Tell us about your journey in entertainment industry till now.
I have been performing on stage since school days. Once I happened to land a chance to perform with a troupe in Mumbai. I packed his bags and came to Mumbai with his family. Later Baal Veer happened which I feel is the biggest blessing of God to him.
How you balance your studies and shooting work?
I am currently studying in class-7, balancing acting with school properly. I even study during break on the shoots. I have been constantly getting a good percentage and always been appreciated by friends and teachers alike. In the current scheme of things, I can just attend school for ten days. My special regards goes to my school which is kind enough to grant me leave considering my work commitments. But I am proud to say that I haven’t missed any exam or class activity so far.
How it feels to be a celebrity?
I am very happy that I have got immense love and appreciation from people for my role. I am overwhelmed with the response people have given to my role. I received many compliments from my school friends, audience and my Facebook friends and the likes are only growing by the day.
Tell us about your experience on sets?
I enjoy every bit of shooting. Everyone on the sets seems to be very nice and humble. I always used to dream about fairies and fairyland. Today, I am immeasurably happy that my dreams have tuned into reality.”
Your future plans?
I would simply love to pursue acting for years to come and want to get into films. But I also dream of becoming a pilot someday.
Nagpur Today wishes all the luck and success to this multi-talented kid.
