Barun Sobti is an Indian television and film actor. He played Arnav Singh Raizada in the serial Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?.
Sobti was brought up and raised in Keerti Nagar of Delhi, India, and received his education in Meera Bagh. He later worked as an operations manager at Jindal Telecom for 7 years. Sobti moved to Mumbai to pursue his acting career after his friend, Karan Wahi, forwarded his pictures for a show he was unable to accept due to budgeting conflicts. Sobti married his wife Pashmeen Manchanda, on 12 December 2010. 
Sobti made his acting debut in 2009 with the daily faith-oriented show Shraddha. He played the male lead, Swayam Khurana, a manipulative photographer with selfish intentions. Sobti later appeared with a cameo in the medical romance, Dill Mill Gayye, in which he played negative role of patient Raj Singh, in rehabilitation for drug abuse. He left to join the serial Baat Hamari Pakki Hai, to portray the comedic character of Shravan Jaiswal, a rich, spoilt, but good-natured young man who engages in a temporary marriage via contract.
Sobti then starred in the television program Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? on Star Plus. He essayed the character Arnav Singh Raizada, a cruel and uncouth businessman. The show shut down with his departure in November 2012.
Sobti has also hosted the 2012 Star Parivaar Awards and performed in the Star Parivaar Live Concert 2012 in Birmingham, UK. He was titled the 3rd Sexiest Asian Man by UK magazine Eastern Eye in 2013.
