Payal Rohatgi's Biography


 
Name : Payal Rohatgi
Birth date : November 9th, 1982
Height : 5'6
Profession : Model, Actress
Nickname: Pari

A computer engineer by profession, Payal decided to try her hand in Bollywood after she was chosen in the last nine beauties in an Indian Beauty Pageant. She moved to Bombay thereafter, and since then there has been no looking back for this talented, attractive, young woman. She started her screen career by modeling for popular brands like Amul, Nirma, and Nescape, and was noticed immediately. Now she is spoken of as a Bollywood actress in the same caliber as Neha Dhupia, and Mallika Sherawat.

Payal made her Bollywood debut in Harry Baweja's Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai?, a Hindi remake of the Hollywood teen flick American Pie. However, she went unnoticed in the multi-starrer. She shot into the limelight by doing some small budget films, but she seemed to have a change of heart as she realised that these small budget films were not of her sensibility as these films released badly and were shot badly.

In 2006, she signed her first A grade Bollywood film, 36 China Town, as one of the lead characters. The movie starred already established stars like Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, and Paresh Rawal. Even amongst all these stars she got noticed.

Later in that year, she appeared in the critically acclaimed Corporate where, ironically, she played the part of an item girl.

In 2007, she will have her first release as Priyadarshan's film Dhol which is produced by Percept Picture Company. She is playing a positive second lead character, paired opposite of Arbaaz Khan.
