The actor has been simultaneously doing films in the south as well and says that it has all helped him get to the position he is at today. “Balancing between the south industry and television has brought me where I am today. I'm in eternal gratitude, hence the plan is to continue to do great work in alternate cinema,” he says.

He is one of the best actors in the industry and is so genuine," he says.
