HOW WILL YOU DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY?

The journey is very beautiful and I have experienced lots of things because I started acting and all the stuff when I was nine. Basically I am from Gujarat and my home town is Ahmedabad so my father he was  writer and director my mom was also an Actress and Even my sister is an actress the only difference is that my  family was in Gujrati industry so started with  radio I did voice dub when I was  nine and then gradually  with studies I used to do stage plays and all I first did a Gujarati daily soap which was aired on Doordarshan and the journey began from there then I  shifted to Mumbai in 2007 October so Mumbai has showered me with love I loved it the day I shifted here I don’t remember a day when the city did not treat me well so I have worked with different production house  with new artist and with new people I have learns something from everything so in fact I believe that till the person is alive they are in a continuous process of learning so it was a beautiful experience and I wish in future also it stays this beautiful

CAREER DREAM YET TO ACHIEVE.

An actor always wants one thing in his life and that is to prove himself that he is an actor every time in every project, so no matter how big the actor is they have the fire in them to Prove the world and to achieve those heights.

I just want to be a good human being because if you are a good human begin you can be anything, even for being a good actor you need to be a good human being.

WHAT DO YOU THINK GOT YOU THIS POPULARITY, HARD WORK OR THE LUCK FACTOR?

It is all about 70% of luck because if you have luck you have worked if you have worked you will work hard for it, so I believe that there is destiny and the destiny will help you reach the destination. Everything is a plan, God has planned everything beforehand, and the only thing is you will have to work hard or work intelligently to achieve the thing.

WHEN WAS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA? DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR FIRST DIALOGUE.

I was very much relaxed all thanks to my parents because I still remember I was kiddo when my mother use to take me to the shoots and all almost you can say I am grown up near the camera. mom is shot and I am somewhere on the set watching the shoot and then I would also go with my dad he use to be a director toh staying on the set I have learnt a lot after particular age like I was 13 ,14 when I became AD on a Gujarati channel  from there I have learned a lot my father uses to say that for a person to be an actor they should know all the thing that goes behind the camera this directly help to grow in front of camera.

SECOND CAREER OPTION IF NOT THE CURRENT PROFESSION.

In the fitness field but obviously because when I was nine I started my work out, fitness is a passion to me even to when the day starts first of all I will go to the gym if I am not working foremost I will go to the gym only after I finish my workout I will start with all other works, I plan my day according to the workout.

 

WHICH BOLLYWOOD DIRECTOR WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH IF YOU GOT A CHANCE?

With Rohit Shetty because his films are dammed funny, his film always makes a mark,  so even if you are working you will have fun and it is my dream to work with him.

CAN YOU SHARE A HUMOROUS INCIDENT FROM YOUR SET?

Long back we were shooting for a show at the film city Bapu Madan, over there Samosawala use to come many actors over there know about it. I generally had the mood to eat chaat Paata in the evening so that day we got a break and I went to eat the samosa I bought 2 to 3 samosa they were small in size with that they  gave chilies and masala and while I was eating the break got over people came to call me  and in a hurry I finish my food and walked in. I was in a relax mood because I had not much to so in the scene I had to a gesture of think so while doing so I rubbed my hands on my face and then my face started to burn I was scream and no one knew why was I screaming. Later I realized that my face was burning because I rubbed the chilly Vala haat which I got with samosas
