All those who have seen Ranbir Kapoor starrer 'Sanju', will most certainly be in love with Vicky Kaushal's character of Sanjay Dutt's best friend, Kamlesh Kanhaiyalal Kapasi aka Kamli.

A serial entrepreneur, Paresh focuses on solving global problems
Paresh, a man with a vision, is associated with companies like Moon Express, Viome Inc, DTV Motor Corporation and Ferrate Treatment Technologies among others which focus on solving global problems. He, along with Ratan Tata and Naveen Jain, brought his passion project XPRIZE foundation to India to solve issues related to health, sanitation, women's safety, waste management etc.
He has successfully built several companies on his own
Leaving his mark in the business world, Paresh founded the 2020 Company LLC that provided the US government with advance technology in education, defense, and healthcare space. He had also built two other companies in the technology field.
At present, Paresh resides in Los Angeles
Paresh, along with his family, had moved to Chicago early on in his life and is currently settled in Los Angeles. He and Dutt first met in New York and bonded instantly over their love for music and other things. Fondly named as Parya by Dutt, he stood by the superstar through thick and thin, as can be seen in the film.
He was recently in Mumbai for first screening of 'Sanju'
Paresh flew to Mumbai to attend the first screening of the biopic of his best friend that celebrates their real-life bond. Known to be extremely media-shy, he was spotted with the 'Munna Bhai MBBS' actor in his car.
