Act from the Heart...
"If you do not have a dream, you wont have a dream come true"
Hailing from Dilaram, a small Village in Punjab; I had a dream, a crazy idea, an idea so compelling, that I happily gave up everything I was familiar with, to chase that dream. I entered an unknown domain, a totally new territory-which was new to me and to all back home. Bollywood was the domain and Acting was that dream - I still don't know if this is my destiny unfolding or if it is me making the choices here, but what I do know is that in due course, the journey I have undertaken will enrich me every step of the way......
Acting is what I love and enjoy. It fulfills me, propels me and sates me. For me: to Act (to emote) is a gift, a blessing and an honor
.....and to act from the heart is like a prayer.
My life has been impacted by many a film, and I, on my part hope to touch & move the lives of others in the same way as mine had been subjected to....
The road less travelled
I chose a path-an unfamiliar path embarking on a journey that no one back home had ever traversed..In my innocent ignorance, Until the time, I reached Mumbai and touched the last stop, I wasn't even aware that Bandra was Mumbai too!!!!! :-)
I have never given much thought to my impulses, I just follow them. I’m a Vagabond-an impulsive one at that... . My soul is a refuge to everything contradictory and still manages to survive just fine despite all its dilemmas,. By nature I am The last one to judge,and the first one to open my heart . "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you" is the mantra I believe in & follow.
I very firmly believe in the magic of life and nothing can keep me down for long. I am a conformed optimist, I always remind myself 'This too shall pass....' in both, good and bad times alike and the favorite phrase that I often tell myself is 'Who knows these things??!!'. I have tremendous faith in the power of prayer and in the power of thoughts and I am here to just LIVE and BREATHE…
I grew up in a small town, a shy boy - I had never thought I would ever be a part of a world filled with stardust and red carpets. The only (dream) I cherished was to study hard and someday. travel the world.
Unlike many children, who at an early age are confident enough to go up on stage and perform, I was a first bencher--a bookworm concentrating and focusing on studies. I believed that film-stars were born in a 'la la land'--a Fantasy land known as Mumbai. While viewing films, though I would stay mesmerized and wide-eyed watching my star-icons dazzle the screen with their performances, never ever did the thought even occur to me that one day I too could/would become a part of this beautiful and magical world called 'cinema.'
My journey from being an engineer and working at Engineers India Limited to finally coming and settling down in Mumbai is in actuality no less than a fairy tale.
Aah Delhi was my game changer! It was in Delhi that the hitherto dormant dream of my boyhood days took form and I dared to work towards realizing my dream; hence I owe a lot to Delhi.. Today, I am putting in my 'Bestest' to fix myself in tinsel town with diligence,and perseverance, all on my own with Just my prayers as my guiding force. I feel, as if The Divine Powers say to me, "You do what u 'Can' and I will do what you 'Can't'
