"his - story"
Manish Chaudhari was born, 20 April 1969.
The youngest of 3 brothers, Saket and Sidharth (10 and 7 years older) spoiled their youngest brother endlessly.
Manish's mother Usha was an English Literature Teacher (and later school vice-principal) and his father Swarajya worked for the Govt. of India in the Ministry of Industry and then for the Commonwealth Secretariat and thus traveled overseas extensively.
When Manish was a young boy, his mother entertained him with travel and adventure stories about his Maternal Great Grandfather who lead caravans across the Himalayan passes into Russia in the early 1900's.
Manish also spent a lot of time with his Paternal Grand Father who vowed that Manish was destined for greatness.
All this culminated in a great love for Language, History, Travel and Story Telling.
Manish discovered his love for acting as a 15 year old school boy attending St. Paul's School in Darjeeling, in the Eastern Himalayas.
As an extremly shy teenager he was roped in to be the "prompter" in a school play.
As fate would have it, the lead actor broke his arm one week before the opening night and Manish was thrust onto the stage in his stead.
After school, and while Manish was completing his BA Hons. English at Kirori Mal College Delhi University, he joined the College Theatre Society as well as another amateur theatre group.
On 19 June 1995 Manish left Delhi and made Mumbai his home, looking for a career in the movies...
In recent years, Manish received a "Best actor in a negative role" nomination at the Screen Awards 2010 for his role as Sunil Puri in "Rocket Singh - Salesman of the Year".
This was followed by the leading role of Narcotic Cop Usman Ali Malik in the ground-breaking TV Cop Drama Powder.
In 2011 Manish received praise for his role as soccer coach John William in the Sports Film "Stand By", followed in 2012 by powerful characters, Dharmesh Zaveri in "Blood Money", Mangal Singh Tomar in the Block Buster Hit "Jannat 2" and Taradutt in the 3D hit "Raaz 3".
2013 is bumper packed and brings us the comic thriller Mickey Virus, hospital drama Ankur Arora Murder Case, gritty hinterland thriller Maazii and Anurag Kashyap's much anticipated Bombay Velvet (to name but a few)...
Manish's constant inspiration is his 2 kids, Zanskar (12) and Zaarya (10).
Even though his kids live in Delhi, and he isn't afforded the opportunity to see them as often as he would like to, they still remain the centre of his universe.
Ask Zanskar anything about cinema and you will get a brilliantly informative answer and his beautiful Zaarya is a sparkling entertainer in her own right.
Manish looks foward to the next chapter of "his-story" ...
