I was into modelling from my childhood and took part in Hau Mau Khau. Though I didn’t win it, the production house later cast me in a lot of ad campaigns. I’ve been modelling for almost all magazines, newspapers etc since I was in Class IX. My parents were very supportive, but told me not to go overboard with it and let it affect my studies. My thakuma didn’t approve at first, but later, when my parents explained things to her, she was cool about it. I made my film debut with Prashant Nair’s Chittagong and then worked in his film, Umrika. That’s when I got interested in acting.”
