For me it happened really early in my life. I was just 18 and a half and was studying in Ruia College in Mumbai and I was never interested in acting that much. I loved dancing a lot but I was never inclined towards acting. Once I was chatting with my friend and they told me that there was an audition happening at Balaji and they were like let’s go and see how it is. That’s when I thought I should give acting a shot and I never looked back. I decided to make acting as my career.” The Times of India
