He shares: “As I started with my first show, I got the tags of being bhola bhala (innocent), gharelu ladka (homely boy), and chocolaty boy. No doubt all those worked for me. I feel any actor would love to hear such compliments. As being favourite among audience really works in acting career. But still as an actor I wasn’t satisfied with what I was doing and I knew I wanted to explore. I enjoy experiments.”
