In fact, I feel lucky and blessed to be selected and given an opportunity to work in two of his biggest productions. It is him, who has strongly believed in me and my abilities to play a very significant and lead role in my very first show on Indian television. He has been my mentor and once again he has given me a fantastic opportunity to portray the role of Darius in Porus. People have loved the show and my character and ever since the show went on air, everyone has been calling me and appreciating my work in the show. Therefore, in the way, we both have been lucky for each other.”
