Veer Rajwant Singh is an actor famous for his role as Nikhil in What The Folks! (Dice Media) and Gaurav(G) in The Reunion (The Zoom Studios ).
He was born on 14th February 1991 in a Punjabi Sikh family. He is from Chandigarh. He always wanted to be an actor.
How did his journey start?
His father took him to Bangra classes and theatre classes too. He was first seen in a dance reality show Boogie Woogie. That time he was just 7 years old.
After that he got an offer in Imtiza Ali’s movie Jab We Met in 2007 in which he played a small role of Geet’s (Kareena Kapoor) younger brother. You can see him as a background dancer in Nagada song with Shahid Kapoor. He was 17-year-old at that time.
And then came a turning point in his life when he lost his father, he was just 15- years- old at that time, and then he had to choose between earning for his family or following his passion. His father was a Government officer in Haryana Government Services so he got the job of a clerk in that department. He worked there for more than six years but he was not happy with what he was doing so after his sister’s marriage he moved to Mumbai to chase his dreams but he didn’t get any work.
He sold his car but after some time he left with empty pockets so he again came to Chandigarh and joined his government job again. He got promotion but that was not what he was meant for and after working again for more than 1.5 years he again moved to Mumbai to follow his dreams.
This time he got the job of an assistant casting director and he casted for Little Things (web series of 2016) and Ascharyachakit! (web series 2018). That was the year he got his first role in a short miniseries “Neta Sab Ki Leta hai.” He wanted to do acting from the beginning so he left the work of casting director.
He got fame from his role in “wtf!” as Nikhil Solanki and Gaurav in “The Reunion”.Veer is also seen in Little things season 1 and 2 in a small role. Veer’s comedic timing is amazing and because of this, we have seen him many times in Filter copy, MensXP and Being Indian videos.
Why Web Series and not anything else?
“In the web space, people relate to the character you’re playing and not to actors.”
