Navin Nischol Biography

Navin Nischol is a popular Indian actor. He made his debut with the Hindi film Sawan Bhadon in 1970. The film was a box office hit and Nischol was constantly in demand for several years.

Early Life

He was also the first gold medalist from the Film and Television Institute of India to make it big. He starred in several super-hits, such as Victoria No. 203 (1972) and Dhund (1973). At one time, he was popularly known as the "poor man's Rajesh Khanna" - an allusion to his being an inferior copy of the much-more-in-demand Rajesh Khanna.

Later on, Nischol switched over to character roles and carved out a successful career for himself in television. One of his most successful serials on television was Dekh Bhai Dekh, co-starring Shekhar Suman and Farida Jalal. He also starred in the Punjabi films Aasra Pyar Da (1983) and Mahaul Theek Hai (1999).

Personal Life

Navin studied at the Bangalore Military School. Navin was first married to Dev Anand's niece, Neelu Kapur, sister of Shekhar Kapur.

Shortly after that, Padmini started having an affair with director Prakash Mehra, and broke up with Navin.

Navin then had an affair with Pimma, a Delhi-based married woman with two children. Navin then married divorcee Geetanjali. On 24 April 2006, his wife committed suicide by hanging at her residence.
