Once the promising youngster of the small screen, Pulkit Samrat is climbing the stairs in B-Town.
Age and Height
Pulkit Samrat was born on 29 December 1986. He is 32 years old as of 2018. He stands 5 feet 8 inches tall.
Pulkit was married to journalist Shweta Rohira in 2014, but the couple got divorced in 2017. He was rumoured to be dating Mouni Roy during his television days and Yami Gautam when the two co-starred in two movies in 2017. However, Samrat denied both of these rumours.
Pulkit was born in Punjab to Sunil and Deepa Samrat. He has a brother, Ullas.
Pulkit got his first break in the popular show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi in 2006. His role of Lakshya Virani earned him much popularity, though he quit the show in 2007. He then appeared in Kaho Na Yaar Hai in 2008. After that, Pulkit didn't get any major projects and turned his attention towards other things.
After making a comeback with Vaibhavi Merchant's musical theatre Taj Express, Samrat made his Bollywood debut with Bittoo Boss in 2012. Despite the failure of his launch project, Samrat was praised for his performance. In 2013, Samrat starred in the comedy Fukrey. Despite being low-budget, the film soon became a huge hit and rose in popularity with time. The film marked Samrat's first success in Bollywood and opened new avenues for him.
Since 2014, most of the films with Samrat as a lead have tanked at the box office. These include O Teri, Bangistan, Sanam Re and Junooniyat. On the other hand, he got supporting roles in a number of successful movies like Jai Ho, Dolly Ki Doli and Veerey Ki Wedding. In 2017, he starred in the sequel Fukrey Returns, which was a hit despite getting mixed reviews. His last release in 2018 was the drama 3 Storeys which was another financial failure.
He departed from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi due to Balaji Telefilms holding his payments, and later filed a case against them. His affair with Yami Gautam was talked-about a lot in the media, and it is widely speculated that she was the reason behind Samrat's divorce.
Samrat's ex-wife Shweta is a rakhi-sister of Salman Khan. After their divorce, it was speculated that Salman was angry with Samrat and stopped endorsing him like he earlier had.
Pulkit Samrat is a foodie and loves eating rajma chawal, butter chicken and laddoo. However, he is also a decent cook and lachcha parantha is his speciality. Kamal Hassan and Madhuri Dixit are his favourite actors. He wants to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
For his television debut, Samrat won the ITA Fresh New Face and Star Parivaar Favorite Naya Sadasya awards in 2006.
Samrat still has great relations with the lead actors of his first show, Ronit Roy and Smriti Irani, and considers them as his mentors.
