Happy Birthday, Rashmi Desai: How She Became The Highest-paid TV Actress

She debuted in television in 2006 with the TV Show Ravan.

She rose to prominence after joining Colors TV’s long-standing soap opera Uttaran in 2009.

Popular television actress Rashmi Desai celebrates her 38th birthday today. From being one of the highest-paid TV actresses to continually setting new goals, she has come a long way since starting her acting career in 2002 with the Assamese film Kanyadaan. Her Bollywood debut came in 2004 with Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke, directed by Birendra Nath Tiwari.

Desai rose to prominence after joining Colors TV’s long-standing soap opera Uttaran in 2009, where she played a parallel lead role alongside Tina Datta and Nandish Sandhu. The show’s immense success made Rashami a household name across India.

Beginning her television journey in 2006 with the show Ravan on Zee TV, Desai gained significant recognition with her breakthrough role in the daily soap Pari Hoon Main on Star One in 2008. In the series, she portrayed the characters of Nikki Shrivastav and Pari Rai Choudhary.

In an interview with Pinkvilla, she opened up about facing the casting couch when she started her career at the age of 16. Rashami shared, “I still remember being told that if I didn’t agree to casting couch, I wouldn’t get work. There was this person named Suraj, but I don’t know where he is now. When we first met, he asked about my statistics and at that time, I didn’t understand what it meant. I told him I didn’t know and he realised I was completely unaware. He was the first person who tried to take advantage of me and attempted to molest me in some way.”

Rashami Desai gained recognition with several shows like Dil Se Dil Tak, Pari Hoon Main and Ishq Ka Rang Safed. Besides TV, Rashami appeared in films like Gabbar Singh, Bandhan Toote Na and Dabangg 2 in cameo roles.

She has also ventured into reality TV with appearances on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 6 and Nach Baliye 7, along with her memorable stint on Bigg Boss 13. She is all geared up to act in a few upcoming films including Mission Laila, Hisaab Barabar, Chambe Di Booti and Mom Tane Nai Samjay.

Rashmi is currently one of the highest-paid actresses on television. The actress currently owns five flats and several expensive cars, including a Mercedes valued between Rs 60 lakh to Rs 3 crore. Media reports estimate her total assets at around Rs 10.12 crore.

The actress previously tied the knot to her Uttaran co-star, Nandish Sandhu in 2011, but they divorced in 2016.
