I am an actor because I want to live various lives, and films are the only way I can do that.
Summarise your journey so far.
I have not compromised in my films. I have chosen to make my own path and I want to do what my heart says.
How do you decide on a film?
When I read a script I look for something different, something that makes me explore new things. I need to be excited and the film should push me as an actor.
What is your biggest learning thus far?
It is very important to challenge yourself as an actor because I don’t like things that come easy. I don’t like to put myself in a comfort zone as that is a very dangerous spot.
I think an incredible alchemy happens when you draw, especially when you’re a child; you make a mark and you create space, you add a few lines, and you derive depth. As you add more marks, a world begins to originate on a piece of paper, and you feel incredibly empowered.
