Ashutosh Rana

Master Story Teller, Optimal Thinker and Thought Leader

“Ashutosh Rana” needs no introduction as he is one of the few actors who wowed the nation with his spine chilling acts in his very initial releases - the Bollywood blockbusters Dushman and Sangharsh; and has since gone on to establish his credentials as a Power Performer – a tag – that a lot of actors aspire for but very few are able to achieve. His desire to become an Indian actor – and not just limit himself to being a Bollywood actor – has led him to star in movies across 7 Indian languages - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Bengali, Marathi and Haryanvi. For the uninitiated; movies in India are currently made in only 11 languages.

He is a man who doesn’t hesitate to dream and had the daredevilry to work towards realizing his passions; without feeling remorseful about it. After all, how many budding lawyers would even dream of giving up a successful career in LAW to chase their passion? Ashutosh did exactly that!! It is this self-belief that saw him overcome the lack of opportunities characteristic of any Indian village and has helped him make it big!! Besides being an avid reader, Ashutosh is a wonderful poet too.

Ashutosh has transcended from being just an accomplished actor, carrying a brilliant aura and a mesmerizing personality - into an accomplished orator and a leadership speaker. What makes his approach unique is the ability to marry concepts from epics and mythology and relate them to “everyday” aspects of both – the corporate and personal life.

A motivational speaker – par excellence – Ashutosh excels at “Awakening the Uncommon” by channelizing human energies to realize hitherto unachievable goals. Ashutosh partners very closely with organizations and individuals as a Growth Accelerator, leading them to attain their “True North”.
