All That You Need To Know About Problem-child Armaan Kohli



Armaan Kohli

Star-son  Armaan Kohli who was arrested last week for drug  possession is  no stranger to brushes  with the  law. In 2018 he  was arrested  for  abusing a  fashion designer. Violent  behaviour under  the influence is the norm with Kohli.And to think he was at  one time  seen as the Next Best Thing.Here’s all  you need to know  about Armaan Kohli.

1.     Armaan Kohli is  the son actress Nishi who played the lead  in  over 70 Hindi and Punjabi films, and filmmaker  Rajkumar Kohli who made  hit films starring Reena  Roy  like Nagin and Jaani Dushman.He  made  his debut as a child artiste in his father Raj Kumar Kohli’s  film Badle  Ki Aag in  1982  . Loving father launched Armaan as a  leading man in  Vidrohi  which was  flop. Papa re-launched Armaan  in Dushman  Zamana. That too flopped.

2.     In 1992 director Raj  Kanwar offered Armaan the  male lead  in Deewaana  opposite the late  Divya Bharti.Armaan shot for  one schedule of  the  film and was then asked to quit  because of his volatile  film. An unknown wannabe  actor named Shah  Rukh Khan  was then signed for  the role Armaan  was to  play. The rest  was  history.

3.     In 1995 Aditya Chopra offered Armaan the role of Kajol’s Punjabi  fiancé in Dilwale  Dulhaniya  Le Jayenge. Armaan refused  explaining that he  did only lead roles. He forgot  to mention that the  only lead roles he was  being offered were in his  father’s film.Among them Aulad Ke Dushman where Shatrughan Sinha in the title role   played Armaan’s indulgent father pampering every whim of his  son, was  closest to Armaan’s own life.

4.     In 2002 Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahaani  Armaan was launched once again as a leading man. This time  he was given a  new name Munish Kohli which didn’t  help much. This  sequel of sorts to Raj Kumar Kohli’s 1979 hit  Jaani Dushman    was  a massive flop. In  2018 Armaan made  his  debut as a  villain  in  Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem   Ratan Dhan Payo on  Salman Khan’s recommendation.But he got no  further  offers, his reputation  preceding him.

5.     In 2013  Armaan was  a part of Bigg Boss where  he became  very close  to Kajol’s  sister Tanisha Mukherjee . He  was  accused of physical violence in Bigg Boss. When I  confronted  him with the charge he told me with a straight face,  “That’s not the way I’ve been brought up. To hurt a woman in any way is not acceptable to my family values.” I rest  my case.
