"I thought what should I do everybody making extra pocket money I was in second-year college? Then I thought let me do what I love so I just joined the school called KV public school in Gurgaon sector 14 - then I did 1 play for their annual day function. I was there for 3 months then I focused on myself and learnt," he added.
