Television Career
After making his debut in Neena Gupta's romantic drama serial Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr in 2002, opposite Riva Bubber, Amit went on to appear in a Hindi TV show Guns and Roses, co-starring his ex-flame Neeru Bajwa. He then participated in the first seasons of reality shows like Nach Baliye, Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi, and Bigg Boss.

Movie Career
Amit's debut movie Phoonk 2 was a disaster at the box office and failed to garner much appreciation. His second film Maximum co-starring Naseeruddin Shah and Sonu Sood met with the same fate as Phoonk 2. Amit redeemed himself with his next film, Kai Po Che, which released in 2013. Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, Kai Po Che was based on Chetan Bhagat's novel 3 Mistakes of My Life and starred Amit Sadh, Sushant Singh Rajput and Rajkummar Rao in the lead. Kai Po Che tells the story of how three friends struggle to open a cricket shop in the backdrop of continuous communal tension in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. This story of friendship and human triumph was an instant hit with the audience and critics alike. Amit essayed the role of Omkar Shastri and his performance was very well received by everyone.
