Rajput’s Bollywood career began with the series “Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil,” which led to being cast in “Pavitra Rishta,” a popular series that brought him several awards.
His film debut in “Kai Po Che!” earned him critical praise and award nominations as well.
Other popular titles of his include “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story,” chronicling the life of a famous cricket player, as well as Netflix’s “Drive.”
