[Q3] Generally people are focused to be either an engineer or a doctor; What made you get in glamour world ?
Since Childhood I was very fascinated towards this industry, and I always wanted to do something creative and unique in life. When I use to watch TV at home, I use to tell “mumma I want to be there”, I could never imagine myself as an engineer and doctor, so I think it was something inborn for me.
[Q4] How was your parents reaction, were they supportive ?
Unlike other parents, My parents were always supportive, they respected my discussions, Though they have never imagine that I would do something big in life; and I think even today they don’t believe that I have actually reached these heights of success. At the end, all they want me and my brother to stay Humble, grounded and respect everyone.
[Q5] How much difficult it is to establish yourself in a glamours world or in a event company; What were the problems you faced in start up ?
When You have a will to do something in life and make it big, Trust me nothing is difficult, In fact its fun and interesting.
[Q6] What do you think is the biggest thing you achieved in this field so far ?
I Feel Every event I do…till date, is as big as the last one. I always feel an achievement in successful execution of every event.
I still remember my first event, Which was offered to me as a host, when I was in my second year of college, The day I first hold the mike professionally and spoke to 100 people for 6 hours and earned that 400 Rs. and this very first income will always be my biggest achievement forever.
Also the day I was selected as the biggest fan of Katrina Kaif, and got the shoot with her and met her, and my photo with her was on front page of leading newspaper, then watching it online on UTV Stars was also an achievement.
My Childhood friend ‘Sanjay’ who is now rocking with his portal ‘abutimes.com’ appreciates my work and now my interview is being published on his portal is also among the achievements for me 😀 😛
