The scientist-turned-actor says, “It’s very important to follow your dream but it’s equally important to excel in academics. As a scientist, I contributed to science, technology and academics but kept pursuing my passion for acting. From theatre to TV, films and web shows I got opportunities to showcase my talent. So, one can surely achieve their dreams – it can be delayed but results do come!”
