I have been acting professionally for five years. After doing a post graduate in business management and working for a year at an investment bank, I decided to follow my passion and pursue acting professionally. Over the past five years I have acted in several award winning plays including 'Adhe Adhure', 'August Osage County', 'Aaj Rang Hai', 'Gauhar' and a kids play called "The Dancing Donkey'. I have also had the good fortune to do a Shakespearean play, namely 'The Merchant of Venice', where I played Bassanio. My notable film and TV work include playing an important character in Jolly LLB and the primary antagonist in the hit TV show '24' , which was the original remake of the American Series. I have also shot for a couple of Cineplays (a platform which merges theatre and cinema) namely -'Adhe Adhure' and 'Khamosh Adalat Jaari Hai' . I have also played the title character in the soon to be released web show by Balaji called 'Romil and Jugal'. It has been a great pleasure in working with great actors, writers and directors- all in all a rewarding journey.
