I am a volcano of talent with army discipline in my genes, sports in my blood, VJing and biking in my heart and acting on my mind. I am a very filmy person and as a child I often thought of becoming an actor though I never underwent training.
Being in the industry, it is necessary to grow from one level to another, and after being the face of MTV for more than half a decade, the next step for me was acting. I haven’t had an easy way out with no filmy background or a godfather in the industry.
I have had my share of disappointments too.
I had signed up some films which got canned, one of which was ‘Direct Dil Se’.
‘Mumbai Cutting’, a short film I did for a friend, was shown at film festivals.
I was one of my initial film projects.
Simultaneously, ‘Toss’, which released in August 2009, happened. ‘London Dreams’ was a big break. ‘Action Replay’, ‘Ekaant’, ‘Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene’ and an untitled film with Mahesh Manjrekar are in the pipeline.
