Mohnish Bahl is an Indian actor working in the Indian film industry and on Indian television. He is the son of actress Nutan and Lt. Cdr. Rajnish Bahl,[3] and a prominent member of the Mukherjee-Samarth family.


Bahl started his career as a lead actor and did films like Dancer, Bekaraar, Teri Bahon Mein, Meri Adalat, Purana Mandir and Itihaas. None of these stabilized his status as a lead, despite the success of Purana Mandir.

Later in 1989, he was reintroduced, this time as a villain in the cult blockbuster Maine Pyar Kiya, which starred Salman Khan and Bhagyashree.[4] The success of the film transformed Bahl's career and led to him being a very busy villain and character actor.[4] Other notable roles he did was in the 1992 hit Deewana which was the debut of Shah Rukh Khan. He was a regular in Soraaj R Bharjatya films such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!, Hum Saath Saath Hain.
