I wanted to do something that brings me back with a bang. Honestly, Pandya Store was a gamble for me. I saw the Tamil version, called up the production and said, ‘I am in for it.’ There was something about the show; there is a reason why it is such a big hit down South that it’s still on air.”

I’ve got you a bike for college, use your bike, go audition.’ So, for a year, non-stop, I used to go from Thakur college to Aaraam Nagar, Andheri everyday after college and stand in the long queue for advertisements’ auditions but they never worked out for me ever till date. “Out of anger, I don’t even go for meetings because I have struggled so much for ads and not even one ad worked out for me. So, I have stopped going for ads meetings. So, yes, I have seen those days and I am glad that my father didn’t make it easy for me, I’ve learnt it the hard way.”

My father is my idol. He’s that person, whom I have never seen calling and asking for work from anyone. He is a self made man. He was a farmer in Punjab and shifted to Bombay, he struggled and made it on his own. Whatever work he’s done, he has done it respectfully and never asked for work. ‘Jis insaan ne khudke liye call nahi kiya, main kyun umeed karun ki vo mere liye call kare?’
