Early life and career

Tijori was born in a Sindhi family. His great grand father built the first modern safe in India, for which he became known & famous and his name became synonymous with it. He received his college education from Narsee Monjee College in his hometown Mumbai. While in college, Tijori joined an amateur theatre group whose members included Aamir Khan, Ashutosh Gowariker, Paresh Rawal and Vipul Shah. His friends influenced him to pursue a career in film acting, in which during his early career he struggled. He said in an interview with Rediff.com "For three years, I sat outside offices trying to get a word with producers [...] I managed to do some tiny roles, which were very pathetic." [2] He had worked for Cine Blitz magazine and also as a hotel manager. [2]

Acting career

Tijori's first important role came when Mahesh Bhatt cast him to play the role of protagonist's friend in his romantic drama Aashiqui (1990). [3] The film was a commercial success and his hand gestures in the film were widely copied by the youth of that time. [3] [4] He played minor roles in Afsana Pyar Ka (1991) and Kaun Kare Kurbanie (1991). [2] In the same year, he was cast again by Bhatt to play supporting roles in two of his films; romantic drama Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin and romantic thriller Sadak . The latter film was loosely based on Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976) and Tijori played a man who is killed by a pimp after he runs away with one of the prostitutes. [5] In 1992, he featured in Abbas-Mustan's suspense thriller Khiladi alongside Akshay Kumar, Ayesha Jhulka and Sabeeha. Tijori played Boney and was paired with Sabeeha. [6] Khiladi was a commercial success. Tijori's next important role came with the Mansoor Khan-directed coming-of-age sports drama Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar [7] [8] alongside Aamir Khan, in which Tijori played the role of Shekhar Malhotra, a successful and arrogant cyclist, who wins the Inter-School Championship every year. Akshay Kumar had auditioned [9] and Milind Soman was signed for Malhotra's role [10] before Tijori played it. Rediff.com ranked Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, ninth in its Bollywood's top 10 college movies list. [11]

"It boils down to destiny. The box-office rules your career. After [the failure of Santaan ], people put me down. That is how things always work in the industry. So I decided that unless I got a great role, I would not do the film. That is why I did Ghulam , Angaarey and Vaastav , which had tiny but good roles for me. I started doing characters which were important to the film."

Tijori in an interview with Rediff.com, 2002 [2]

Tijori produced and played his only lead role in Gowariker-directed murder mystery Pehla Nasha (1993), alongside Pooja Bhatt and Raveena Tandon. [2] [12] Upon release, the film received poor reviews and failed at the box office. [13] In the same year, he appeared as the antagonist in D Rama Naidu-directed Santaan . [2] Tijori starred alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa [14] and Anjaam (both 1994). The latter one is considered one of the most violent films in Bollywood. [15] In 1995, he starred in another Mahesh Bhatt-directed film Naajayaz . [16] Tijori played a supporting role in action drama Mrityudata (1997) which did not receive favourable reviews from critics. [17] He portrayed supporting characters in Aamir Khan-starrer Ghulam (1998) [18] and the Abbas-Mustan-directed comedy thriller Baadshah . In the latter, he featured as the titular undercover CBI agent. [19]

In the same year, Tijori acted in Mahesh Manjrekar-directed crime drama Vaastav: The Reality (1999) and the Gujarati language film Hu Tu Ne Ramtudi. He played supporting roles in the romantic comedy Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge (2000), Vaastav: The Reality's sequel Hathyar (2002) [20] and Kabir Sadanand-directed comedy Popcorn Khao! Mast Ho Jao (2004). [21] In 2012, he played a police officer in Ram Gopal Varma's action film Department . [22] Tijori had approached Varma for the villain's role but he felt that Tijori's image did not match the character's and refused to give him the role. Tijori changed his look in one month's time and was eventually cast by Varma. [23] The following year, he was cast to play the antagonist in Devang Dholakia-directed Tina and Lolo. He had to lose weight for his role. Tijori stated that he himself "was looking for a change" while referring to his salt-and-pepper look in the film. Dholakia said that he was "looking for a new suave villain" and Tijori suited the role. [24] [25] [26] He featured in the crime thriller Raja Natwarlal (2014) and played the role of a terrorist in the Sadanand-directed comedy Gollu Aur Pappu (2014).

[30] [31] The film was released in two versions – Hindi and English. [32] India Today called Tijori's direction amateurish and termed the film "an example of brave new breed".

[52] In 2013, he directed the film Rock'In Love which featured Hanif Hilal and Sandeepa Dhar in lead role. [53] [54] Do Lafzon Ki Kahani starring Randeep Hooda was Tijori's last directorial project. [55]

Ankola had signed an agreement with Balaji Telefilms, which refrained him from participating or acting in television shows made by other production houses that "directly or indirectly compete with Balaji Telefilms." On the seventh day, the Bombay High Court ordered Ankola to leave the house or face criminal charges. [56] He was replaced by Tijori. During Tijori's stay at the Bigg Boss house, his wife Shivani Tijori sent text messages to her friends, family members and media-persons to help Tijori in getting out of the house. [57] [58] After he was evicted from the show, Tijori said that he would make a film based on the show. [59] Tijori called the show "a laundered reality" [60] but denied that it was scripted. [61]

Television career

Tijori's production house Tijori Films produced television serials. One of his most popular serials was Rishtey, a turning point in actor Murali Sharma's career.

Goregaon's Garden Estate Co-operative Housing Society asked Tijori and his family to vacate their house in November 2012, following complaints from their neighbours. [68] The Tijori family had been living there since 2009. The residents of the building accused them of behaving rudely, not paying charges on time, insulting the society's office bearers and bringing disrepute to them. After a general meeting of the members, the society passed a resolution and sent a notice to Tijori, asking him to vacate his flats within the next 30 days. The resolution was sent to the local registrar. [69] He responded by filing a criminal case against nine members of the society [70] and in October 2014, the registrar gave the decision in his favour. Tijori called the legal proceedings a "long nightmarish battle" and accused the society for charging wrongful maintenance money. [71]
