See what the man himself has to say…
How Long Have You Been Acting?
I started my theatre journey in 2014. I faced the camera for the very first time in 2016 when the shoot of my debut film Duniyadari began. So, it’s around seven years since I am working as an actor.
Who Inspired You the Most to Come to This Field?
Well, when I started acting I didn’t have much idea about all this. Even I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be a professional actor. However, my father used to act in theatres and my mom used to sing; so I had always been inspired by them. Watching them performing on stage made me want to see myself there at the stage. I was like whatever I do it would be somewhere like that! Moreover, I used to watch a lot of films since childhood and it made me connect to what I do now. Maybe I don’t idolize any certain person but yeah, I met various people while walking this path and have been inspired by many along the way.
Which Film or What Phase Do You Think Is Your Career Highlight?
I worked in the film Satam Aatham written by Neeraj Pandey and Shital Shah was the director. He was the same man who made awesome films like Naam Shabana, Special 26. So, after it was premiered I received lots of loved and praise. It had been a great feeling. Even though the film has not been released yet, I’m sure whenever it comes into the theatre you will love it. I think this is a highlight for my film journey.
About my theatre career, I will say that I received the Best Actor award for back to back two years in the INT; which is very prestigious. I look at these two years as the most glorious part of my theatre journey.
And What Are Your Achievements So Far in your Acting Period?
(Laughs) I have much more to achieve. I look at others and get inspired to work more and give my best to achieve. I don’t think I have yet reached that part where I can talk about my achievements.
What Has Been The Most Exceptional Part of Threatre?
Ghemar Ni Gita is very special to me. It was directed by my Guru and I won INT because of this one. And Ashwatthama has been very challenging for me and that’s why it is very close to my heart. Then I enjoyed doing Satam Aatham very much.
Will You Share Something About Your Upcoming Projects?
First stands Satam Aatham as I said. Another one by Chandresh Bhatt is also ready to release. We have Amit Trivedi’s music there. I’m starting shooting for a movie directed by Anish Shah. Brilliant actors like Arjav Trivedi, Aarohi Patel are also working in it. I’ve already begun preparing for it.
How Do You Handle Difficult Situations?
I won’t say I had to struggle too much because I earned what I wanted or deserved. But my transformation to gain fitness during my college days have been a very tough phase. I put on a lot of weight at that time and I had just begun doing theatres. Reducing that and maintaining fitness till now has been hard. But I am maintaining strictly even now and I’m kind of addicted to fitness.
What Message Do You Have for the GenZ?
Today’s generation wants lots of things within a very less time. I believe you have to work for it as hard work and luck both play a very important role in life. Taking shortcuts and going for things thinking I will succeed easily never work. Patience is the key. And never let ego come in between while working as you may have to work for and under various kinds of people. Letting ego play will only affect your career. Keep learning and work hard and you will receive everything you wish for.

It feels great to be a part of this big industry. Regional films are doing really well and getting a place on the national platform which is great.

So it helps with progression. If things go on like this I’m pretty sure the industry will grow much more.
