Those who have seen Adarsh Gourav in Priyanka Chopra and Rajkummar Rao’s The White Tiger would agree with the fact he outshone both the actors with his rock-solid performance. The actor was even nominated in the Best Actor category for The White Tiger for BAFTA 2021. People appreciated his craft and wanted to know all about the actor who has managed to sweep all of us with his acting prowess.

He started his career in 2010 with My Name Is Khan and was born and brought up in Jamshedpur. In an interview with IANS, he told how it was an advantage to be brought up in Jamshedpur.

He said, "I think the fact that you do not get everything in life that you want, and how to deal with it (is an advantage). If I give a small example, at the age of nine, if I wanted a pair of Nike shoes, I wouldn't get that because either there was no showroom of Nike back then or my father thought it was an unnecessary expense. It wouldn't have been the same with a boy from a wealthy family. Not that I was upset or anything but we always knew what we could afford and what we couldn't. Having said that since my parents had a huge passion for travelling, we would go on a family vacation every year.”

He also reflected on his childhood, on how he never went abroad for vacations, “We did not go abroad for those vacations but in India, as a child, I have travelled everywhere, and I know how beautiful my country is. We went to Himachal Pradesh, we went to Goa and also different places in South India. I felt the diversity, and whenever we travelled by train, we would chat with fellow passengers and the journeys were filled with memory."

He also added that it was his middle-class upbringing that made him more compassionate and empathetic towards others.

"I know the advantage of being middle-class. My spectrum towards life is wider because I have interacted with people from different walks of life. My compassion and empathy towards other people and their condition is more. I value my privilege of having good food, going to a good school, living in a good house and everything that my parents have given me. Honestly, I do not want to change those values,” added the actor.
