Acting was actually my last choice. I dropped out of my engineering course and opted for a visual communication course, as I knew that I wanted to be part of films. But I wasn’t sure in what way. I studied cinematography and editing for a while and thought I would be a behind-the-scenes person, as I had no real experience in acting. As part of my course, I had to do a short film, which I directed and acted in. But I did it primarily to learn about cinema, and never showed it to anyone. But Vineeth happened to watch it on my laptop once, and I think that must have prompted him to invite me to act. I was still hesitant, but my friends who were part of the short film too said I did an ok job as an actor and I decided to give it a try.
