Mumbai-based activist lawyer Susan Abraham gave my reference to the makers of Court. I am an activist and not a professional actor. I never thought I would work in a movie. Most of the actors in the film are first timers like me. Playing the role of Narayan Kamble, an Ambedkarite artiste, was not difficult for me. I have experienced the lapses in the justice delivery system

Dancing was not allowed in school, but I used to participate in college talent fests. I was around 17 years of age when I started working with Terence (Lewis) sir and dancing became a part of my everyday life. I only knew hip hop dancing and had no clue about other dance forms.
I used to practice alone. Whenever my father came home, I used to hide all my music instruments and open a book and act as if I was studying. Every parent needs a proof, and I proved that. I practiced a lot. After DID, everything changed. My father and mother were happy after that and told me, ‘You do this only. This is what you were born to do.’
It’s been a great journey. May be one regret. If I could change anything in these 20 years, that afternoon in Johannesburg during the 2003 World Cup final (where India lost to Australia). But nothing else as it’s all about destiny.
I can’t recall when was the exact time but, I started doing mimicry of celebrities initially and my uncle saw the talent of acting in me. Further, he enrolled me in acting school Sri Ram Center where I learned a lot of things. So, by far officially it has been 10 years in the industry of my work unofficially and 6 years officially.
