Arshad was born in Mumbai, India. He has done his schooling from Barnes School, Deolali in Nasik. His childhood was pretty pathetic. He lost his parents just at the age of 14 and had to do a lot of hard work at a very pre mature age. He started selling cosmetics for living during initial days. Today all that Arshad has achieved is due to his own effort.
Arshad started his career as a choreographer and learnt dance from Akbar Sami’s dance group. Arshad then worked with Mahesh Bhatt as an assistant director. He has assisted Bhatt for Thikana and Kaashs.

His first on-screen appearance was with Amitabh Bachchan produced Tere Mere Sapne. He has acted in a lead role in many movies, but most of these couldn’t really manage to do well. The major breakthrough in his career came through Munna Bhai MBBS with Sanjay Dutt that not only brought accolade for him, but made the movie a smashing hit. Arshad bagged the filmfare for best supporting role through this.
The particular success brought many supporting role offers like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Golmaal Lage Raho Munna Bhai, and a lot more. The best part is that all these are thoroughly successful and Arshad was always having a crucial part to play in each.
Arshad has played negative characters as well in movies like Zila Ghaziabad. Arshad again proved his talent through Jolly LLB that showered accolades for him and it was a commercial hit as well.
