Arjun Rampal is an award winning Indian actor who appears in Bollywood films. He is also a popular fashion model. His debut movie - 'Moksha' was released in 2001 and was directed by Ashok Mehta. However, this film was released after his second film, 'Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat', in which he appeared with Sunil Shetty and Aftab Shivdasani. Although both films did not perform well at the box office, his performances in both films were lauded by critics.
In 2002, he won the Award from the International Indian Film Academy for 'Face of the Year'. Since his debut, he has worked steadily in films such as 'Aankhen' (2002), which was successful. But his films like 'Dil Hai Tumhaara' (2002), 'Yakeen' (2005) and 'Ek Ajnabee' (2005), did not succeed commercially.
In 2008, Rampal starred in 'Rock On!!', in which his role as the lead guitarist of the band was widely acclaimed, getting him several awards, including the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor and Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. In 2010, Arjun won critical acclaim for his portrayal of 'Prithvi' in the Prakash Jha multi-starrer blockbuster, 'Raajneeti'.
Arjun Rampal married former Miss India and supermodel Mehr Jesia and they have two daughters, Mahikaa, born on 17 January 2002 and Myra, born June 2005.
