Following John Abraham’s menacing turn as the antagonist Jim in 2023’s Shah Rukh Khan-starrer blockbuster Pathaan, all eyes are now on Rishabh Sawhney, the villain who gives a tough fight to Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone in Fighter. Incidentally, both films have been directed by Siddharth Anand.

Rishabh had made his acting debut in Nikkhil Advani’s period drama series, The Empire, which starred Drashti Dhami, Dino Morea and Kunal Kapoor. Before becoming an actor, Rishabh worked as a model for various brands and walked the ramp for several fashion designers. Take a look at Rishabh’s Instagram feed while you queue up to catch Fighter.


Rishabh looks relaxed and in full vacation mode, sporting a black hoodie jacket and yellow-tinted sunglasses, against the picturesque backdrop of mountains and a small town.

Sporting a grey-and-black shirt that matches his mop of salt-and-pepper curly hair, Rishabh reminds us of Kit Harington from Game of Thrones.

Rishabh dons the bedhead look, strolling in a mustard field in a white vest and pants. The post is aptly captioned, ‘Sleepwalking’.

In this mirror snap, Rishabh has the vibe to take on Hrithik Roshan’s Shamsher Pathania aka Patty in Fighter, dressed in a black bucket hat and a drop shoulder T-shirt.

This is how Rishabh sums up his dedication to gymming: ‘Workout - the poor man’s plastic surgery.’

Seated atop a bike on an adventure trail in Bali, Rishabh shared his philosophy, ‘I hate complicating things. I have simple rules for life. Live to love, spread happiness and help wherever you can.’

Dressed by fashion designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil, Rishabh is ‘not your regular Joe’ and ‘never going to be your everyday hoe’.
