Altough today he is the most famous and established actor in the industry ,Gulshan Grover's childhood was spent in extreme poverty. 

Talking about this during an interview, he said that,


I have seen many ups and downs in my life. My childhood went through very bad situations. I still remember that my school was in the afternoon but I used to wear my uniform and leave in the morning itself. Every morning I used to sell detergent powder for dishes and laundry in big closets away from my home.I used to earn money by selling all this. The people living in those cells used to buy things from me because they wanted me to study and do something big. I was never afraid of poverty because my father had always taught me to be honest. In those days we did not have money to eat and we had to starve for many days. Even after coming to Mumbai, the situation was like this for a long time but I did not lose courage.
