I was editing for Kunal Kapoor when I got my first film ‘Jaan Tere Naam’ as lead actor.
I was born in Nagpur and brought up in Ahmedabad, where my father had a small factory.
After quitting my job with Sea Rock, I became a Mukta Arts flunky.
I decided to do advertising, as ad films were made in only 10 days, and started assisting Sanjeev Sharma and Mansoor Khan. Surprisingly, I was a whiz kid and soon learnt to edit films and became an expert at it.
I am a foodie, but I prefer to be at home and enjoy home-cooked food.
My family celebrates both the navratras that come twice in a year. We also refrain from eating meat. I just enjoy that people come home, savour the variety of snacks and participate in our puja during this time.
My wife Neelam is a North Indian, so she will make North Indian food, while my mother will make Bengali food.
