I am an Indian-American actor and filmmaker from California. I made my big screen debut with the Bollywood blockbuster Love Aajkal ten years ago and have done over two dozen films since then. I have played the lead in several shorts that have received accolades at international film festivals with Trail Past Prejudice, which I wrote and directed, winning the Silver Remi Award at WorldFest Houston in 2018. I am also thrilled to have worked on the award-winning virtual reality comedy series, UTurn VR which played at Cannes in 2019.
I am proudest of my work in juvenile halls through Each One Reach One for which I was awarded a Certificate of Honor by the city and county of San Francisco for creating a positive impact through the arts.
A graduate of Columbia University, University of Mumbai and University of Delhi, I opted out of a career in investment banking to pursue the performing arts.
