Must know Hindi

My par­ents used my childhood am­bi­tion of be­ing a Bol­ly­wood ac­tor to their ad­van­tage. They said,“If you want to be in Bol­ly­wood, you must know how to speak Hindi.”

Fol­low Bol­ly­wood

I grew up watch­ing Hindi films and loved danc­ing to songs. My bed­room walls were adorned with posters of Sridevi and Mad­huri Dixit.

Don’t say no to work even if it is a small part

I was dis­suaded from do­ing all the roles that I have done so far. But I feel to be suc­cess­ful, one should keep work­ing and keep build­ing one’s skills.

Don’t give up

I re­alised that find­ing the right script, the right project and the right peo­ple doesn’t hap­pen eas­ily. I had to take the knocks, pick my­self up and keep go­ing on.
