From being an AD and fashion designer to an actor seems to be quite a shift. How did that happen? 
I never really wanted to become an actor. Of course I wanted to do some modelling. I did a course in designing and came to Mumbai where I worked for some designers, styled many celebrities, Amitabh Bachchan being one of them, and then I assisted some directors, including the likes of Ram Gopal Varma. After that I took baby steps towards modelling, followed it by doing some TVCs. That's where my inclination for acting started. After that, I did a course in acting and tried my luck in Bollywood films. I never thought of doing a TV soap, but may be it was destined. Nisha, who I was dating at that point, suggested that I take up Yeh Rishta..., after I had been auditioned and selected for the same. 

So there really wasn't too much of struggle to find your toehold in showbiz? 
Oh no! It was very tough to survive in Mumbai for six years. Costume designing helped me financially. Many aspiring actors had to return because nothing had worked out for them. I too had given myself a deadline, and I did get a role in Love Story 2050, but I realized that doing films and getting noticed were not my cup of tea. I think Nisha's not only my source of encouragement but she also brought luck with her! I'm glad I'm doing this show and I'm happy. 

Have you earned friends in this glamour industry? 
Yes, I've been lucky. I have a handful few true friends in the glamour world. It is good fun to be with them and they've been with me in my good and tough times. I think very rarely does one get good friends and I'm glad I've been so lucky with my friends. 

What's on your mind in terms of career these days? No more Bollywood plans? 
Well, I aspire to do Hollywood projects! (Laughs) But on a serious note, I'm getting some Bollywood offers too but, I'm not taking them till Yeh Rishta... is on air. I'll never quit this show because it has given me fame, money and love.
