MUMBAI : Aashiqui marked the debut of the leading pair, Rahul Roy and Anu Aggrawal which made them superstars. The film was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and was also the debut of Deepak Tijori. The actor has played many supporting roles in the industry and is now working as a director in Hindi Films.

Before starting his journey in the film industry he worked as a front office manager in Hotel Searock in Mumbai. When he decided to become an actor his struggle started as he sat outside offices of production companies for three years and gave multiple auditions. He even came close as a lead for Maine Pyar Kiya, which was the breakthrough of Salman Khan.

In an interview Deepak said, "Salman Khan and I both auditioned for Maine Pyar Kiya. Sooraj Barjatya later told me that after watching the rushes, the Barjatya family decided to go ahead with Salman Khan. Salman and I were the only two people who were competing for the role of Prem, neck-to-neck. They had even told me that if they selected me, they’d like to change my name on the screen and discussed how they’d like to launch me."

Deepak’s two most supporting roles are one in 1992 for Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, in which he played Aamir Khan's rival in the inter-school cycling championship, and then in 1994 for the film Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, in which he was Shah Rukh Khan's rival and gets married to the heroine Suchitra Krishnamurthy in the climax.
Deepak’s first film as lead hero in the thriller Pehla Nasha, flopped at the box office, and he never became a superstar himself. Later he became a director and made films such as Tom, Dick, and Harry, Oops!, and Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, which flopped at the box office. His recent release is Tipppsy, which hit the theatres on May 10.
