Interests

Theatre- My first step on stage was at the age of 5. Winning Best Actor, Best Director awards at the school level were the achievements before I really started to explore theatre. Having performed with different groups in Lucknow, Dehradun and Mumbai, am currently working with Shoelace Productions and recently performed at the prestigious Nandikar theatre festival in Kolkata. Am also working with Mehmood Farooqui on Dastangoi- the forgotten art of storytelling. 

Travel- Have backpacked around the country and it has given me an insight into the socio-cultural diversity that India has. One travels for the love of seeing different cultures, customs, places and people. 

Books- I still believe that Books are a man's best friend. 

Sports- Hockey, Cricket and Boxing are the sports that interest me. Hockey is a sport that one has been playing regularly.
