Nawab Shah is an Indian film actor, who works in the Hindi film industry. Before entering into films, he played character roles in television serials.[2]


Shah debuted in 2000 with director Rajeev Kumar's Raja Ko Rani Se Pyar Ho Gaya. The film had Arvind Swamy and Manisha Koirala in the leads. Shah's performance went unnoticed.[3]

His next film Be-Lagaam failed at the box office. Ujjal Chattopadhyay's Escape from Taliban was the first film which had given Shah a chance to "prove his talent". The story was more focused on Manisha Koirala, but Shah's performance was praised. It was a box office failure.[3]

Parwana, Woh, and Dukaan met with the same fate. Shah's wait for recognition was prolonged. His performances in Farhan Akhtar's Lakshya and Saurabh Shukla's Chehraa fetched some praise, but he was not getting pivotal roles.[3]

In 2011, Nawab Shah was signed to play a villain in Salman Khan's Bodyguard. He, however, had an accident and was unable to continue with the film.[2] Later that year, he played another negative role as Jabbar, in Don 2, which starred Shahrukh Khan in the lead.[1] His performance was praised, and the film became a high commercial success.[4] Shah later appeared in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag as a Pakistani athletics coach. He recently played a role in Dilwale, as Raghav, one of Dev Malik's henchmen.[5][6]
