Wiki Trivia on Pranay Chulet – Age, Wife, Family, & More

Born in 1973, Pranay (age – 48) did his schooling from a small town of Rajasthan called Dariba. His father was employed with a lead and zinc mining industry there. Since very young age, Chulet has been overcoming the odds in his life. An IITian in Chemical Engineering, he did not have a science teacher in class 10 in his school. The town also lacked coaching centers. But the resolute Pranay studied all by himself by burning the candle at both ends.

Pranay is married to Tina Goyal Chulet. The couple has one daughter.  Pranay’s wife Tina is an entrepreneur too as she independently runs her own mobile-based dating company Waltzz.

On another note, Pranay Chulet got the idea of starting Quikr from his film making experience in New York. As he is a movie fan, he went to the New York Film Academy to learn the art of film making and ended up creating a feature film that could be turned into a game.  For his film, he used Craigslist, right from for auditioning actors to recruiting his cast and crew, and finding software programmers to renting an apartment there. When he was doing the final editing of his film in India, he realized that nobody was doing things like Craigslist back in his country. And that’s when the seeds for his new venture Quikr were sown.
