Honestly everything has its own charm, I love doing TVC’s the idea of emoting and telling a story in a minute or less, really excites me, I love that.TV has its own charm, the reach and connect with audience and fans is lovely, almost as if you become a part of their daily routine. Web platform is like experimenting, with different ideas and scripts which is a delight for both creator and viewer. Films are larger than life. They envelope you. That big screen, is a pure joy.

You have worked with some excellent actors like Piyush Mishra, Ajay Devgn, Tabu how was your experience of working with them?
It was a surreal experience, just to watch all these actors perform or rehearse, just to be able to observe them… Is a treat.

I am comfortable and happy with any genre, that way I am constantly sharpening my skills and hopefully becoming a better artist.
One Hollywood film you wish to be apart of if remade in Bollywood
Before we go, I just love that film
We lost a great director Nishikant Kamat this year but you had an opportunity of working with him, how was he on set?
Well I very well remember that day, I went silent for some time. I remember him as a man of few words, he would come, tell me exactly what he wants and that’s about it. Today wherever he is, I wish nothing but the best for him.
A dream director you wish to work with?
There are way too many, taking one name would be extremely hard!
i. Your favourite film till date?
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Dil Dhadakne Do & Before we go
ii. One thing you dislike about your field?
The wait to see the magic created on set to unfold on screen.
iii. What superpower you wish you had and why?
Super power, would be body shaping. Working out can be so tedious and time taking. I’d be able to get in shape and out of shape whenever required.
iv. If not an actor what would you be?
If not an actor I would be a chef, I really enjoy cooking, but maybe I’d do that with an open kitchen set up
v.Road trips or treks
Treks, it’s almost like stepping into a different world, and being surrounded by nature and the immensity of mountains would be great.
