Personal life[edit]

Mohit Sehgal was born in Chandigarh, Punjab, but was brought up and received his schooling in Delhi. Upon finishing his education, he graduated from a College and eventually moved to Mumbai.


Mohit, began his acting career in 2007 as Vicky, a college boy in the movie Delhi Heights. Mohit then made his television debut as a protagonist in STAR One's Miley Jab Hum Tum. He portrayed the character of Samrat, the loud, wealthy and flamboyant hottie, and the love interest of Gunjan Bhushan (Sanaya Irani). Additionally, he briefly hosted the second series of Zara Nachke Dikha Season 2 on STAR Plus with Sanaya Irani.[1]

After the end of Miley Jab Hum Tum, Mohit took a break. In 2012, Mohit starred in a comedy film titled, Family Aa Rahi Hai . Mohit's next major television role was as Siddharth Kapoor, the male protagonist of Mujhse Kuchh Kehti...Yeh Khamoshiyaan, which premiered on 12 November 2012. However, Mohit decided to quit the show, stating various reasons for his decision. The show was already under the scanner due to its poor ratings and hence, it had to be replaced by Saraswatichandra on 25 February 2013. Mohit plaed the role of Haider Sheikh, the new lead in Zee TV's popular show Qubool Hai opposite Ketki Kadam. Haider is a mature and charming man with a secret who brings in a lot of ambiguity in the equation that Zoya shares with Siddiqui family.
