Besides training as an actor, I also worked as an anchor, voice-over artist, and assisted in documentary film productions; and continue to do so simply because I thoroughly enjoy it so much! They are all creative fields and give me an opportunity to expand my horizons and meet with interesting people. My last documentary project as an Assistant Director Taala Te Kunjee/ Lock and key won the National Film Award for the Best non-Feature film on Social Issues in the year 2019."

When asked what kind of roles he’d like to do, he says, “I personally enjoy doing intense roles, characters that have emotional depth and several layers and complexities. I love scripts that explore human bonding and relationships. I love working on the portrayal of a character's deepest darkest fear, their inner dilemmas and thought processes and struggles in life. I personally love Zoya Akhtar's work, I thought Made in Heaven was brilliant! I also love Anurag Kashyap's work. I love the realism he brings out in his films and web series.” ALSO READ: Imlie Actress Mayuri Deshmukh On Staying Away From Family And Shooting In Hyderabad- EXCLUSIVE
