    About me

    I studied Drama (performance) at Queen Mary's University of London, and have done a number of Fringe theatre Plays in East London. I was part of Flex FX Dance Company, as an actor/dancer for 2 years and performed at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall. I auditioned for a Bollywood Film in London, which opened the door to other opportunities in India, and hence travel a lot between London and India now.

    My career took off on TV for Disney India, with the series 'Ishaan,' produced by Red Chillies Idiot Box.

    I have acted in an Indian themed international film Brahman Naman which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival (In Competition in the World Dramatic Section) and was been picked up by Netflix for US distribution.

    I was seen in Mohit Suri's film Half Girlfriend (Bollywood feature film), where I play Rutvi. Produced by Balaji. I have played the lead in a supernatural feature film currently in post production (2018), titled "night encounters," and also completed a production of Romeo and Juliet, with London based director Mukul Ahmed. We had the privilege to perform in India march 2018 for the theatre Olympics, in association with National school of Drama.

    During lockdown I did shoot a short called "hangouts" currently on Disney Hotstar and Amazon Prime.
