In the year 2020 he started as a model and believes that it has been great. “2020 has been a great year for me. Back in 2018, in fact, even 2017, I was trying my luck into acting and modeling but it wasn’t happening. I prayed to God to do whatever was best for me,” shared the rising star who despite proving to be a fantastic model, always wanted to be an actor eventually.

So that came into me too,” he said explaining how he became a Shah Rukh Khan fan too.  “I wanted to become an actor since childhood. So, I used to take part in school plays and events and all.”

The star shared that his parents thought it was just a childhood dream that would fade out with time, but his desire to become an actor only grew. “It makes me happy to be in front of the camera.”
