ANSWER: I always wanted to be in films. So, here I am where I was destined to be!
Q.- How did you land up in this movie Holy Cow? And what’s your role in the movie?
A.- I am playing a local gangster’s nephew who is also a wannabe gangster. It’s a funny performance, it’s a black comedy. I was working under Director Sai Kabir since 2014 as his assistant and was working on this project also till this character came up and he offered me this part and from behind the camera I came in front of the camera (he smiles). It’s not a very long track but it’s interesting .

That time he was planning a film about youth which actually never got made and was casting and asked me if I am an actor and told me to come meet him next day at Oakwood hotel where he and his team were operating and the film was titled Jawani in which I was offered a parallel lead .
