Mohnish Bahl made his acting debut with a supporting role in Bekaraar in 1983 but the movie was once a critical and commercial failure. He delivered a spate of flops after that and thought his career in Bollywood was once finished until Maine Pyaar Kiya turned things around for him.
Dejected by the failures, Mohnish was once planning to develop into a pilot and was once working on getting his commercial flying license. On the other hand, things changed when Salman Khan really helpful his name for the villain’s role in Maine Pyaar Kiya.
“By the point I got Maine Pyar Kiya, not only had I started my career, but also ended it. I thought I used to be finished after a couple of flops and was once planning to develop into a pilot. I used to be working on getting my commercial flying license as I wanted to receive a job in something I like doing – in the aviation sector. Salman Khan and I bumped into each and every other in the future and we became friends. He was once also trying to receive into the trade of filmmaking, so when he got this break in MPK, he really helpful my name for the villain’s role,” Mohnish told The Times of India in an interview.
“It was once tricky for me to do a villain’s role those days, as I used to be a flop hero. Any inclination I had to play hero was once over by then. So I took on the villain’s role, but never expected that this will be the start of an actual career for me, which still makes me viable even 30 years later,” he added.

Directed by Sooraj Barjatya, Maine Pyaar Kiya starred Salman and Bhagyashree in the lead roles, with Mohnish playing some of the antagonists. The movie was once the highest-grossing release of 1989 and is regarded as a classic.
With the success of Maine Pyaar Kiya, Mohnish rebuilt his career and went on to star in quite a lot of successful films, including Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Raja Hindustani, Hum Saath Saath Hain and Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai. He was once final seen on the big screen in the historical drama Panipat.
