He used to get street dogs to his house and even used to spend the majority of his time at the barn.  Apart from acting, he has an interest in playing musical instruments, and he played the saxophone for around three years, but he left as it started affecting his voice.  He went to Austraila for his higher studies and got failed in the first year of his graduation. Later, he completed his bachelors and masters from Melbourne.  He was selected as the first-ever brand ambassador for Mumbai Fire Brigade in 2016.  Does Randeep Hooda drink alcohol?: Yes  His parents wanted him to become a doctor and forcefully sent him to DPS.  He became very mischievous and naughty and got indulged into every bad habit like smoking, drinking, dating, bunking classes, etc. He was addressed as 'Randeep Don Hooda' at his school farewell.  Since his school days, he was interested in acting and was also active in theatre.  After his debut, he started getting many offers, but he refused them all because of the promise Ram Gopal Verma made to him to launch him in his Bollywood flick 'Ek' in the lead role. To ensure this commitment, Ram used to pay Randeep 35,000/month for three years, but unfortunately, the film got shelved later.  In an interview, he told that he doesn't like women who drink or who have zero figure.  During his initial struggle days in Mumbai, he did various modelling assignments till he got the opportunity of his debut film- Monsoon Wedding.  He had a lonely childhood, as his parents used to work in the Middle East and left him with his maternal grandmother in a strict environment.  For his breathtaking role as Sarabjit Singh, an Indian who was detained in Pakistan for 23 years, in the biopic 'Sarabjit' in 2016, he went through a shocking transformation; as he lost around 18 kg in just 28 days.  After returning to India, he worked in the marketing sector in Delhi, but in a short span of time, he quit that job and moved to Mumbai.  He is a professional horse rider and participates in professional horse riding events like Polo and Showjumping regularly. He owns six horses in Mumbai's Mahalaxmi racecourse. Moreover, he has also won two medals at equestrian events in Mumbai and Delhi.  Randeep did various odd jobs like working in a Chinese restaurant as a waiter, car washing, dishwashing, taxi driver, becoming a beach lifeguard, and many such jobs.  He was a victim of constant bullying in his school hostel, but with his exposure to abroad, he developed a huge amount of confidence, which helped him grow as a person and as an actor.  If not an actor, he would have been a horse trainer.  He joined Naseeruddin Shah's theatre troupe named 'Motley' during his three years gap, and that was the time when his love for horses developed and he started horse-riding.
