Having no Godfather in the Industry Raj Saluja, aka Akshat started this journey on his own and gradually reaped the attention and first marked his foray into the entertainment industry as an actor in a TV reality show called Best Cine Star Ki Khoj. He then made his debut with the Pooja Bhat film Dhokha in 2007. Raj was also seen in movies like Tum Mile, Happi, Jor Jaar Mukluk Taar, Classmate, 31st October, and PM Narendra Modi.

It was during Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl which was created by Raj and his friend, Raj decided to produce the film and hence took it to Balaji Telefilms to helm the project. Now, shifting to other streams in the entertainment industry is not new, isn’t it? However, doing the same requires immense courage. “It was my instinct of fight to Survival, made me decide to shift gear”. Dream Girl was a super hit.
