Shiv Thakare Early Life and Education

Shiv’s childhood was spent in poverty. At that time his father used to run a paan shop. A paan shop did not cover the household expenses. That’s why Shiv and his sister used to do things like throwing paper and selling milk.

Shiv was definitely poor but he was very strong at heart. No matter what he had to do, he continued his studies. However, he completed his schooling from a government school in Amravati.

He remained a brilliant student even after being in a government school. That’s why he started doing engineering after school.

Shiv said about his engineering that he did engineering because if there is no work, then he will find his work by doing some job through engineering.

The question must have come to your mind: who paid the engineering fees of a poor family boy. Actually, when Shiv was only 9 years old, Jackie Shroff once came to his area.

Seeing Jackie Shroff there, Shiv decided that he too had to become an actor. That is why he also started learning dance.

By the time Shiv completed schooling, he had become a good dancer. He also opened his own small dance training center. The income from here was of great use to Shiv.

He did engineering from that and also worked on his body. Along with engineering, Shiv started trying to enter the industry. He started auditioning for it. He gave many auditions but was not selected anywhere.

Shiv also auditioned for the Indian reality show Roadies for many years in a row, but he used to get rejected many times.

But when Shiv auditioned for Roadies in the year 2017, when he reached in front of the judges in the final audition, he impressed everyone a lot.

His way of speaking, the honesty in his words, and his struggle made a deep place in the hearts of the judges. All the judges wanted Shiv to go to their team. But Shiv chose Rannvijay’s team.

After this, Rannvijay became very emotional and tears came to his eyes. Shiv was well-liked in that season of Roadies Season 2. But he could not win this show.

After this, he started getting small jobs but he was not getting any special recognition from him.

In those days, Shiv also tried a lot to go to Bigg Boss’s house but he was not getting any chance to go there. Then after a lot of trying, he was selected for the Marathi Bigg Boss Season 2 but not for the Hindi Bigg Boss Season.

As the Marathi Bigg Boss progressed, so did people like Shiv’s game. He became the favorite of the audience. Shiv was the winner of Marathi Bigg Boss Season 2.

From here Shiv became so famous that the attention of the Big Boss Hindi team went to him. He got selected for Bigg Boss Season 16. As soon as Bigg Boss 16 started, Shiv appeared as a strong contestant. Here too his game attracted many people toward him.
