Pratik Gandhi

An Engineer turned self made star, who became an overnight sensation after his role as ‘Harshad Mehta’ in the show ‘Scam 1992’


Pratik Gandhi stormed into people’s drawing rooms with ‘Scam 1992’ and right in the middle of the pandemic he became a household name for essaying the role of Harshad Mehta, the notorious big bull of the 90’s. 

An engineer by qualification, Pratik had a full-time job to sustain himself while dabbling in Gujarati theatre in his spare time, all the while living in a one-room-kitchen apartment with his wife, parents and brother. 

It was his sheer determination that led him to his first Gujarati movie ‘Bey Yaar’ which turned out to be commercially successful in 2014.

He continued to sharpen his skills in theatre & worked in regional films knowing one day it would pay-off. 

It was in 2016 when he essayed the role of Raju Bambani in the National Award-winning film ‘Wrong Side Raju’, that Pratik decided to shift into full-time acting. 

From doing part-time jobs at children’s birthday parties to a cell-phone tower repair person to facing endless rejections for not being conventionally good-looking, his journey is truly of a struggler to a self-made star.
