C E L E B R I T Y Along with being an accomplished actor, you have also dabbled in production and directing – how did this transition occur? I was working as an actor with Asim Raza, who is a film and TVC director and producer at the Vision Factory, an independent film studio founded in 1997 by Asim himself for some ad projects. While I was there, I developed a keen interest in how things work behind the camera. Eventually, I was offered an internship and I decided to take it. Later on, I worked with the Vision Factory as an assistant director, director and then later as a producer. A few years later I branched out and started The Vision Factory Films with Asim Raza. Our first production was Ho Mann Jahaan. Do these responsibilities ever come in the way of your acting? For example, Ho Mann Jahaan where you joined Asim Raza, as a producer and played the role of Arhaan. Not in the least actually. Working behind the camera has been such an educational and learning experience for me in all regards, be it acting, directing or producing. Due to this experience, I am now a better judge of what acting jobs to take on. If anything, it has been more fruitful for my acting career. Tell us about your process in picking a role. When you read a script it either speaks to you or it does not. When I read a script that excites me, I know I want to be a part of it; I prefer characters that can be essayed in shades of grey. What is a typical day like? Well, it usually starts with a shoot and ends with it if I am shooting! However, usually, I am an early riser and I try to get as much done as possible in a day. I have a healthy and full breakfast and head to the office which takes up most of my day. I try to squeeze in gymming in the evening and then head home to my family and give them time as much as I can, as that is the most important in the end! Project Ghazi was up for release earlier this year, but after the glitches during the premiere, it has vanished from the scene. What are your thoughts on that? I signed on to the project based on the script and my initial meetings with the director.
