I actually wanted to become a cricketer. My favorite cricketers were Wasim Akhtar and Shoaib Akhtar. My parents were confused about my desire to become a cricketer. They would think, ‘Is he that good? Will he go onto national or international level?’ My grandfather wanted me to become a lawyer though. The acting was always a part-time thing.
What happened with film-making was that I was sitting with a friend when Kara Film Festival was happening and he told me to give it a try. I was a big-time wrestling fan and I used to make fan videos on Windows Movie Maker. I gave it a shot and failed miserably but I wanted to keep going. And when I acted, I felt really good. I derived a lot of energy from my audience and I thought – yeah, this is a great feeling.
