While facing camera I feel, I should kind of presenting my innermost sentiment and emotion through the physical manifestation. I have differing roles upon the demand of the story. Sometimes, I am cool, sometimes, I am aggressive and sometimes, I am romantic. To manifest and to cage my different kind of acting in a whole package is something that I learnt throughout my career.
5. What essentially made you to be a part of film industry?
Ans: Initially I was told to be a doctor, Army Officer, Pilot and so forth. However my inner enthusiasm and gusto to become an actor made me this plausible today. So according to time and situation we become positively different than what we ought to be.
