“I actually feel bad for actors, or anyone who wants to become an actor. Because, once you’ve taken a fancy to acting, you’re done for! It’ll never leave you and you’ll always be greedy for more. I’ve been performing on stage since I was six, but it wasn’t something I thought I’d do professionally. I studied design in Parsons School of Design, New York, and ended up discovering independent cinema and performance art there, instead. The pull was too strong, and I kept circling back to it. It was a rather intense journey of fear and self-loathing, to be honest. Every moment that I wasn’t pursuing acting, I felt like a failure, until I realised that the biggest failure was that I wasn’t committed to the pursuit. That’s when I moved to Mumbai, about five years ago...and the rest, as they say, is history! Human beings fascinate me, as do their stories. I think that’s why I act, and write. So if not this, I would have been a psychologist or an alternative therapist of some sort. Somebody once told me that I was like a plum—there’s a very thin, acerbic layer of wit, sarcasm, and opinions, but quickly beneath it, there is a highly emotional ball of sugar! That might be the best description I’ve heard of myself.”
