At the age of 19, when the young Taaruk Raina packed his bag and came to Mumbai, all that he knew was, he has nothing to lose because he didn't achieve anything. Trying his hand at multiple things that allowed him to explore his creativity, finally, with Mismatched, he feels a tad bit of satisfaction and looking forward to being busy for the coming days.

In the second season of the web series Mismatched, Taaruk's character Anmol Malhotra has got a great arch that got him the opportunity to flaunt his acting skill all the more than that of the first season of the show.

While playing a differently-abled character made him strong not only as a performer but also as an individual, in conversation with OTTplay, the actor opened up on the advantage of starting young.

Taaruk told OTTplay, " With the kind of appreciation I am getting for Mismatched, I am thankful and overwhelmed at the same time. This is what I was waiting for and now all that I want is to stay busy forever, I want to do so much work. I want to put out more songs that I am writing and composing, I want to act more and yes, this is that time when I feel like I am on the right track."

He went on to add, " When I started at the age of 19, I was like a lost child who did not know anything, as in what to do with life or what is that plan A. I wanted to act, I wanted to make music and in my head, I was like, sab kuch karunga. All that I knew at that time is, I have nothing to lose so I can take risks now. I believe that when you are young, you have the luxury of taking risks."

So Taaruk took risks and tried his hands at multiple things including voice acting, show hosting, making videos, English language theatre, and stage performance and continued to learn and audition until his first break.

Taaruk earlier has appeared in web series Pawan and Pooja, Jugaadistan, Broken News and the Rishi Kapoor starrer film Sharmaji Namkeen apart from Mismatched.

The series Mismatched directed by Akarsh Khurana and Nipun Dharmadhikari; also features Prajukta Kohli, Rohit Saraf, Rannvijay Singha and Vidya Malvade in pivotal roles, streaming on Netflix.
