Name: Gagandeep aka Gagan Greval

Designation: Model cum Actor

Sun Sign: Cancer, 19 July

Educational Experience

I did my schooling from APJ Jalandar and my premeds from Government College for boys. I graduated in 1991 from DMC medical college. So I am a qualified MBBS doctor with four and half years of study and an internship too.

Professional Experience

During my internship, I got a few pictures clicked by a friend. While it was just a hobby for him, the photos turned out to be great. So we sent those to Grasim and as luck would have it, I won the 'Grasim Mr India' title.

Since I was always artistically inclined and opportunities kept coming my way, I decided to take it up as a career option.

The first ramp show that I did was quite some time back, I think it was for NIFT in Delhi. Established designers like Rohit Bal had showcased their lines. Then Excalibur got in touch with me and I did both print and screen ads for them. Later, I came down to Mumbai from Delhi to pursue modelling. I have done ads for Arvind group of textiles, L'oreal, Titan for O&M, Bajaj, Fair and Lovely, BPL, Red and White and Royal Challenge.

For the past one year, I have been planning to switch to acting, which I think is a natural step after modelling. While I was looking forward to offers from the big screen, Vipul Shah approached me for the new show on Sony called Naam Gum Jaayega. Since it is my first project, I wanted to do a character which is by and large closer to my personality. The character Aryan Bhatia fits the bill to the T, so I opted for it.

Current Television scenario

Very Promising. It is the place to be in. Speaking from an actors perspective, it gives you recognition not just in the metros but in far-flung regions as well.

Right and wrong about current marketing scenario

Right and wrong is a subjective issue. What is right to me might not make sense to somebody else. I am very fond of movies and since I get my fill from cable TV, I am not complaining. There is a variety in the programming, so there is something for everybody now.

Five years from now

I want my face to be on all the Billboards in Mumbai! As of now, I am playing safe and sticking to what I can do justice to. But I would like to be more creative and do something more challenging.


Music! Depending on my mood I can listen to anything from rock, pop, jazz to alternative music to ghazals. Amongst the younger Hindi lot I love to listen to Shaan and Lucky Ali.

Being a true movie buff, I just love watching movies. I am quite fond of sports. So when there is a good game of soccer or formula race, I am glued to my TV. Besides that I love to run. Just yesterday I went for a two and half kilometer sprint. I go to the gym regularly which by the way is not just for my profession. Last on my hobby list is cooking. Initially I cooked to survive, now I just love to cook.

Idea of enjoyment

Earlier it was house hunting! Well now that I have a house, it will have to be working.
