He even bagged the National Olympiad in Physics and has cleared 11 engineering entrance tests but finally chose DCE. 

Being a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan since the days of DDLJ, and it was in 2006, he dropped the bomb at home when he in his final years announced his exit from Engineering and headed to Mumbai to start a career in acting. He then joined Barry John’s acting school doing his three month’s training in acting. He loved his presence on stage as he was able to engage the audience. Besides, he also got trained in dance and martial arts.

The Bollywood happened in his life in 2011 with the film Kai Po Che, which was based on Chetan Bhagat’s book My Three Mistakes. Since then it has not looking back for the actor. He kept on getting one film to the other. Some of the films he did included ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, ‘PK’, ‘MS Dhoni The Untold Story’, ‘Raabta’, ‘Welcome to New York’, ‘Kedarnath’, ‘Son Chidiya’, ‘Chichhore’, and ‘Drive’. However, with MS Dhoni, he was able to prove his competence. While talking about his upcoming films, he had one- Dil Bechara.
