Dill Mill Gayye is a show aimed at the urban educated youth. Set in the backdrop of a hospital it deals with the pressures, the drama, the romance, the inter personal relationships and humour in the lives of young doctors. Keeping the environment of a hospital in mind, the characters of the show are real, their issues are believable and the approach is dramatic, but never unreal, albeit emotional and fun filled.
An NRI from New York, Amit Tandon has certainly travelled a long way to becoming a popular figure in India. Surprisingly, this talented guy never enrolled in any formal training for singing or acting. In fact, his family was very much against him joining the entertainment industry. They wanted him to become a lawyer.
He completed his honors in Business Administration and political science. His love and passion for music was too much to resist and so, in 2004, he finally came to the land of dreams, Mumbai.
His knowledge of music and his American accent were the ideal credentials for a VJ and he was chosen as one for Channel V. While veejaying gave him the necessary exposure, it wasn’t enough to satiate his singing appetite. He took part in the inaugural edition of Indian Idol. Though, he didn’t win he drew praises from all, and in particularly Anu Malik, for his overall persona.
Post Indian Idol, he quit veejaying and became an actor. He made his acting debut with Kaisa Yeh Pyar Hai. Thereafter, he played Manthan in the popular soap Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
Acting consumed most of his time which didn’t give him enough time for music. So, he quit Kyunki.. to work on his debut music album. Titled Tanha, Amit’s album is likely to release in mid 2008. After finishing work on his album, the 29 year-old has got back to acting again with Zee TV’s Saath Saath.
He got married his NRI girlfriend in December last year.
