Hrishikesh Pandey is the name of a reserved, quiet actor whom most of the Indian audience will identify as macho cop Sachin from crime drama ‘C.I.D.’ on Sony Entertainment Television India. He was born on the 11th of December, 1974 and has been a model featuring both in the fashion industry and TV advertisements. Hrishikesh started out as an actor playing Vishal in
Kohi Apna Sa
, Anurag in the Zee TV series
Piya Ka Ghar
which aired in 2003 and as Shakti in the series Hamari Betiyoon Ka Vivaa. Other serials he has acted in include
, a short appearance on Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, ‘Achanak’, Raat Hone Ko Hai, Kahani Teri Merii, ‘Sati’,
As of late, he has stuck to C.I.D. also playing the role of Sachin in one episode of popular crime series ‘
’. He is continuously offered roles in many other series but he declines them because he is currently content with C.I.D. Outside of the entertainment world, Hrishikesh is an exemplary son as well - when he had just started out his career, his father had become a patient of cancer despite having lived a very healthy life without smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol. Both of them fought till the ordeal ended even though Hrishikesh was alone at that time what with his brother being posted in the army.
Like his father, Hrishikesh is also a health-conscious person, eating healthy food and exercising regularly, allowing himself to binge-eat only once a week. He likes watching education channels such as Animal Planet and National Geographic and also listening to music such as ghazals, reading poetry and writing; he wishes that he could sing as well. Hrishikesh is married to his long-time girlfriend Trisha whom he loves and cares for very much; together, they have a son named Dakshay.
