In the second year of college, he joined a dance group and wanted to perform in Graphic Era’s Annual Fest GRAFEST, But it was not so easy to qualify in the audition.

After this, he participated in many dance competitions at university level and he also won the first prizes in the annual fests of IIT Delhi and IIT Roorkee
