He celebrates his birthday on January 18. In a recent interview, he expressed how close he is with his family and how they helped him decide an ideal profession. According to him, all his family members wanted different career options for him, and in the hope of fulfilling all their expectations, he decided to become an actor and play the various roles they wanted him to. Rishank is a very religious person, often expressing his faith in Lord Shiva through Facebook and Twitter. His debut movie, Love Ke Funday in 2016, saw him play the role of a guy who ends up having an extra-marital relationship for which he had to work hard to adapt. In his first film, he starred alongside two actresses
Ritika Gulati and Samiksha Bhatnagar.
In real life, he is a person full of humour. He does not smoke at all, which was exactly opposite to his character. He has always believed in learning from real life experiences, and that’s what makes his acting natural. We saw his involvement in a few Hindi and Kannada films. He doesn’t want to typecast in a particular role and is open to roles involving steamy scenes or breaking the taboo. He is ready to take on challenging roles which would establish him as a versatile actor. His journey has set an example for all the upcoming actors, how a small town guy can become a part of the Bollywood industry coming through the orthodox pathway of auditions.
