Much like his character in the famous TV show, he is a pampered child in real life too. His parents are like his friends and belong to a jovial family. But unlike his onscreen character, he is closer to his father. His father took the strong step of shifting base to Mumbai so that Rohan could concentrate on his work and passion. He then started his career and got a chance to play the character of Naksh Singhaniya in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. But currently, his character is shown away from home as he has participated in BB10. The show stars Hina Khan, Vishal Singh and Shivangi Joshi in the lead roles. Apart from daily soaps, he has also acted in movies like Sixteen and Uvaa. In the movie Uvaa, he was seen playing a lover boy named Anil Sharma in the film. The film had a stellar star cast comprising of Sanjay Mishra, Om Puri, Rajit Kapoor, Jimmy Sheirgill, Sangram Singh among others. The movie was about four school friends who chance upon a rape victim and how they fight against the influential peple to provide justice to the girl. The movie failed to make an impact on the box office.
