How was it working with Anurag Kashyap and Nawazuddin Siddiqui?

Bagging RR 2.0 was special as I assisted Anurag Kashyap on Gangs of Wasseypur. Being directed by him was a surreal feeling.

Didn’t you lock yourself up to prepare yourself for the Raman Raghav 2.0 audition?

I needed to isolate myself, and was not in touch with friends or family.

Was all of it taxing?

Physically, the role of a drug-addict was dem­anding. I was on a lean diet, even low on water!

From engineering to Bollywood?

As a kid I was interested in studies, cri­c­ket and movies. In my second year of engineering I stepped into a company and knew it wasn’t for me.

Was it in any way helpful that you have a father who is part of Bollywood?

My father was inspiring. He’s self-made—from a stunt man in 1978 to where he has reached now.

Your go-to movie?
