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.
