Early life

Anupriya Goenka was born in a Marwadi Family on 29 May 1987 in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh to Ravindra Kumar Goenka, a garment entrepreneur, and Pushpa Goenka, a homemaker.

Goenka provided financial support to her family before she completed school. She said, “I was the enterprising one and started helping my father in the garment export business. Acting was always a hobby till I realized I couldn’t do justice to both theatre and my corporate career,” she said.


Goenka moved to Mumbai in 2009. Goenka was intrigued with theater and tried to juggle between a career in acting and the corporate sector. She started doing commercials and first became known in 2013 as the face of the UPA government‘s Bharat Nirman ad campaign and for playing a lesbian character in India’s first-ever lesbian ad for the brand Myntra in 2015. Goenka has appeared in various television commercials for brands including Coke, Garnier, Stayfree, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Pepperfry, and Vodafone. She also worked as an Anchor / Show Host on a Home Shopping Channel called ShopCJ for more than one year. She portrayed the role of nurse Poorna in the 2017 action-thriller Tiger Zinda Hai. She garnered critical acclaim for the portrayal of the role of Queen Nagmati in the 2018 epic film Padmaavat opposite Shahid Kapoor.
