Rohit Tannan

Creative Advisor

Played as an Image Architect cum Celebrity Fashion Jury in Aamir Khan starrer LAAL SINGH CHADDHA
As an experienced actor who played a key role in ‘Heer Ranjha’, I am glad to share that my current television series, created by Big Synergy and starring famed Punjabi actress Sara Gurpal as Heer topped the TRP Charts. I portrayed the character of a loving and caring father of Heer. This serial began airing on Zee Punjabi on 13th Jan 2020 and gave me the recognition as ‘Shahji’.
It was an emotional experience to see so much love coming from fans and my friends from the industry and outside, whom I have gathered in all these months. That’s what is exciting me currently.
This whole process has given me immense opportunities to pursue strong roles like this. Taking it further, I hope my next few projects will enable me to reach as many people as possible across India, and outside too.
I also played as a investigation officer in Varun Dhawan starrer Bollywood movie ‘October’. And as a Moderator for Indo-Pak meet in the Webseries ‘Special Ops’.
Just to add, I worked with many celebs in the past like Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Late Irrfan Khan, Varun Dhawan, Shweta Tiwari, Virat Kohli, Kumud Mishra etc. in my projects and majorly shot for top-notch brands.
