Q1. What did you say in your audition for the role of Ishaan?
I remember auditioning for the scene in which the teacher wants me to read the adjectives ‘loud and proper.’ I just had to give the expressions and react according to myself.

Parents are of course strict in terms of studies and discipline which I think all parents are, but we have to understand that it is for our own good. We decide all our projects jointly.
Q5. How did you prepare for your role of Pinu in Bumm Bumm Bole?

Q6. What did you enjoy about working in Zokkomon?
There was a lot of stunt work and I had to be hanging in the air at crazy heights and do all sorts of flying. It was a unique experience and working with Disney was always a dream.

Yes I will love to continue acting as my career as it is something I love doing. Of course I’ll have to finish my graduation and I will achieve a decent enough degree too.
