Amit Sadh is an Indian-British television and film actor. He began his career with the television serial Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr and made his feature film debut with Phoonk 2 in 2010. Amit quit his studies after standard 12 to pursue his dream of becoming an actor and shifted to Mumbai.
Amit was born on 5 June 1983 in Birmingham, England. He left his education after 12th standard to pursue acting and sports. He opted acting as his career and is trained in New York’s The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. He was first seen in the serial ‘Kyun Hota Hai Pyaar’ directed by Nupur Asthana where he played the character of Aditya followed by ‘Kohinoor’ ‘Durgesh Nandini’ and appeared as a participant on the television reality shows like ‘Bigg Boss’, ‘Fear Factor’ and ‘Nach Baliye’
Amit’s debut movie Phoonk 2 was a disaster at the box office and failed to garner much appreciation. His second film Maximum co-starring Naseeruddin Shah and Sonu Sood met with the same fate as Phoonk 2. Amit redeemed himself with his next film, Kai Po Che, which released in 2013. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Kai Po Che was based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel 3 Mistakes of My Life and starred Amit Sadh, Sushant Singh Rajput and Rajkummar Rao in the lead. Kai Po Che tells the story of how three friends struggle to open a cricket shop in the backdrop of continuous communal tension in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. This story of friendship and human triumph was an instant hit with the audience and critics alike. Amit essayed the role of Omkar Shastri and his performance was very well received by everyone.
Amit’s 2016 releases include Sultan, starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead, and Akira, starring Sonakshi Sinha.
Amit Sadh is reportedly keen to climb the Mount Everest. He has set a date for 2019, and will be taking 6 months off his schedule. He will also undergo training for a couple of years and follow a strict fitness routine. He said, “A lot of permissions have to be taken and it’s not easy to climb Everest. About Rs 35 lakh will be needed for this and currently, I am in the process of figuring out the logistics. I am also locking the team that I am going to be climbing with.”
