Born July 11, 1965, Kumar Gaurav is an Indian film actor and son of the late actor Ranjendra Kumar. In 1981, he made his film debut opposite fellow debutante actress Vijayta Pandit in Love Story, which was produced by his father who also starred alongside him in the film. This film was very popular and played at the box office for a long period of time. His next film was the 1982 release Teri Kasam with actress Poonam Dhillon. Then in 1984, after two years of dating, he married Namrata Dutt, sister of actor Sanjay Dutt. His acting career continued on with Mahesh Bhatt’s film Janam in 1985. His understated performance in this film is still considered his career’s best. Having produced his earlier films, his father tried to revive his career with the 1993 film Phool which had him paired with the top actress of the time Madhuri Dixit. This film also had his father and father-in-law in supporting roles. With no luck from this film either, he took a long break from acting. During this period, he only completed delayed films which were all released in 1996. He then went on to make a few appearances in some television series before being seen on the big screen again in 2000 with his delayed release, Gang. Since then, his career has been very slow and has been seen very rarely on the big screen. His last known film, Bihaad was released in 2009.
