Tell us something about yourself?

What happened when people started noticing you look like Virat Kohli?
“When Virat Kohli was in the Under-19 Team and I was in school, I noticed my identity is quite similar to Virat’s and during my college years Virat Kohli became very popular everywhere, people started pointing out that I look like Virat and I became an international icon in my college.”
What was your parents' reaction to your career choice?
“Initially my parents had mixed feelings about my career choice. Being brought up in a middle-class family of Sultanpur they felt, their dreams were put up on the back burner.”
What was your mission at the outset?
“Since childhood, I had an inner voice to become an actor and my face is quite similar to Virat Kohli, therefore I had to prove myself in this field.

Akhtar was planning a biopic on Virat Kohli and due to my resemblance to Virat’s, everything fell into one place.”
What do you want to change about this industry?
