“I belong to a family of Doctors, so my journey to become an actor was not an easy one. Being from a family where everyone shares the same profession, I was automatically considered to be the next Doctor in the Family.
This is the reason I could never tell me parents I wanted to become an actor. And the other reason was that it was honestly not feasible for a guy from a small town like Gwalior to think about coming to Mumbai to become an actor.
I didn’t have any background in acting and didn’t know anyone from Bollywood. So I just told my parents that I want to study in Mumbai and I packed my bags and landed up in Mumbai. I got a 23rd rank in the entrance exam and got admission in DY Patil College and was studying biotechnology. On the side, I studied A LOT about acting (grinning) and started auditioning for ads and movies!
And that’s how I came to know about Pyaar Ka Pachnama through Facebook then I got a call for audition and that’s how my career began”
