Abhishek Awasthi has been in news more for his affair with Rakhi Sawant than for his acting. Every now and then the duo created headlines and the most noted was the one when she was slapped by Rakhi Sawant on Valentine's Day. The couple broke up after that and Abhishek moved on with his not so noted career in the entertainment industry.
He was first seen, when he paired Rakhi Sawant in the dance based reality show Nach Baliye in 2007. The couple was declared first runners up of the show and accumulated a considerable amount of fan following for their performances on the show. He was then seen in the television series titled Jugni Chali Jalandhar in 2008. He was last seen in the television series Tu Mere Agal Bagal Hai in 2014. The series started in 2014 but concluded after three months of its inception due to poor TRPs. Since then, he has been seen spotted in some parties.
