After I completed my MBA and before I entered into acting I was working as a Marketing Manager for an IT firm in Mumbai. Acting happened unexpectedly when I was spotted in a gym and was called for an audition.
When entertainment came on my way, I put that across to my dad and asked him a time of six months and when he granted me those six months I never knew that it would turn to six years. Had I not become successful in my acting venture, I would have returned to my earlier job.
Today I guess my parents are happy when people around them tell them that they saw their son on television.
In one way I am glad that I completed my education before I entered the industry because whatever you say, it values a lot. Indeed I was planning to go abroad also if I had not been successful.
In future, I might put up an exhibition of my paintings. Since I have not sold even one I do not know if I will be able to do it in future. They are my priced possessions.
To the people who are aspiring to enter in the industry, I would like to say that please complete your education and then you can do whatever you want. The industry is an unpredictable one and can turn you upside down anytime.
