Strangers in the Night


Was acting a pre-given career considering the family you come from?
Not really. Having spent most of my childhood in Delhi, I was pretty much away from Mumbai's film culture except through Boney mama and Anil mama's family. Only when I was in class 12 did I start looking at cinema as a career. After completing my schooling, I joined a film school in the US and then assisted a couple of directors. Now here I am.

How did you overcome your shyness?
I told myself that if I wanted to be an actor I had to be a 'besharam' (shameless). I chose to study cinema in New York because it helped me open up my personality. I came back and acted in short films, one of them for Karan Johar's Dharma Productions which Shakun Batra directed.

You could choose to lead a pampered life?
A. I feel it's better to face the hardships in the beginning. It is important for me to undertake that journey of my career on my own. But let me tell you, my struggle became far easier because I have so much family around.

Do you look up to your uncle Anil Kapoor as an actor?
Without a doubt. I've seen how much of himself he puts in every role. His passion is unmatched. From the time I was a kid I knew what we see is not just acting. There is a lot of hard work involved. He's punctual, hard working and fully focussed. I believe I've inherited his passionate energy.

Amongst your cousins, who are you closest to?
Rhea and I stayed for a year-and-a half in New York together and at that time, we were really close. I am very close to Arjun. Both of us wanted to be actors and it did not come easy for both of us. He wanted to get work outside his father and I too wanted to make it on my own and we were both struggling. We both have a similar journey and are similar in the way that we both think a lot. We are both emotional, hang out together and have the same group of friends.
