He is mostly recognised for his role as Daddajee in the show Yeh Rishta. He reportedly had to take Marwari class lessons as the character Sanjai portrays is a staunch Marwari. In 2010 however the actor quit the show due to internal differences within the crew.

Sandit Tiwari Hindi Actor

Sandit Tiwari

In the ever increasing list of actors who switched over from a professional line into acting, the name of TV Actor Sandit Tiwari would figure prominently. Having completed his electrical engineering, he followed it up by doing his Master’s in Business Administration. The anti climax, however, came, when he ditched the opportunity of entering into corporate life, but instead decided upon an uncertain career in TV serials. In fact, initially it was not a very smooth passage into TV stardom, and he had to struggle a bit before he got his first break in the now defunct NDTV Imagine's “Beend Banoongaa Ghodi Chadhunga” in 2011. Playing the role of the character Sahib, in that serial, he followed it up by playing the character of Sagar in the subsequent serial “Mahisagar”.Although highly qualified and talented, Tiwari’s entry into the world of TV was not from any of the usual towns and cities that boast of screen actors. He was from Bhillai in Chhatisgarh, and not many had arrived from that state in the past, except perhaps the much lesser known TV Actor, Satyajeet Dubey (of “Jhansi Ki Rani”) and Swati Verma, known mostly for her acting in Bhojpuri films. The roles Sandit has played in the serials he has worked have been diverse, including serials like “Crime Patrol” and “Fear Files” where he appeared only in certain episodes.During his television career spanning just about 4 years and starting in 2011, he has starred in 6 serials so far, but has also had his shares of controversies. In the Zee TV serial, “Jamai Raja”, mid way through the serial he confessed that he was not satisfied with the way the character he was portraying had been developing. After discussing with the production team he finally decided to leave the show. He, however, adds that this did not leave any bitterness behind, and that he would love to work again with the same team, given an opportunity. Acknowledged as a sober and decent person in studio circles, this incident should not have a far reaching impact, since he has already been signed in by Big TV for the lead role in an upcoming serial about a Gujarati family.
