Life Journey

Rajeev Khandelwal completed his schooling at Kendriya Vidyalaya, Jaipur. Later he joined St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad to attain a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. He performed at a stage show when he was in 3rd standard. From here, Rajeev developed an interest in acting. When Rajeev was in 9th standard, he gave an audition for Punjab Doordarshan and got chosen. Unluckily, Rajeev could not feature in the show as it was a 3-month outdoor shoot and his father did not allow for it.

Being from a family with an army background, it was never smooth for him to join the acting industry. During his last year of college, Rajeev was thrown out of the home due to his obscure nature. Rajeev was so annoyed with the conflict that he moved to Delhi and lived with some drivers at his cousin’s friend’s flat. He began his career by creating documentaries and writing scripts.
