Piyush Mishra is much more than an actor. He is a lyricist, poet, singer, dialogue writer and a man with profound words that renders meaning to life. His interviews regularly portray him as ‘a loner,’ ‘a man who doesn’t effortlessly mince words,’ somebody who’s ‘brutally honest,’ which is correct and that increases our curiosity in him.
His discussions on everyday life, love, and war are hypnotizing and also, loaded with astuteness with a touch of wittiness. Likewise, he has an exciting voice that you can recall from his films like ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and ‘Pink.’
