Early life[edit]

Sumit Gulati was born in Delhi, india and was raised in Geeta Colony.

Right from his school days, Sumit, who has been working in Jhumroo for the past four years, showed more inclination towards theatre than studies. While in school, he attended the Theatre in Education programme run by the National School of Drama. He also joined amateur theatre troupes when he was in Class IX.

Financial constraints meant that Delhi's Sumit Gulati, the actor who plays Kanhaiya, the compounder in Talvar, had to drop out even from the correspondence course he was pursuing and take up a job. But his love for acting made him feel suffocated at work, which he left in a short while, making everyone say, 'Iss ladke se kuch nahi hoga.' But today, the 25-year-old from East Delhi's Geeta Colony has been part of films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Phantom and Talvar, and will be seen in Hansal Mehta's next.

After school, Sumit saw some hard times - he lost his father and later had to take up a job that had nothing to do with acting. When he realized that acting was the only thing he could do well, Sumit asked his mother for some time to pursue his passion. He started conducting theatre workshops and got a role in a soap, Kyunki Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai. He also joined a group of amateur filmmakers and started acting in their short movies. It was then that he discovered he liked acting in front of the camera more than acting for a live audience.
