My father forcibly recruited me in the army. I worked as a telephone operator in army but the bug for films drew me to Mumbai. I quit my job and joined movies. I had to struggle tooth and nail to survive but all attempts were futile and I was compelled to move back and join army again. However, I was restless as my heart wandered in Bollywood. My friend suggested me to focus on my job and stop dreaming but I was destined to become a film lyricist hence the second time when I quit my army job and made an attempt in Mumbai, lady luck smiled.
