One day when I was travelling in the Kolkata metro, I met this coordinator who offered me a role in a daily soap. He told me that they are looking for a tall and handsome guy. He asked me to give auditions. I said, I didn’t have any problem but I didn’t know anything about what was required during an audition. He explained to me everything and I went to Mumbai. Surprisingly, I got selected and then moved to Mumbai. Everything after that just happened. I guess it was all in destiny.”
