Bollywood actor Ashutosh Rana  started his  acting career with one of the most popular television shows, 'Swabhimaan'. His character, Tyagi, garnered a lot of appreciation from the audience.

This was followed by other series like 'Farz', 'Sazish' and 'Waaris'. He became a popular name in Bollywood after his stint as a  cold-blooded psychopathic killer in Tanuja Chandra's 'Dushman'.

His other popular movies are 'Sangharsh', 'Ansh: The Deadly Part' and 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania'. He has also worked in the Marathi, Kannada, Telugu and Tamil films and earned a name for himself with his powerful acting skills.  Ashutosh  will be seen next in  a lead role in the short film 'Test Drive' presented by Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films.



"My all-time favourite film is 'Sholay'. It is the perfect of all the emotions. One can experience laughter, sadness and thrills at the same time. Each and every character in 'Sholay' made an impact. A particular scene that remains close to my heart is one in which Jaya Bachchan lights the lamp and Amitabh Bachchan plays the mouthorgan looking at her. That silent moment between them is extremely heart-touching. Both these characters have expressed their emotions so beautifully with saying a word."


Amitabh Bachchan

"Everything about Amitabh Bachchan is so striking. He is a master of both language and emotions. There are many of his movies that I like. Some of them are 'Chupke Chupke', 'Muqaddar Ka Sikandar' and 'Namak Halaal'. We did a film together called 'Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo' directed by Anil Sharma. It was a great experience working with him. Among the younger lot, I like the works of Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh."


'Krishna Ki Atmakatha'

"I am very fond of reading. I read at least one book every day. Reading a
book is like satiating my hunger. 'Krishna Ki Atmakatha' by Manu Sharma is one of my all-time favourite books. I am currently reading 'Sita Prityag'."


'Rajma chawal'

"I am a vegetarian, so I absolutely love anything that is home-cooked and vegetarian. I enjoy having Indian cuisine. I am not a fussy eater at all. I like food and will have anything that is tasty. 'Rajma chawal' is something that I enjoy having the most."



"I am a mountain and sea person. When it comes to mountains, I love going to Shimla, Srinagar and Goa. I haven't travelled to many international travel destinations. I just want to explore my country first and that is what I am doing now. Thanks to my profession, I am blessed to have the opportunity to travel to new destinations. I prefer travelling by road because one can understand one's country closely that way."


Pandit Dev Prabhakar Shastri

"If you ask who my inspiration is, I can definitely say it is my spiritual guru, Pandit Dev Prabhakar Shastri. He is my guide and is my constant source of motivation. He has inspired me at every phase and I look up to him as my idol."
