Gulshan Grover (Punjabi: ਗੁਲਸ਼ਨ ਗਰੋਵਰ; born 21 September 1955) is an Indian actor, who has appeared in several Hindi and Punjabi language films.

Early life

He was born to Ramrakhi Grover and Bishambar Nath Grover.Grover comes from a Punjabi background. After Independence, His parents migrated from Rawalpindi to Delhi, where his father Bishambar Nath Grover ran a cloth store at Trinagar. He has two brothers and two sisters.

School Days

During his childhood he studied at Government school in Trinagar.He was part of the dramatics and debating society at school and his acting life started playing the part of Abhimanyu in his first play. He was passionate about acting from childhood. When guests were at home, he would enact scenes from various plays.During his school days he used to help his father at their shop.Grower once worked as door-to-door salesperson for washing powder and phenyl assisting his father in days of penury.

College Days

He graduated from Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University in BCom(Honors).During his college days he was elected as cultural secretary. He participated in plays and, sometimes, girls from Miranda House and Indraprastha College for Women invited him to play the male protagonist in their plays. Side by side, He joined the Little Theatre Group. He was presented the Madan Mohan (music director)Award for doing the college proud in extra-curricular activities. Subsequently, He enrolled for the MCom course but, by then, He had made up my mind: He wanted to become an actor. Fascinated by the lifestyle of rich kids, he planned to do something which would make him popular.

Grower the Actor : Days of Struggle

He wanted to try his luck in Bombay and decided to go there and promised his parents that he would return in two months. In Bombay, he stayed in all sorts of places - dormitories, guest-house verandahs. Since he never had a fixed address, money-orders sent from home got misplaced. There were days when he went without food.

But even after six months, He had achieved nothing. When He returned home, He had lost so much weight that His family forbade him from going back. But, a couple of months later, He turned a deaf ear to protests from his mother and joined Roshan Taneja's acting school.

Sanjay Dutt, Anil Kapoor and Mazhar Khan were his batch-mates at the acting school, where He was taught that there was no conventional way of becoming a successful actor. For one year, He just concentrated on acting. He have had a high opinion of Roshan Taneja - he gave him a job at the institute as soon as he was through with the course. Soon enough, He received his first pay cheque - Rs 4,000!

During his years of struggle, whenever he ran out of money, he would head for the house of a friend - Vinay Shukla - to grab a bite. In one interesting incident just as he was about to enter vinay's home, He saw Shabana Azmi sitting there. His socks were ragged and torn and feeling ashamed of this He felt like returning rather than taking off his shoes in front of her.But a hungry Grower stayed on even he felt uncomfortable throughout.

On another occasion, producer Rajiv Mehra invited him for his wedding. Anil Kappor and Grower always attended functions together and went to a tailor's shop to borrow suits. But while the tailor offered Anil Kapoor suits stitched for other actors,as he was convinced that kapoor would become a star some day, Grower used to get shirts which had been rejected by customers.

Beginning of Career

By the fall of 1980 Gulshan got his first big break in the film Rocky (1981 film) produced and being directed by sunil dutt to launch his son Sanjay Dutt.Luck was favoring Grower when Anil kapoor's father Surinder Kapoor who had seen him in a play at the acting school offered me a role in a film Hum Paanch (1980 film) starring Naseeruddin Shah, Raj Babbar and the father of all villains Amrish Puri. Well this sort of started a chain reaction for grower when Shabana Azmi saw his acting in Ham Paanch got him a role in Mohan Kumar's Avtaar(1983) starring Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi. Through Surinder Kapoor he was introduced to Rajiv Mehra who offered him a role in Ek Jaan Hain Hum (1983)starring Rajiv Kapoor, Divya Rana, Shammi Kapoor.All these films did well, but his launch pad break as a villain came with Sohni Mahiwal(1984) starring the likes of Sunny Deol, Poonam Dhillon,Zeenat Aman, and the veteran Pran.
