Randeep Hooda Biography

Randeep Singh Hooda is an Indian film actor who appears in Hindi films.

Background

He was born in a small village called Daseya in the Rohtak district of Haryana to a Hindu Jat family. His mother, Asha Hooda is a social worker and his father, Dr. Ranbir Hooda is a surgeon by profession. When he was 8 years old, he went to a boarding school MNSS in Rai, Sonepat, Haryana.

He then went to Delhi Public School in RK Puram, New Delhi, before moving to Melbourne, Australia in 1995 for higher studies. He got a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and a Masters in Business Management & Human Resource Management.

During that time he peeled onions in a Chinese restaurant, worked in a car-wash, waitered-tables, and drove taxis for 2 years. In 2000, he returned to India and got a job in the marketing department of an airline and was acting in stage theatres.

Film Career

He made his film debut in Monsoon Wedding (2001) where he played an NRI (Non Resident Indian). He got the role in Monsoon Wedding primarily because of his Australian accent rather than his acting skills or good looks.

However, even after a powerful performance in Monsoon Wedding he had to wait for 4 years to get a second project. He finally got lucky and Ram Gopal Varma cast him as the lead in the gritty gangster flick D (2005).

"D" was a turning point in his career and he suddenly became a household name across the country. "D" which supposedly portrays Dawood Ibrahim's real life gave Randeep Hooda a grand entry into tinsel town. He loved the feeling.

He played the lead role in "Karma, Confessions and Holi" (2006) produced by Drena De Niro. For the first time, he played the lead in a romantic movie named Ru-Ba-Ru (2008).
