How did your career start?
I started my carrier through fitness modeling and acting. I was a normal guy below average looking and people around used to make fun of me and my looks. So, I improved my looks and confidence. After that, some people suggested me to try in the fashion and acting industry. Though I’m both an actor and a model but I focus on acting more.
What are the main modeling jobs that you have done so far?
I started acting and modeling just a little more than one year ago. But I’ve been able to do many photo shoots in a short period. As a professional model, I have worked for about 10 photoshoots for stills (stock) pics for the various brand like FabIndia Magazine, Revistaa Magazine, ActiveBone(gym wear apparels), DUNKALLS Passion for Fashion, ITS PRO Protein supplements and Jaggi Jewellers. I’ve also modeled for photographers in conceptual and fitness photoshoots.

Acting in TVCs, videos, TV programme at DD Kisan, and the TV show MTV Love School 2 is the other half of my career. Other things that I’ve done supporting roles in TV serial “Zindagi Ki Mehak” at Zee TV, web series of Zoya Akhtar, and Half Girlfriend.
