Amit Riyaan is an Indian actor. He is known for his versatile range of the characters he has played and is best acknowledged for his impactful performances in Atkan Chatkan, Tandoor and Rajwade and Sons.

Early life[edit]

After completing his graduation in engineering in Polymer technology, he opted for a post graduation diploma in Advertising & Marketing instead of going for an engineering job . Later he worked as a copywriter at an ad agency and simultaneously started doing theatre for the next few years. Apart from acting, he plays the guitar well and also composes poems and songs. As an actor, he considers Johnny Depp, Sanjeev Kumar and Irrfan Khan as his inspirations. He started his career in acting by playing a small role of Laxman in ram-leela in the movie Delhi 6 (directed by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra) and as a drug seller in the offbeat movie Barah Aana, starring Naseeruddin Shah.


In 2009, noted[by whom?] director Sangeeth Sivan was looking for a new actor for his experimental film 332 Mumbai to India, Amit Riyaan had auditioned for a small character role for that film but when he was given a chance to audition for the main lead role the next week, he proved his worth[peacock term]. He was tested eight times in a span of one month for that role as it was an intense role of a Bihari man contrary to Amitriyaan, who belongs to remote Maharashtra.[1] Later, his performance in the Marathi film Manyaa the Wonder Boy earned him an award at the Dadasaheb Phalke Marathi Film Festival for the Best Male Debut.[2] His other film (made by Ram Gopal Varma), Satya 2, was released in November 2013 and his natural acting was appreciated by the audience[3] as well as the critics.[4] Amit Riyaan has also worked in the South Indian film industry with movies like Naanthanda (directed by Ram Gopal Varma).[5]

Amitriyaan's fourth film in a major role and his second film in the Marathi language was the cult classic Rajwade and Sons ( produced by Atul Kulkarni ). In this movie, he played the pivotal character of Vikram Rajwade which turned out to be a major hit.[6] His other film was a light-hearted comedy with a social message, named Boyz 2.  This time he played the central role of a strict no-nonsense school teacher who has his principles which he imposes on everyone around. The film was a big hit all over and his work was again admired by critics for his mature performance. His next film Aasud, based on farmers' issues, was critically applauded[7] and he was nominated as the best actor at multiple award events. This film is soon going to be released in Telugu as well as Tamil.

Recently, AR Rahman and Zee5 teamed up for his Hindi film Atkan Chatkan in which he played the main role of a street musician.[8] He lost eight kilos of weight[citation needed] to fit into the role and especially learned to play pakhawaj[citation needed] for his character. Apart from films, he has also worked in two Hindi web series for Voot. One is Peshawar, where he played a parallel antagonist who is a psycho terrorist from Pakistan.[9] The second one is Tandoor[10] based on the infamous real-life murder mystery of the 90s,[11] directed by Nivedita Basu.[12]
