Born and brought up in bhopal-city of lakes:-). Studied in, ankur, campion and all saints. I hail from a family, which is a hardcore Muslim family with so many kids mashallah :-), and I m the youngest among all.

As far as my work is concern, currently I am working as business development executive in an telecom and IT company based in muscat, Oman.also associated with indian fine arts association in oman.

Please tell us, what does dancing and Performing arts mean to you?

for me dancing is the most expressive form of moves your body into luminous fluidity,and surrender it

to the inspiration of soul.

What form of dances you are ‘in’ to?

Salsa, hip hop, indo western.

How was the Journey throughout and what challenges you face in this.?

well I believe in the quote.. Try try try until u succeed.. I never give up easily..initially I was not taken sereously by my family.. And like I said before..I had to face many criticism and leg pulling from my was a time when I was told to move out from my college beacause of less attendance.from my family,as a student I was not allowed to take this hobby as a career....
I had to prove my folks with my achievment so that they will allow me to continue.. It was a tuff time... But now I am here.. :-) answering ur questions on my favourite social page.and sharing my secrets to my city...wat else I could ask for..:-)

What is your major source of inspiration?

my family... Initially they didn't like it.. But when they knew that this kid got something in him.. Then they supported me like anything:-)

How did you come across the opportunity to perform for Basu Bhatacharya Ji?

There is a very intresting story related to my first break in this field..It is an intresting incident which happened with me when I was eleder brother was working as relationship agent for environmental movies and ol, and one fine day when I suddenly came from school he told me that call all your heighted firends as I have to take them for screen test of a movie..
I was not asked to come bcz I was not as tall as it was required for the I cld up all my all friends forced me to come along as they were so shy.. And not comfortable going at the time of screening.. I was sitting behind the director, Mr bhattacharya. And just tryng to help my friends to learn and paraphrase the dialogues..

That time he selected me for the lead role:-) and my friend got selected for the 2nd lead:-) shooting for the movie was fun:-)

As You have worked in “Bharat Bhawan” Let us know what facilities Govt is providing to the artists and is the community happy with what being offered to You guys?

Bhopal Being a small city as compared to other Metros, What do you think is the Prospects of the

New Artists coming in this field.

Bhopal is not at all a small city.. It is goldmine for artist..whenever I introduce myself as a bhopali in this

industry I always got a pat on my back.... Crediy goes to all the seniors who have done some killing roles in

the industry..for new artist.. I would like to add.. There's not a short cut to success..' Thokar khake thaur
