I grew up, pursuing my schooling in an NGO where my dad worked as a teacher. Initially, he was working in a private school and when he got shifted to working in an NGO, my brother and I also joined the foundation as students.
I must say that I was more than blessed to have shared my desks with the children who came from very arduous backgrounds. My father always believed that we were one among them and never treated us special in school, just because we were his kids.
The school supported its children to play games and thus, it made us tougher and more flexible both physically and mentally. I got the opportunity to get exposed to a variety of cultures, stories and perspectives. The foundation has around 2000+ kids now. After my schooling, I was left out with only two options for my college – to choose Engineering or Medicine.
I always aspired to be an actor. But unfortunately, due to society’s survival concepts, I picked up Bio-Tech engineering. My parents thought that I would choose my career based on my graduation.
But I was so much inclined towards acting and yes, I started working on developing my acting skills. Also, my college was rich in cultural activities and all those kept my passion alive.
The media industry will not welcome everybody at the very first attempt – it will take its own time for the people in the industry to recognize our works and devotion.
Meanwhile, my family was a little hesitant on allowing me to choose this path. However, my dad supported my career path and he told me that he’d help me until I settle down in my profession. His powerful gestures gave me the confidence to audaciously take a step in signing projects.
My first movie, Mahira, was released on Amazon Prime in 2019. Luckily, the first film hit the success box; people liked every performance in the movie. And thus, my acting career started rolling on huge terms.
To date, 4 films of mine have been released and 4 are in the post-production stage.
I never let my dreams fade off; I never lost my focus during the process of achieving my dream. To be honest, I believe that the only soul who can motivate, uplift and inspire you is you, yourself! I liked the process of executing my goal, with an uncluttered and clear target. The way I directed my life was filled with only positivity, vision and conviction!
I wouldn’t want to change anything from the past because I love where I’m right now and destiny rightly carried me to how I actually want my life to look like.
Becoming an actor, from a very nominal family, with no prior background, is challenging but I lived every moment and cherished the whole process heartfully and that’s how I am living my dream now!”
