“I’m a slight introvert...an extroverted introvert, actually. I am happy being in my own space and doing my own thing. But the profession I am in demands me to be out there, to project my life a little, and to be outgoing; so I’m enjoying a bit of both the worlds. Although, the first impression I make on people is always horribly wrong! I come across as arrogant, a snob, but those who know me and my journey well know exactly how simple I am. I love getting to know people, but I’m just shy. I think acting was destined for me. I wanted to become a lawyer, but due to some family reasons, I couldn’t go to college and ended up in Canada right after school. I did a bunch of odd jobs there to get through life, and eventually, my sister and I decided that that wasn’t how life was going to be. So we packed a suitcase each, and moved to Mumbai, without a clue of what next! From there on, everything just took its course! It was a tough journey, obviously, but I guess when you have nothing to lose, you lose your fears of ifs and buts, too. So six years later, here I am... Still not where I’d like to be, ideally, but it’s a good place to be in for sure!”
