Armaan Kohli Biography

Born : 23 March 1972

Height: 6' 0″ (1.8 m)



Armaan Kohli was born on March 23, 1972 to Nishi, an actress, and Rajkumar Kohli, a director. He made his entry into the world of film at a young age as a child artist in his father’s films Badle Ki Aag (1982) and Raaj Tilak (1984).

Eight years later, Kohli returned to acting once again with his father’s film Virodhi (1992). Incidentally, he was originally cast as the lead in Deewana (1992), which ended up being Shah Rukh Khan’s very first film release, after Kohli left the project due to creative differences. Over the next five years, he appeared in several Hindi films including Kohra (1993), Juaari (1994), Veer (1995) and Qahar (1997), but was not very successful in his endeavours.

Armaan Kohli resumed acting five years later – with his name changed temporarily to Munish Kohli – in a multi-starrer project by Rajkumar Kohli, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani (2002). The following year, he appeared in a supporting role in J.P. Dutta’s LOC Kargil (2003), before taking yet another long break from films.

In 2013, Kohli participated in the seventh season of the reality show Bigg Boss. Though this turned out to be a rather controversial period of his life, Kohli claimed the experience of being on the show helped him greatly and was very enriching to his personal growth.

Kohli returned to films after this brief experience on television, with a supporting role in Jagdish Sidana’s Dil Bhi Khaali Jeb Bhi Khaali (2014). He has also starred in Sooraj R. Barjatya’s family drama, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015). He has expressed his desire to get into production, and perhaps remake some of his father’s films including Jaani Dushman (1979), Naukar Biwi Ka (1983), and Raaj Tilak (1984).
