We all remember the scene from the film Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha where Kajol is travelling in flight for the first time and chaos is created due to the weather condition. It was Kajol’s fiance, Rahul in the movie who made her travel through the air even when she was not comfortable with it. This supporting character in the film is none other than Bijay Anand, who played the role of Rahul.
After 19 years of the film release, the actor looks totally different now. Bijay shifted his track from acting to spirituality by becoming a yogi and devoted his life to yoga. The actor got married to Marathi movie and TV actress Sonali Khare and the couple have a cute little daughter, Sanaya Anand.
After his long break, actor made a comeback with the mythological show on television, Siya Ke Ram where he portrayed the character of Sita’s father, King Janak. At the age of 26, the actor suffered from Arthritis when he decided to dedicate his attention to health.
He is now a veteran yoga teacher. Bijay has also talked about his struggle with fame, he said that he was offered 22 movies after ‘Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha’ as lead actor, but his heart told him to quit. He added that before the movie, all he wanted was to become famous as an actor, but when he did become famous, he didn’t wanted to stay in the industry.
He is currently playing the role of Mr. Noon in Balaji’s new show, Dil Hi To Hai. His character is being loved by many and his bonding with his co-actors is great on the sets. He will also be seen as Mr. Jaspal Singh Vora, Sunny Leone’s father in the web series based on Sunny’s life, Kirenjeet Kaur.
