Early life and education[edit]

Jaideep was born into a Haryanvi Jat family of the Kharkara village in Rohtak district of Haryana state. He completed his acting graduation from FTII in 2008.[5][6]


Jaideep did theatre at a young age but wanted to be an Indian Army officer. However, after failing his SSB interviews, again and again, he ventured into acting. He used to do stage shows in Punjab and Haryana[7]. He started to take acting seriously only after his graduation. He entered the film-world the hard way, without any godfather.[8] In 2008, Ahlawat came to Mumbai. He was first noticed in a negative character in Priyadarshan's Khatta Meetha (2010). In the same year he appeared in Aakrosh with Ajay Devgn.[6] Thereafter he did more films including Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) and Kamal Hasan's Vishwaroopam (2012).[9][10] He was also seen in the series Bard of Blood.
