Gulshan Grover was born on 21st September 1955 and is an Indian actor by profession. He graduated from Shri Ram College of Commerce Delhi University. He was completely fascinated by the lifestyle of rich kids and planned that he wants to do something which would make him popular. Hence, initially he accepted almost any role that came his way not bothering to be the lead actor in any role offered.
His debut movie was Hum Paanch (1980) but his acting career began with the movie Rocky (1981) as Jaggi and has since acted in over 200 films.
One of Gulshan Grover’s earliest films Sadm (1983) features the visually haunting story of a school teacher played by Kamal Hassan and an amnesiac girl (Sridevi). With a handful of sensitive performances, like Avatar (1983), Sohni Mahiwal (1984), Ram Lakhan (1989) and the likes, he swayed with the trends in Bollywood and resorted to play a spate of baddie roles. But there was a period where villains almost became an endangered species in Bollywood, and Gulshan Grover flew to the West and did a sequel to Disney's The Jungle Book (1997).
His hit films Jajantaram Mamantaram (2003) or Land of the Little People,the very controversials Boom (2003, Leela (2002), Tail Sting (2001), Earth(1999), Tales of the Kama Sutra 2: Monsoon (1998). He has worked in 5 foreign films, including the Tibetan We’re No Monks (2004) and the Italian Les, Mystères de Sadjurah (1997) where he played the main villain as a rebel chief.
