Ruslaan Mumtaz is an Indian actor who works in the Mumbai based Hindi film industry, colloquially known as Bollywood. He is the son of Maharashtrian actress Anjana Mumtaz. His mother is Marathi speaking Hindu (Anjana Manjrekar) who starred in many Marathi, Hindi films and father Sajid Mumtaz who is Muslim and is an Air India official.
He made his acting debut in the romantic drama MP3 - Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar, earned him positive reviews through dancing and firmed with the singer KK. Film critic Taran Adarsh from indiaFM wrote, "Ruslaan does very well. Good-looking, camera-friendly and confident, he has the potential to be the new kid on the block."
Mumtaz was the original choice for the lead role of Jamal Malik in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire (2008) but was later dropped from the project as Boyle chooses to be realistic and considered Ruslaan too good looking for the part". Despite missing out on the opportunity to work with Boyle and established actors Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, he hopes to gain success in the forthcoming projects.
