About Raj Babbar

Babbar was born in Tundla, Uttar Pradesh on 23 June 1952. He is an alumnus of the 1975 batch of National School of Drama and graduated from Agra College.

He trained in the Method school of acting at NSD, which is involved in Street Theatre. After his training in New Delhi he moved to Mumbai to try his luck. He started his film career opposite Reena Roy, one of the well known actresses of that time.

He also featured in the debut film of the then 13 year old Padmini Kolhapure. He became a consistent feature of the B.R. Chopra Banner; Nikaah with Deepak Parashar and Salma Agha, Aaj Ki Aawaz with Smita Patil with whom he had an affair and subsequently married, despite being married with two children at the time.

He also achieved success in Punjabi cinema as he gave remarkable performances in Chan Pardesi (1980) and Long Da Lishkara (1986) - two arthouse movies with serious themes treated in a realistic manner - a far cry from the melodramatic & almost hysterical tenor of most Punjabi films of the time.

He also appeared in many episodes of the famous Indian T.V. series, Mahabharat, as king Bharat.

He also starred in the hit Punjabi films Aasra Pyar Da (1983), Marhi Da Diva (1989), Mahaul Theek Hai (1999), Shaheed Uddham Singh (2000), Yaaran Naal Baharan (2005), and Ek Jind Ek Jaan (2006). It has been said that Babbar often does Punjabi films for free, as an act of generosity to Punjabi cinema.

Raj Babbar married Nadira Zaheer, daughter of noted theatre personality Sajjad Zaheer. Arya Babbar and Juhi Babbar are his children from Nadira.

He then married actress Smita Patil who gave birth to their son Prateik Babbar. Smita died of post-partum complications two weeks later. Raj subsequently patched up with his first wife. Prateek lives with his maternal grandparents.
