Shakespeare King is the only son of his parents Dr. Sailendra Narayan Tripathy, a professor in English and Ashoka Tripathy, a teacher in English literature. Born in Behrampur, Orissa on the 1st of December 1991, Shakespeare set out to find his career in the glamour Industry as a model and soon pursued acting. His older sister Leslie Tripathy is a Bollywood Actor.
Shakespeare personally feels that he knows that he belongs to the Camera and to the world not because of his talent or handsomeness, but because he has never belonged to anything or anyone else. His favourite quote is “I won’t be happy till I’m as famous as God.”
