I spent my childhood and schooling days in DammamSaudi ArabiaIHe did my schooling in International Indian School of Dammam. In 2000 I moved back to Mumbai and pursued a degree in Hotel Management from IHM MumbaiDadar Catering College. I was in a band during my college days called the "Thousand Decibels". After completing my degree I moved to Muscat in Oman where my family was located and started working at the Sheraton Hotel as a marketing executive for about a year. I later returned to India to pursue my acting career and participated in the Gladrags Mega Model Manhunt contest in 2004 and won the award for 'Most Popular Model'. I started my acting career with Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi for Balaji Telefilms on MTV India after being selected from a nation wide talent hunt. In April 2007, I started dating television actress Shraddha Nigam. On 2 December 2008 the we got married in a private ceremony in Goa. Near the end of 2009 both mutually filed for divorce. Jaskaran Singh from Miley Jab Hum Tum is my cousin .

Before starting my television acting career I did many modeling assignments, ramp shows, advertisements and even hosted a radio show. Later I entered the Gladrags Mega Model Manhunt Contest in 2004 and ended up winning the award for the 'Most Popular Model.' Then through a nationwide talent hunt contest by Balaji Telefilms I, along with five others, got selected to play leads in an MTV show Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi. Then followed Princess Dollie Aur Uska Magic Bag finally ending up in Kasautii Zindagii Kay in a negative role. After that, I did Solhah Singaarr on Sahara One and some short stints on C.I.D. andParrivaar, before doing the popular role of Dr. Armaan Mallik in Dill Mill Gaye . I anchored the STAR One reality television show Zara Nachke Dikha. I was the second runner-up in the dance reality show -Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 3. From September–December 2009 I co-hosted the show Idea Rocks India on Colors TV.
