Aman Verma’s professional life is a classic case of triumph, loss and resurgence. Born on October 11, 1979; the actor made quite an impact on television and even showed promise in the movies, before he was caught in a casting couch scandal. The actor is now a contestant in Bigg Boss 9.
Aman Verma – TV serials and shows
Aman Verma’s very first appearance was in TV serial called ‘Pachpan Khambe Laal Diwar’ for Doordarshan in 1997. He proved to be quite a worthy contender with amazing lineup of TV serials like Shanti, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Samundar. The actor went on to host the first two seasons of Indian idol and the game show ‘Khuljja Sim Sim’. He went on to win awards for his roles in Kehta Hai Dil, in 2003 and ‘Virasat’ in 2006.
Aman Verma shone in the role of ‘Sumeet’ in ‘Teen Bahuraniyaan’. He was seen on Sony TV’s ‘Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao’ in 2009. In 2015, he played ACP Diler Kumar in ‘Hum Ne Li Hai Shapath’
Aman Verma – stint in movies
The 5 feet 7 inch tall Aman Verma debuted in Bollywood with Sangharsh (1999). He has done lead roles in movies in ‘Pran Jaye Par Shaan Na Jaye’ and ‘Koi Hai’. He was touted to be the next Shah Rukh Khan, considering he was migrating from TV shows to films. Of course, Aman Verma’s films didn’t meet the response that he needed. Apart from Baghban, all his films Home Delivery, Tum – A Dangerous Obsession and Tees Maar Khan were nothing to rave about.
Aman Verma – Casting Couch and Naughty Boy Controversy
Coming close to the sting operation on Shakti Kapoor in 2005, Aman Verma found himself trapped as he was caught on camera propositioning a model ‘Ruchi’. He even teased saying that he was a ‘naughty boy’ while flirting with her and asking her to show her moves. The sting operation was carried by Suhaib Ilyasi for India TV. Aman Verma was found begging Suhaib to erase the camera footage.
Of course, the video was never deleted and turned to be a huge blotch in Aman Verma’s career. Most movie stars distanced away from him and for a few years, he was out of work, before he came back with a few TV shows; that brought him to limelight again.
Aman Verma – Girlfriend
Aman Verma was supposed to be dating actress Ankita Bharghava but the two have not confirmed about any development between them. The actor says, “Since, I am a difficult person, I need someone who can understand me. The most important thing is that the person should be someone worth having a great conversation with. Things like eyes, a great body and sense of humor, all take a back seat after sometime.”
It remains to be seen if Aman Verma would be a naughty boy once again or play it safe this Bigg Boss 9
