Acting just happened to me. In my teens, I would watch a lot of theatre and enact scenes in front of the mirror. My father (late Shubhendu Chatterjee) had no clue what I wanted to do in life. He would pester me about this and I decided to take up acting as my profession. The other reason for my pursuing this career is that it’s one of the only professions that lets you travel without spending from your own pocket.
