Rakesh, one of the most upcoming promising Australian Indian actors, has taken the next big leap of making his mark in the entertainment capital of the world, Hollywood, Los Angeles. Rakesh has worked in critically acclaimed Australian feature films and enjoys a nationwide recognition as one of the finest actors in this country.
Rakesh left his homeland in his early 20s. He was confident enough to pick up his entire life (which honestly wasn’t very much at the time) to make a name for himself. Those were tough years for him when he thought he knew everything and didn’t know enough to be afraid or insecure about anything.
He knew a grand total of zero people in Sydney. He had no talent representation when he moved to Australia. His rounds of the entertainment field were not very encouraging. Everyone in the business told him to forget his dreams. He stuck on in Sydney despite the loneliness, his binge eating and failed attempts to make conversation with bartenders.
As Rakesh endured, his passion for acting caught people’s attention everywhere in the country. ‘I guess it is magic,” Rakesh said. All of a sudden he got cast for leading roles in national commercials for television.
Life started making sense for Rakesh (who once could not even speak the English language with his thick accent), and he took one step forward towards working in critically acclaimed Australian feature films which gave him a nationwide recognition as one of the finest actors in this country. His IMDB ranking started shooting up drastically.
