The beginning of the talent
On August 14th, 1995, a beautiful baby boy was born to the Goyal family of Delhi and was named Deepanshu. This little boy was living a regular life from going to school, finishing homework, to working hard during exams, to playing with kids of his age.
Everything was going normal, until one day, his 6th-grade math teacher offered him a role in a school play. Fortunately, the skit was good, but the performance of this talented lad went exceptionally well. All the applause received became the seed of motivation for acting in his heart.
Taking small steps in the right direction
Now, Deepanshu, unknowingly, started seeking for opportunities where he can showcase his newly found talent. This little aspiring bud started participating more and more in similar activities to explore further. He never left a single opportunity of acting. Nonetheless, he used to entertain his classmates as well through his act, proving that his schools played an important role in laying his roots well. This continued even when he switched his school to Gandhi Memorial, and the talent was flourishing day by day.
Realizing his true potential

Years keep passing similarly, and so does his passion. While pursuing B.Com from Shyam Lal College, he got various opportunities to live his dream, both inside and outside the classroom. During his time at college, he started getting small opportunities. Taking every opportunity, his strides never ceased. And, ultimately the smiles and laughs shared with his classmates made him realize he wanted to take acting up as a profession.
The chances he had been waiting for
After college, witnessing that he had finally found what he wanted to do, he moved to the city of dreams, Mumbai. For him, acting was natural, but all the other required complementary things were pulling him down. The showbiz industry is never gentle on those who try to enter without connections. That time, a smooth sailing boat hits the iceberg, since the journey to the screen does not seem as easy now as he’d hoped for and his dreams might shatter. However, when God decides your destination, he also shows you the right path to reach there.
Without a job, surviving into a new city forced him to think about giving up. But at that very moment, his most significant support system, his family came to his rescue. Along with them, it was one of his friends, Amar Sethi, played the role of a real savior for him and helped him in staying and stuck by him even during his bad times.
The long-awaited Success!
Finally, this young talented actor found his break! He landed a role in Zindagi Ke Crossroads (SonyTv) and all it brings an end to all his troubles, pain, and hardships. And, from there on, the journey just continued!
