Vatsal Sheth is an Indian actor, model, and entrepreneur. He was born on 5 August 1980 in Mumbai. Sheth portrays Jai throughout his adolescent years. In 2003, the leading pair Abbas-Mustan released Taarzan: The Wonder Car, in which Sheth portrays Raj Choudary. Sheth first appeared in Nanhe Jaisalmer in 2007.

He has undergone a significant transformation. The actor has grown a beard that looks brawny, and he wants filmmakers and casting directors to view him for more than his boy-next-door persona.

“As an actor, I want to be versatile and I want to show that if anyone is looking at casting, then they should think of me. Usually, when people talk of me, it’s normally that, ‘Oh, he looks like a chocolate boy and is the boy-next-door’. I wanted to break that image a little bit,” He said.

“I was talking to a director recently with whom I connected after a long time, and we were discussing a film. When I shared my recent pictures, he was taken aback and said he’ll discuss things with me. So, that’s the difference. People really don’t think or imagine for you. You’ve to make sure they see you that away.”
