“I came from Bhopal in 1999 to become an actor and it took me nearly 18 years to arrive. I hardly had any work in all these years. Earlier, I used to wonder why everyone associated me with just one film but my life indeed changed after Secret Superstar. So, I took it as a benchmark to try multidimensional roles which adds more feather to my cap,” says the Article 370 actor on his visit to Lucknow.
