I saw only one Hindi film
before joining Bollywood.
It was 'Awara'. I was five.
But the fascination for
cinema continued...
till today...
In London, my free time was
spent outside the gates of
Twickenham Studios..
absorbing the smells..
the magic...
I knew, without a doubt
that I wanted to be an actor.
The first struggle was to get my
parents to agree!
Faced with their opposition I resorted
to a hunger strike. (btw not
They succumbed - and I was given
one year to pursue my dream..
The meter was down!
I was 15. Fresh from school.
I felt I had arrived on an alien planet,
I knew no one; had no contacts;
no friends...
Just a dream to be a movie star...
