He adds, “I made friends for life and met the love of my life through theatre. I remember commuting from my college in South Bombay to Prithvi Theatre in Juhu. I was mesmerised by the world of theatre and artists giving their all while performing. For quite some time, I had been in the audience just watching performances for the sheer joy it brought me and soon enough the roles reversed and I became a performer. So I always say I am an actor by pure accident and I owe the highs of my journey to theatre.”
