“Since the day I decided to act, it was never an easy road for me. Days after my course, at the National School of Drama and my stubbornness to join the small screen in a big way, I started in 1997. Kaam mil raha tha but waisa nai jaisa actors in those days wanted.

I got chota-mota work on television but the pursuit to get that big recognition, at least in the industry, was still far-fetched.

Today too, I am proud to be doing a central role in another longest running comedy daily Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai!

He also recalls how the sitcom got him his first solo interview in those years.

“My father was an ardent follower of Hindustan Times and when I had my first interview printed 10-12 years back in HT City. I just ran to my father and showed him that interview and we was like: ‘Arre waah, behtreen’. In those years social media toh itna tha nai and these were the things that we actors looked forward to. So, you can say recognition and audiences love did eventually find me but abhi aur daur dekhne hai...”
