Much like the Noah Centineo phenomenon that took over the internet following the release of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Rohit Saraf has been dubbed as India’s boyfriend after the release of Mismatched, where he starred opposite internet personality, Prajakta Koli.

Saraf has made his presence felt in all his projects, be it as Alia Bhatt’s brother in 2016’s Dear Zindagi, or his performance in 2019’s The Sky Is Pink with Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, and Zaira Wasim.

“Right now, what I want to do is just be very grateful for the fact that I am waking up every day and there’s something for me to do. I am being fortunate enough to go on a film set and work with some incredible people. I just want to enjoy most of it, because I don’t know if I’m going to get films after this. I don’t know if I’m going to get work after this, so while I do have work, I might as well enjoy it as much as I can,” Saraf had told MW before the release of The Sky Is Pink.

This surprising uncertainty is the humility that appears to have charmed the audience. Saraf was also seen in Ludo, where he played an integral role along with actors such as Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Abhishek Bachchan etc. Every film or series that the young actor has starred in has been helmed by big names and yet, Saraf has managed to get himself noticed. All thanks to his charm, boy-next-door good looks, and acting skills.

Saraf was also seen in the Tamil language drama, Kamali From Nadukkaveri, which is loosely inspired from the 1996 smash hit, Kadhal Kottai.

And lest we forget, Saraf doesn’t come from a filmy background, and had no connection to the world of glamour till he set foot in it. However, call it luck or good karma, the actor has been fortunate in the sense that the city and its people have been exceedingly kind to him.

“You can play ten thousand things — five to seven years ago, I planned a lot of things ki okay by this age, I want to do this. According to me, by now, I should have done at least 20 films as the main lead, but that doesn’t happen,” Saraf had said.

Well, life always does work out for the best.
