Before becoming an actor, I had started my career as a social media influencer, through which I gained a lot of fan following. I would definitely agree that I had to and still have to undergo a lot of struggle and work my way through to get a role. At the same time, I believe that social media influencers, if wanting to become an actor, should be given a chance not looking at their background but also the hard work that they put in their reels which kind of is acting only.”
