Avinash Tiwary, who will be seen portraying the character of Majnu in director Sajid Ali’s ‘Laila Majnu’, has a couple of films to his credit as an actor. He was last seen in the critically acclaimed film ‘Tu Hi Mera Sunday Hai’.

An interesting fact which a lot of people are not aware of is that Avinash had a pivotal role in the Amitabh Bachchan starrer television show ‘Yudh’. The actor had played the role of Ajatshatru aka Ajju, a seemingly even-tempered man who turns out to be the main villain in the story by the end. Despite being an extremely well-made show, ‘Yudh’ did not get its due from the audience and the finite show registered low ratings throughout its run. ‘Yudh’ is not the only TV show that he has done. Avinash also acted in an episode of ‘Rishta.Com’, a show that was produced by YRF TV, the television production arm of Yash Raj Films.

The actor has been a part of the modelling industry for more than a decade and has featured in a bunch of popular TVCs. With ‘Laila Majnu’ being on the verge of a release, he finally seems to be on the way to getting his due in the industry.
