2 Journey From Jamnagar To Mumbai
While he was preparing for his 12th standard exams, his friend saw an ad asking for actors in Mumbai, seeing that he only wrote and posted a letter, soon within a week he received a reply and left his studies to live his passion. After convincing his parents, they gave him just a month to make a career in acting or to come back. With just Rs 2600 which was collected from everywhere, he left for Mumbai. When he reached the place, they took the money from him and asked him to come again next week. Unfortunately, it was a con story. There was neither office nor people. Out of frustration and anger, he promised himself that unless he gets back what he lost he is not leaving Mumbai.
3 His Struggling Days
He opened a dance class by the name of Super Brats at Churni Road. Along with three other friends, it expanded to two more branches, one in Andheri and other in Borivali.
“I used to travel to Churni Road in the morning, take the class there, come to Borivili for the second class and then catch the train to come to Andheri for my last class before I can go home.”
It was in the All India Dance Competition that their team came first and got noticed. At that time, Ahmed Khan was working on Ram Gopal Varma's Rangeela and was on the lookout for fresh faces, for which they got selected.
4 The Beginning Of His Journey
Even with his incredible talent, he was rejected because of his dark complexion and unattractive features. It was indeed his dancing skill which was acknowledged and he was selected for Rangeela's first song, Ai re ai re.... Since then he started assisting Ahmed.
After a year he was confident enough to take up individual assignments. Though it was a risk he was taking. It was Anubhav Sinha who gave him his first video for Sonu Nigam's album Deewana. The video was a big hit. Soon he was working on four music videos in a day.
5 No Stopping For Him
