Today BollyCurry along with all the fans, celebrates the birthday of well-known film and TV actor, Aditya Srivastava.

Born on 21st July 1968, Srivastava turns 46 today. While much is not known about his personal life, his career speaks for itself. After studying at Allahabad University, Srivastava moved to Delhi in 1989. He joined the Sri Ram Center of Performing Arts and began appearing in theatre plays. Shekhar Kapoor gave Srivastava his first break in Bollywood with the role of Puttilal in Bandit Queen (1994). After this role, he moved to Mumbai (1995) where he played many minor episodic roles including Byomkesh Bakshi as well as appearing in many promos and ads. He further acted in an episode of Rishtey called Highway directed by Imitiaz Ali, which was remade into the 2014 Bollywood movie Highway. Srivastava has starred in many movies such as Satya (1998), Dil Se (1998), Saathiya (2002), Ek Hasina Thi (2003), Black Friday (2004), Lakshya (2004), Deewaar (2004), Dil Se Pooch Kidhar Jaana Hai (2006), Gulaal (2009), and Kaalo (2010).

Dil Se Pooch Kidhar Jaana Hai (2006) was Srivastava's first lead role and although it failed to impress moviegoers, critics applauded him for his performance. His second lead role was in Kaalo (2010) which was appreciated by both viewers and critics alike, and he was applauded once again for his role of Sameer. The movie Gulaal of 2009, ran successfully across the International Film Festivals Circuit and it was one of the reasons he became known both at home and abroad.

Apart from venturing into movies Srivastava is well known for one other reason: his role of Senior Inspector Abhijeet in the popular Sony TV show C.I.D., which has been airing for the past 16 years. In 1999, he was offered the role for an initial contract for 26 episodes. However, his role and the show was loved so much that his long association began with the show. Over the years, his fans have only increased in number as the show gains new viewership everyday.

Today, on his birthday, we bring to you a small playlist of some songs that Srivastava has appeared in:
  1. "Meri Humnashi" - Dil Se Pooch Kidhar Jaana Hai
  2. "Bharam Bhaap" - Black Friday
  3. "Arambh Hai" - Gulaal
  4. "CID Anthem" - C.I.D. (TV series)
Here's wishing this much celebrated yet private man a very Happy Birthday. We at BollyCurry hope that he continues to wow the audience and critics with his stellar performances and may his fan following continue to increase!
