Sarwar Ahuja’s ProfileJune 18th, 2009 - 3:57 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
Born and brought up in Hyderabad, Sarwar Ahuja, like most of the middle class responsible sons did his MBA in marketing and finance and took up a well paid job.
But the gods of tinsel town had planned something else for him. He went for a casual audition for the contest ‘Cinestar ki Khoj’ hosted by Zee TV all over India. While his plan was to make something good out of that wonderful evening, it just got better with an announcement loud and clear about Sarwar’s selection from Hyderabad.
The contest took him to Mumbai for which he left behind a well paid job and an angry boss of course to the unreasonable world of dreams. Though taking part in the contest was for fun he soon started loving the excitement that the show bought in his life. His hard work started, there by making him the winner of the biggest contest of aspiring actors ever.
After a lot of running around, scripting, meetings, requests and 2 years of patience his first film called Khanna and Iyer was made and released by Mukta Arts and financed by Zee Television.
Though the film didn’t do well at the box office Sarwar’s caliber, competence and hard work helped him to survive in the worst conditions. His second release was Meri Padosan. He is currently playing the lead in the number one show on NDTV Imagine ‘Jyoti’.
Prior to the contest, Sarwar was always appreciated for his acting and dancing skills and would always become the center of attraction at any event or a party. The contest was the push that he needed and deserved to enter Bollywood.
