“I wished to pursue an Automobile or Aeronautical course but since I also earned a medical seat in merit – I joined MBBS.
I bagged into entering huge colleges such as IIT, VIT, and whatnot! However, I picked up medicine, completed a Master’s degree in Dermatology, and then did cosmetology as well.
My father, mother, and younger brother are also doctors. My father is an Anaesthetist & a Deen in a Govt. medical college, on the other hand, my mother is a Pathologist & a professor at a Govt. medical college. My wife is a doctor as well. I’m surrounded by abundant doctors but I own an additional unique phase too.
People think that I’m a nerd but no, I’m a more creative person than a studious human.
I’ve been assisting K.V.Anand sir, Shankar Sir, and a lot more other directors in direction. I do work on scripts, photography and other variations in the film industry. To date, I would have toiled in around 45+ movies as an assistant director and existed in the film industry for more than a decade.
My approach to encountering the film industry dint stop there – I also did act in 6 films with well-known actors from the Tamil industry.
Life for me is about being happy. I never decide on anything beforehand and I wasn’t ready for anything that came my way. I just grabbed all my opportunities more effectively and that’s how I became a doctor, an actor, a photographer, and an AD.
Perhaps, if you ask me now – I wouldn’t force any child to become a doctor unless they’re curious. Whatever field one wishes to take, I would purely and totally push that person to choose what their heart says and advise them to shine in their respective area rather than living others’ dreams. I acted maturely back then in my college which I regret now – I would express this as one of my biggest lacks as I did not enjoy the stage of being immature. But however, that has sculptured me!
Compared to other doctors, I feel elated and satisfied with my role as a doctor now. I visit 8 hospitals such as GEM and also own my clinic at Kilpauk, Chennai. I take turns in visiting other hospitals at Coimbatore, Salem, and Thanjavur occasionally.
I still have a very long way to run and get admired by glimpsing at people who achieve more at a younger age.
One can do anything at any point, irrespective of any challenges. I don’t feel challenges are complex; I take that as an experience and learn something new from it.”
