Delhi boy Gaurav first discovered his passion for acting and drama while at boarding school, SelaQui in Dehra Dun. A disciplined go-getter, Gaurav did well in sports, athletics and academics. With his debating and elocution skills he proved that he had the gift of the gab. But he was always inclined towards performing arts, although his family’s successful seating and upholstery business (Geeken Seating Collections) made business an almost natural choice.
Despite making a practical choice to study business at a university in America first, and then in India, Gaurav’s acting bug took over. With some parental skepticism but with support from his elder brother Saurav Pandey who was already acting in Mumbai, Gaurav moved to the city and trained at Kreating Characters Acting School. He also completed his business education and decided to give acting his full attention.
Gaurav found multiple breaks with ads like Colgate Plax, OLX, KFC, Volkswagon and other leading brands. An easily recognizable face on TV thanks to these commercials, Gaurav found his first film break with the supporting role of Shaunty in HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIYA in 2014. Continuing to audition, Gaurav also found a major role in the forthcoming Remo D’Souza film with Tiger Shroff, A FLYING JATT.
Gaurav’s biggest break came with the super popular web series by Y Films, A MANS WORLD. Being part of a unique concept and with a cast of talented female actors in the team, Gaurav got a chance to display his acting potential and the right kind of exposure.
Now, with a successful, contemporary start in the world of the web, Gaurav looks forward to bigger opportunities.
