Sohum Shah was born in a Sri Ganganagar (Rajasthan). He shifted to Mumbai to make films. He started his own production house, Recyclewala Films, to create content-driven film. His first film was the critically acclaimed Ship of Theseus, where he played the role of a socially incognizant stockbroker. He won a National Award for Best Producer for Ship of Theseus. Next, he was offered the role of a cop in Meghna Gulzar’s Talvar, based on the 2008 Noida double murder case. In 2017, Shah was cast alongside Kangana Ranaut in Hansal Mehta’s Simran. His most ambitious project till date, Tumbbad, released on 12 October 2018 and garnered rave reviews by the critics and audience alike.
He started his career with a screen appearance in 2010 and appeared in the movie named “Baabarr”. In the movie, he played a negative role for which he earned much recognition.
In 2012, he appeared in the movie named “Ship of Theseus” for which he won the National Award for his wonderful performance in the role he portrayed.
In 2015, Sohum Shah appeared in the movie named “Talvar” and he gave an amazing performance in the movie.
In 2017, he appeared in the movie named “Simran”. While he won another recognition for his first production “Tumbbad” which was released in 2018. Fortunately, the film got critical acclaimed and good reviews as well. However, he has worked on several projects and marked his identity in the Hindi cinema.
Having grown up in the small Rajasthani town of Sri Ganganagar, 400 km from Jaipur and with a population of 2.5 lakh, Shah, like most kids from the 90s, remembers repeatedly watching Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (KKHH). “The kind of positivity and energy that Shah Rukh brought to the screen, it could fill your life with a lot of happiness,” he says. “I remember a doctor friend, who felt that she was going crazy while studying medicine. She told me that KKHH helped her snap out of depression. He has contributed a lot to our culture. To me, he’s not just an actor, he is way above. I wanted to be exactly like him.”
It’s these starry dreams that vacuously occupied most of his teenage years. But hailing from a family, where money was hard to come by – his father was a commodity broker – he decided to assist him in his business, at the age of 14. “As much as I wanted to become an actor, I also wanted to contribute to the family, and improve our financial condition,” he says. Two years later, he took over the business. “I went on to dabble in different kinds of commodity trade, including edible oil. Bahut papad bele.”
Finally, Shah found success in real estate, and within eight years, he managed to establish himself as a businessman to reckon with, at least in Sri Ganganagar. “When I knew I could run my business on auto-pilot, I decided it was time to make the shift to Mumbai,” he says. This was in 2008. Shah hasn’t looked back.
