Tell us about your journey in the industry so far.
When I first came to Mumbai, I assisted director Saumitra Singh who has also directed a short film, The Wallet, starring Nasiruddin Shah, which can now be streamed on Hotstar. I have also assisted him with a short film, Kala Bai from Byculla, which will be released soon. Apart from assisting, I have also acted in a film called Aakhri Panna, on MX Player. After this, I got selected for Chattis aur Maina which has released now.
Elaborate on the role in the show.
In Chattis aur Maina, my character name is Rajat, who is a Personal Assistant of a known politician Politician named Rakamchand ji. At the same time, I also act as a shopkeeper in my father's library when he is not there. You will see interesting stories when you watch the show yourself."
What kind of prep went into your character?
I have not done any preparations as such for the role because I am a director's actor. Whatever our director, Shraddha ma'am, had asked me to do, I did the same. I feel if you put your inputs, whatever the director has planned will not be executed properly. As far as preparation is concerned, I took some time off when I got the part and played the role thereafter.
What has been the feedback so far?
The show has released and I am getting amazing feedback for my character on the show. I am thankful to my director for giving me such an amazing opportunity. Hoping more such works come my way.
