    I had thought of joining my dad in his stock broking business in Delhi. But then life brought a twist when I moved to Mumbai. I took up some modelling assignments to pay my rent, followed by certain TVCs.

And today it’s like — acting is what I know and want to do.”

  • In 2018, Gautam Rode, along with two others, reportedly fell victim to a scam involving a real estate project in the Goregaon West area. The project was supposed to be a 55-storey building, with Rode’s flat designated on the 14th floor. However, the development work stopped in 2016, and no progress has been made since then. Rode filed a complaint with the Mumbai police and lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against Atithi Patel, the property developer involved in the project at that time. According to Rode’s complaint, he was promised that the building would be completed by December 2018. To secure the flat, Rode made an initial payment of Rs 1.5 lakh and subsequently paid monthly instalments of Rs 5 lakh between May 2016 and May 2017, totalling Rs 2.11 crore. However, when Rode requested the allotment letters and registration of the flat, Patel failed to provide them. It was then that Rode discovered that no progress had been made beyond the 14th floor. He asked for a refund, but Patel refused to return the money. Patel’s representative mentioned that builders typically do not refund money after cancellation, but they advised Rode to wait. The representative did not provide any information about the construction site in Goregaon. Additionally, the representative claimed in an email that Rode was causing delays in registering the flat.
