Tell us about how happened for you almost a decade ago.
It wasn’t a deliberate move then and acting was never a plan. A friend happened to show my pictures to the production house and gave them a history of my sporting background, mentioning that I studied at a boarding school and was heavily into sports. It was all so sudden because I had never really shot a portfolio; I didn’t even know what giving a side profile meant and as soon as I finished, I was just selected that very night. In fact it took me an entire week to tell my father that I had bagged a role and I was rethinking my decision to pursue an MBA overseas. But it all ended well and my family supported my decision. The film was largely about sports development and my father always knew how strongly I felt about the subject.
