Think of young and talented Indian actors and the first name that pops up in our mind is one and only Tanuj Virwani. Yes, this Delhi boy has made big in his Bollywood career so far. He was born on November 29, 1986. He completed his schooling at Bombay Scottish School followed with graduation in B.Com from HR College. After this, he got a diploma in Advertising and worked with Rediffusion for six months. A role model for all aspiring theater artists, this tall guy made his debut in Bollywood with his film Luv U Soniyo, which was released in 2013 opposite
Miss India 2010
Neha Hinge. Varun had worked with many directors in the past before being groomed as an actor. In the film, Love You Soniyo, Tanuj played a college going boy, who is Catholic and falls in love with Neha playing a character of Punjabi girl “Soinyo”. This movie shows the journey of a boy turning into a young man. The Director Joe Rajan surely was attracted to him and thus chose him to be the lead in his movie. He played the role of Mark Briganza in his first movie and begged the audience to fall in love with him. His talents are not limited to acting as he is pursuing modeling too, forming a complete package of charm. Within a short span of time, he acted in another movie
Purani Jeans. In this movie, Tanuj played the role of a small town boy, who tries to correct mistakes of his past which have been haunting him for past 12 years. He played the role of “
Siddarth” who lives in Kasauli.
This movie was directed by
Tanushri Chattrji Bassu. He was cast opposite
Izabelle Leite and
Aditya Seal and again left the audience stubborn with his acting skills. It is said that best talent is born with an individual and no wonder why this actor is so talented. All credits go to his mother, who is also an actor and model. His mother
Rati Agnihotri played the role of his mother in his film Purani Jeans. He acted opposite his real mother as a son to her character. But there is sad news for all his female friends that the actor is said to be dating Bangalore girl and daughter of the south superstar
Akshara Haasan. Both the budding actors were spotted together at several events in recent times. Akshara met Tanuj on the sets of a film where Akshara's mother Sarika was working with Tanuj. Both share a great rapport and then there were allegations that both were dating. Even before that there were rumors that Tanuj was dating his co-star Neha Hinge but Tanuj declined it and said that they were only close friends. The inspiration for this guy is
Ranbir Kapoor. In an interview, he said that Ranbir was an inspiration to many for the kind of work that he has done in such a short period giving his best performance in “
Saawariya” to “Wake up Sid” to “
Rockstar” and “Barfi” and he aspires to follow his trajectory. Well, there is a lot to come in future, and we hope to see more of him in his upcoming films.
