Raman Trikha : Actor


Educational Experience

I've done my schooling from Modern School Vasant Vihar in Delhi. I did my B.A. through correspondence as I came to Bombay after I completed my twelfth.

Professional Experience

I came to Bombay in '93. I was lucky to get my first break soon after I came here in the form of Banegi Apni Baat (BAB), where I played the character of Rahul. The serial went on for five years and I shot for about 320 episodes. BAB was my major break. Then I did a serial called Maan for Channel 9 and Love Marriage for Zee TV. At present I am doing a serial called Kumkum which airs on Star Plus.

I have also done around 12-13 music videos. Hans Raj Hans'Chorni, Sardol Sikander's Haiya Ho, Sukhdev's Kudi India Ki and Dil Hindustani Ho Gaya are some of them. I have also done a lot of Punjabi remixes. I believe music videos are show reels. The serve as a platform to show people that you can sing and dance and are a great medium to display your potential and be noticed.

I have also done three Tamil movies called Monisha en Lisa (Monalisa), Edium (Heart) and Irrieldium Kadam (One-sided love). There is another Telugu film which is under production.

I have just completed shooting for Ram Gopal Verma's production Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon, which has been directed by Chandan Arora (who recently got the Star Screen Award for Best Editing for the movie Company). I play a central character in this situational comedy which revolves around three people. The other star cast include Rajpal Yadav and Antara Mali.

I'm really excited about this movie. The TV and theater promotions will start around the third week of April and the movie is scheduled for release on 20 June.

Television as career choice

I was always interested in drama and arts since childhood. My passion for acting got me to Bombay (I'm basically a Delhi boy!).

The most important factor was my parents' support. I had their full backing and they told me to go ahead with what I wanted to do. I'm here because of them and their support.

Current Television scenario

Television has done wonders to the careers of a lot of people. It has revived a lot many actors who had faded away with time. Aspiring young actors have got immediate exposure due to the medium of television.

There is so much work in the industry right now and if a person is good, he or she can really come up.

Right and wrong about current television scenario

As I already said, the good thing about the current television scenario is that there is a lot of work in the industry, which gives aspiring actors a chance to show their talent and make a mark for themselves.

The bad thing is that there is a huge burnout factor in this medium. If actors don't control themselves in terms of their work, they can be washed out from the industry. So an actor has to choose the right kind of roles and also not be repetitive in the type of characters he or she plays, only then will they be able to reach greater heights.

Five years from now

Right on the top in terms of work!! I will surely have made a mark for myself in the film industry. I also see myself very happy and content with life.


I love driving and listening to music (simultaneously of course!!). I have a passion for cars and music is a must in my car !

Idea of enjoyment

To be happy is a mental state of mind; it is a very relative term. Sometimes the smallest of things can make me happy. I believe that to be happy in life, one needs to avoid negativity and have a healthy outlook to life.
