Tell us how the acting bug bit you?
I was enamoured by films in my younger days. In my childhood, I used to think that it is because of the fame attached to them, but in due course of time, I realised it was the experience of sitting in the theatre and getting mesmerized by what’s happening on the screen.

You trained at the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). Why did you feel the need to train as an actor?
