“I’m just excited to be a part of this wonderful industry. Films and acting has been something I’ve always been interested in, glam isn’t what attracted me to this, my love for the craft and film did! I’m excited for the destination and the journey already excites me,” Ahaan told IANS when asked if he is excited about all the glitter and buzz that the showbiz business gives to a new face.

Ahaan, who has been part of several short films in the past, has now associated with online fashion destination

Talking about it, he said: “ as a brand was something I always followed... this opportunity, just solidified my love for the brand.”

“I feel shooting for a brand just shows you a different side of what magic a camera can do, it also gives you a lot of exposure to a camera which always helps. Also since shoots like these are more systematic and technical it teaches you a lot about profiles, and how you look on camera, and basically what works for you and what doesn’t,” he said.
