernandes, and Sunita Rao.
Jaffrey has hosted and partly hosted award shows like Filmfare, Zee Cine Awards, and IIFA. Javed has performed in over 200 live shows in India and abroad, and shared the stage with Michael Jackson, Sting, Spice Girls and Queen and the top Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Sharukh Khan, A.R.Rahman, Anil Kapoor, Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy etc.
He has been associated with advertising since 1980 as a model, choreographer, copywriter, producer and director. He has appeared in the comical Maggi Hot & Sweet Sauce commercials, over last 25 years, with stars from Pankaj Kapur to Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
He constantly changes his styles and appearance and bedazzles live, film, and TV audiences with his brand of uproarious humor while maintaining a non-controversial and squeaky-clean image.
He's also hosting Big Googly on BIG 92.7FM created with Paritosh Painter. Jaffrey also hosts Once More with Javed Jaffrey , where he talks about Bollywood films from 1970s to 1990s in his comic style, on Epic channel since 2015.
The film Meri Jung, released in 1985, gave him his first opportunity to enact the role of a villain and showcase his dancing powers on screen. Television in the 1990s highlighted his comical abilities, extending his popularity further. The launch of cable TV, particularly Channel [V] and its irreverent sense of humour, gave him a niche to depict his unique brand of comedy. He was called "TVdom's first real superstar".
Another notable contribution by Jaffrey is his performance as an anchor to the top-of-the-charts song programme, Timex Timepass, in which he shifted between the caricatures of characters.
He won his first IIFA Award for best comic role in Salaam Namaste in 2006. He hosts the dance competition show Boogie Woogie on Sony Entertainment Television Asia with his brother Naved Jaffery and friend Ravi Behl. He recently started hosting a game show called Mai Ka Laal on Disney Channel India which airs on Sundays at 5pm.
He contested in the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections from Lucknow as a candidate of Aam Aadmi Party but lost to BJP's national president Rajnath Singh. He had finished fifth in the constituency securing 41429 votes and lost his deposit.
