Hailing from a small village in Haryana, bollywood actor Randeep Hooda was born in 1976 to parents committed to the common good – his mother was a social worker and his father was a surgeon!
The actor did a variety of odd jobs before finally finding his calling in his first movie in 2001 – Monsoon Wedding. Hooda’s film career did not take right off after his first film, but he eventually made some others including D (2005), Darna Zaroori Hai (2006), Karma Aur Holi (2009), and Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010).
Hooda has been in a smattering of other films besides those listed, and is most recently known for his roles in Jism 2 and Heroine. On July 13, 2012 you can also see him in a cameo in the movie Cocktail!
Here are some of the actor’s quotes so you can get a better look into the workings of his mind..
- Seriously I suspected I was a good actor, though I didn’t know it during ‘Monsoon Wedding’. Now I realize the more I learn the less I know about acting… and life.
- At the end of the day an actor is only a cog in the wheel. But experience helps. I’ve done six films in as many years. But I’ve learnt a lot more. I’m losing my unawareness and becoming more humble.
- Everyone wants to be famous, so do I. But I cannot lose sleep over it. Today, I am not a huge box-office hit nor am I on the cover of film magazines.
