Facts/Trivia

  • Harshvardhan Rane was born in 1983 to a father from Maharashtra, and to a mother who was Telugu.
  • Rane ran away from his home when he was 15 years old with Rs.200 in his pocket. In an interview, speaking about this, he said,

    The fact that people told me that I wouldn’t be able to make it. Even as a kid, I would go out of my way to prove that things could be done if one tried enough. When it came to acting, many told me, ‘Yeh kya hain? Yeh toh koi profession bhi nahin hain.’ I was asked questions like, ‘Who do you know in Bombay? How will you survive?’ I just wanted to get out of Gwalior. I ran away not just from my home but also from a society that kept telling me what is possible and what is not. That’s what I am still running away from… people who have no vision, no faith, no belief.”

  • After leaving studies, Rane started training at Barry John Acting Studio, and he performed at various theatres. He worked in the Indian adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ works.
  • Later, he went to Mumbai to become an actor. He started his career with television in 2007.
  • When he started working in films, he was offered negative roles, which he did not do and because of that, he had to suffer for three years.
  • He used to work as a carpenter during his struggling days to earn money. In an interview, he talked about working as a carpenter and said,

    I started buying old furniture from Nampally Station (in Hyderabad) and retextured it…. Ameer logon ko distressed look bahut pasand hain (laughs), toh main woh karke unko bech deta tha. Usse mere khaane-peene ka ho jaata tha. That taught me a lot and even today my WhatsApp status says ‘Carpenter.”

  • In an interview, Rane revealed that in 2004, when he worked as a delivery boy, he delivered a helmet to actor John Abraham.
  • Before Rane became an actor, he did many small jobs from 2002-2004. He joined a call centre as he wanted to learn the English language. In an interview, he talked about his small jobs and said,

    Between 2002 to 2004, I also worked as a waiter, courier boy, at an STD booth, cyber cafe, and even assisted a DJ when I didn’t have money. That time people would say it’s important to learn English. It then became my goal to learn the language. I looked around for coaching classes, but I didn’t have money to pay for them. So, I joined a call centre. At call centres, they used to give training in soft skills and English.”

  • In 2020, Rane was admitted to the hospital after he became Covid positive. In 2021, he donated his bike to help the Covid positive patients.

  • Rane runs a Shirt-off foundation that organizes a sale of garage products. The fund raised by the foundation is used to educate a girl who lost her parents due to HIV. The name of the girl is Swati, and she was adopted by Rane when she was four years old.  In an interview, he talked about the fund and said,

    It’s called so because I was giving my shirts away and turning them into notebooks, in a way. I was thinking of a way to secure a girl child’s education. People used to call me for donations and I couldn’t relate to that because I have spent most of my life trying to support myself. Earlier I thought that I’d make furniture and give it to orphanages, but that wasn’t a practical thought. Then I thought I would give away clothes, but that wouldn’t help much either. That’s when I thought of a garage sale, the proceeds of which, go towards Swati’s education.”

    What went wrong is my DNA. It is clear that I was single for the last 12 years. There has to be a reason for sure because nothing happens without any reason. I started dating her and she is the most fun person on this planet earth.”
