A page from the personal diary of Abhinav Shukla
I was a good student in school and college. I was particularly good at science, my favourite subject. My dad had inspired me to become a scientist. So I opted for a non-medical career like engineering and bio-metrics.
I took up electronics and communications. I was all set to becoming a scientist and go on to pursue a PHD in the same. I was a good student and I had set my goals. I had planned to finish my graduation and then probably go to the US and involve myself in developing prosthetic devices like artificial limbs.
It was during my pre-finals when I got a chance for Gladrags. I went for the selection and I spent about a fortnight there. It was this time when I realized that the whole experience was different from what I had been living for the past 21 years. It was a different experience when I was on stage and there were cameras on me, there was professional choreography and instructors telling us at each step what to do. I realised it was a completely different lifestyle altogether.
When I came back, my friends had different opinions, but I wanted to pursue my engineering too. But somewhere I had started thinking about my Gladrags experience. I completed my engineering. But I guess the motivation level was almost 60 per cent. I somehow felt I had it in me to pursue modelling and acting.
I moved to Mumbai and things began happening for me. I am glad I thought that way or else I would have been sitting somewhere in the US making prosthetic devices, but now I am in suburban Mumbai doing daily shows and soaps.
