Given your family history, can we assume you were this kid who was always waiting for his 'big screen' outing?
As far as I can remember, I have always been passionate about acting and dancing. I watched a lot of movies and observed people, lessons from which I would put to practice.

However, I knew I wanted to do something substantial without compromising on anything. So, Beyond The Clouds was an instinctive choice. I got a call from casting director Honey Trehan. He gave me a brief of the film, showed me some footage on his mobile phone, and that was it. This movie is as close to the ideal debut that I have always wanted.
