It's an extraordinary journey for me, I am so blessed to meet great people here who all guide you and are open to all the people all over the world irrespective of their race, religion, color, age, hight and so many other judgemental criterias. It feels so good when people look at you as a human being, as an actor,

I am on this beautiful journey and I am enjoying every bit of it, let's see where
it goes. Honestly I am learning so much and it's very precious for me.
What did you like about the storyline and your role in Batla House ?
Batla House encounter officially known as Operation Batla House, took place
on 19 September 2008, against Indian Mujahideen(IM) terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi, in which two terrorists, Atif Ameen and Mohammad Sajid, were killed while two other Mohammad Saif and Zeeshan, were arrested, while Ariz Khan managed to escape.
Encounter specialist and Delhi Police inspector Mohan Chand Sharma was martyred during the incident.
The encounter led to arrest of a number of local people, leading to widespread allegations and protests by political parties, civil society groups, activists,  especially teachers and students of the Jamia Millia Islamia University.
The story is based on this event.
