Films have had a strong influence on me right from the beginning. When a person steps into adolescence, too many things are on his/her mind. Being from a middle-class family everyone from my family expected that I would be a doctor or an engineer but these professions never fascinated me. When I gave a serious thought about acting and realised that I can do well in this field, I decided I must go for it so I started with theatre in Delhi. As time progressed this interest became a passion for me. I learnt a lot from theatre and plays. I started acting at a very early age of 18 and started earning from it at the age of 22.
