Arjun Mathur, a British-Indian actor, was born on October 18, 1981, and works primarily in Bollywood films, web series, and television serials. He starred in the British drama series ‘Indian Summers’ and now stars in the Amazon Original series ‘Made in Heaven,’ for which he was nominated for an International Emmy Award for ‘Best Performance by an Actor.’
He was born in London, England, but grew up in India, in the cities of New Delhi and Mumbai. His father, Rakesh Mathur, is a manager.
He has a younger sister, Sonia, and an older brother, Gautam. When he was thirteen years old, his mother, Reyno Mathur, died in a vehicle accident. Mathur attended New Delhi’s St. Columbas School, Mumbai’s St. Mary’s School, and New Delhi’s The British School. He completed his A-Level education at Oaklands College in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
Mira Nair and Farhan Akhtar discovered Arjun at the same time through their short films ‘Migration’ and ‘Positive,’ both for the ‘Aids Jaago’ project, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2007. Before the streaming revolution, he received plaudits for the youth-centric mini-series ‘Bring On The Night,’ which was the first of its kind created in India in 2012. He was last seen in the suspense thriller series ‘The Gone Game,’ which was set, planned, shot, and released in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown.
