I come from an academic family, both my sisters are doctors and I was gearing for an MBA when one day I got a call from Ekta asking me to come to Mumbai. Considering it a hoax, I declined the offer twice but then one day I finally decided to go and see the matter and then it was clear and I became an actor."
