Talking about his early experiences in the industry, the actor said how difficult it initially was for him. “You know, I have been rejected a lot of times. It was not easy for me to get into the industry.”

He went on to add, “Like I remember when I used to go for TV shows, they used to reject me saying, ‘No, you have a very hard face, you should try for modelling instead. And when I used to go for modelling, they used to tell me, ‘Your face is very soft, you should try your hands in acting.’ And I used to feel like, ‘Oh nobody wants me’. So it took a lot of time for me to get zeroed down for my first show.”
