Tiku Talsania’s life beyond the arc lamps: cycling, adventure sports and more

At the age of 67, Tiku Talsania is making the most of his life. The actor, who has been entertaining audiences for decades, loves cycling and adventure.

A peek into the Waqt Humara Hai actor’s Instagram profile is sure to put millennials to shame. His last message shows him on his “old Thunderbird”. In a photo shared in December, Tiku poses for a photo during a breakfast drive to Ahura. The photo shows it in a stylish jacket, and the bike is certainly a beauty.

Not just cycling, Tiku Talsania is up for any kind of adventure. An old video shows the actor attempting the longest and highest zipline in the world. He has also tried paragliding at India’s highest paragliding spot – Bir Billing. While sharing the post, he wrote, “forever young” and “one of my bucket list.”

Tiku Talsania was last seen in SAB TV’s sitcom Sajan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo. His last big screen appearance was the 2017 release of Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi.

On the family front, his daughter Shikha Talsania has appeared in several films, the latest being Coolie No.1.

In an interview, Shikha named her father Tiku Talsania as a star. “He’s had his journey and I’m very proud of him.” When asked if he helped her realize her Bollywood dream, the actor said: “We were very clear from the start that you have to create your own way. My upbringing was very regular. I would never hide or tell people ( about my father). Who’s going to say all that? I’ve always been like that.”

“After giving my last paper in my third year, I went back home and said I think I want to act, but I’m not so sure. They (my parents) had a very real conversation, something I needed at the time. They said you’ve seen it’s not the most stable thing ever, and as much as you want to dive into it, why not explore other options as well. And if it comes your way and you still want to work on it, work on it. And I’ve been exploring my options,” she told indianexpress.com in an earlier interview.
