So yes, not many know this, but I was a part of Anupam Sir’s acting school in the early days of my career. He has been my guiding light, my mentor, and my first teacher in the entertainment industry. Learning from his institute was an invaluable experience. It taught me that acting should feel natural; you must immerse yourself in the character and react authentically. While I learned the basics at his school, I’ve always added my unique touch to every character I portray.”
