Arun was born in the religious land of India Meerut, Uttar Pradesh. After completing his schooling and getting admission in the Meerut University he started acting in dramas and plays later. This led to his exposure value to a great extent and he went to Mumbai to start a business when he was only 17. His father's dream for him to become a government employee like himself, shattered as he had plans that were bigger than this.

On the bigger perspective, his idea of starting a business venture in the city he turned his head towards acting where Ramanand Sagar, a renowned name in those days, gave him a break as the famous Vikram in Vikram and Betal, the old Quora of those times! Impressed by the jubilant work he was then offered the famous role Ram in Ramayan. The role embarked an identity which made him Ram in real life.
