Rohit Mavle – An Engineer by Qualification, an Actor by Choice and a Content Creator by Destiny3 min read
Mumbai, November 6: Sometimes life takes you through a roller coaster ride with respect to your professional choices, and you still manage to stay strong throughout that journey. The same has happened with Rohit Mavle, a.k.a foodie_actor_engineer, as he is widely known across Social Media Platforms like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Trell, Josh, etc. After completing his B.E. Computer Science he got into his passion of acting, but life took a complete U-turn, and he was brought towards his first love, i.e. Food. He started doing Restaurant Reviews with fellow Bloggers, a lot of Blogger Tables across Mumbai, Thane & Navi Mumbai and today, he is one of the most known Food Content Creators across India.
Since childhood, Rohit was always a die-hard foodie who loved to try various cuisines whenever he visited Restaurants with his family or get-together functions like Weddings. He would eat anything, and everything is given to him for tasting by relatives or family. When he started growing up, even during his school days, he started visiting different Street Food Stalls on the way to his school or tuition classes all by himself. He got into this habit of exploring street food stalls and trying the dishes that they serve. He developed his love for street food dishes like Dabeli, Samosa, Vada, Medu Vada, etc., and that’s when his passion for Food Photography and Videography began. He used to click pictures of every food dish that he used to eat and keep them as memories, and for 5-6 odd years, he clicked thousands of Food Pictures and Videos but didn’t do anything productive out of it. Many of his friends would always call him for suggestions of good food places across Mumbai, and he would like to suggest to them the best choices. A few of his friends had saved his Contact Name as “Zomato” in their Phones.
One day his friend gave him this idea about starting an Instagram Page to showcase his Food content to people, and that’s when his journey of “foodie_actor_engineer” began. Rohit started with sheer love for Food and nothing else. In no time, he was doing a lot of Restaurant and Product Reviews on his Page, which got an excellent response. Rohit started getting restaurant invitations via DMs and Emails and got an opportunity to visit some dream Restaurants of his, many from his Bucketlist like Ummrao (Courtyard by Marriott), Bayview & Oriental Blossom (Hotel Marine Plaza), Asian Kitchen (Four Points by Sheraton), Brasserie (Hilton), Lake View Cafe & Nawab Saheb (Renaissance), etc. He also started getting invites from Resorts and Hotels like The Fern, Holiday Inn, Le Meridien, etc., for Staycations for Property Reviews, which took him closer to his other Passion, Travelling. He started travelling to different places across Maharashtra to create Travel Content for his audience, and a Part-time hobby got converted to an almost Full-time Profession.
This beautiful journey has taken him to more than 260K followers on Instagram, more than 18K Subscribers on YouTube, more than 3 Million followers on Trell and more than 500K followers on Josh. Rohit Mavle has received over 400 Restaurants across Maharashtra and has done over 50 Staycations all over India. This gentleman aspires to create awesome content for his followers shortly with his love for Food and Traveling.
