Himanshu Soni


My journey began in 2011 when I decided to step out of my hometown and move to Mumbai a city full of dreams. I was 23 then with full passion and energy to pursue career in the entertainment industry and it was not easy path for me. Even though I had to face a lot of struggles I kept my head up in the game and decided not to give up. I first appeared on TV series:“ Yeh Zindagi Hai Gulshan and Parvarish” but it wasn’t noticed much. Until one such day in 2013, I was called for an audition for main lead actor to play “Buddha” in Buddha Series. And I got selected from among 300 other auditions.
It was the January 2013 and my journey towards something very important had begun. I spent 6 -8 months on researching and reading maximum books on Life of Lord Buddha and his teachings. I enrolled myself for 10-days meditation course “Vipassana” at Pagoda in Mumbai. I learnt unique form of Martial Arts & Tai chi which helped me to get the correct physique for this role. I also learnt to use swords, sticks and various forms of arts thru them. I remember early morning training with the Horses at the Juhu beach. This has helped me personally a lot. I want people to remember me as the onscreen “Buddha”. My journey had just begun.


I was born on 1 February 1988 in Jaipur, Rajashthan, India. I was raised in Jaipur with my family and two younger sisters and I completed schooling in Tagore International School Mansarover, and then graduated with a Master’s Degree in commerce at the University of Rajasthan Commerce College. Like most of us, I too had dreamt big and decided to work hard to achieve it with determination and dedication.


Buddha series was one of the most popular shows of the country in 2013 with the view of 500 million people watching it worldwide. It was shown Thailand, Korea, Srilanka, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Europe, UK and USA too. And being repeatedly telecasted more than 3-4 times in countries. Also now is successfully airing on Netflix across continents. He is not only recognised as onscreen “Prince Charming” but as offscreen “Prince Charming” by all his fans who love him a lot.
