He is the man who became famous after his 'Ashwathama' act in BR Chopra's MAHABHARAT. Though he did appear in a movie or two after that, it was only in the role of 'Sultan' for the film SARFAROSH where he gained maximum visibility. The man we are talking about is Pradeep Rawat who now returns to play the main villain in GHAJINI.

The most interesting part about Pradeep Rawat's comeback is that in the last decade, he has acted in only three Hindi films – SARFAROSH (1999), LAGAAN (2001) and GHAJINI (2008). It doesn't take an Einstein to find the common thread here – a man called Aamir Khan – who has played the lead in each of the three films. While in SARFAROSH, Pradeep played a villain; in LAGAAN he was the fierce Sikh batsman who formed a crucial partnership with Aamir Khan in the ever–so–memorable cricket match.

Now in GHAJINI, Rawat plays Aamir Khan's nemesis. Incidentally, he also played the role of the villain (in a double role) in the original GHAJINI. Known as Lakshman in the film, he was also shown to be having a twin brother.

Pradeep Rawat's role in the original GHAJINI:

Pradeep plays the main antagonist who brutally murders Asin for insulting him and ruining his plans. At the climax, when Surya (now played by Aamir Khan in the Hindi remake) is challenged to face–off Pardeep, he is introduced to his twin brother. In the confusion, Surya is told by Nayantra (now Jiah Khan) to kill both the brothers as a benefit to not just him but to society as a whole.
