Biography/Wiki

Rajeev Khandelwal was born on 16 October 1975 (age 43 years; as in 2018) in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. He did his schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya, Jaipur and enrolled himself in St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad to attain a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. Khandelwal performed at a stage show when he was in 3rd standard. From here, he developed an interest in acting.

When Rajeev was in 9th standard, he gave an audition for Punjab Doordarshan and got selected. Unfortunately, he could not feature in the show as it was a 3-month outdoor shoot and his father did not approve for it. Being from a family with an army background, it was never easy for him to join the TV industry. Rajeev once even gave up on his acting hopes and decided to join the army. But his form was rejected.

During his final year of college, he was thrown out of the house due to his ambiguous nature. He was so annoyed with the incident that he went to Delhi and lived with a few drivers at his cousin’s friend’s flat. Khandelwal started his career by making documentaries and writing scripts.
