When I secured my first role in 2003, I was filled with immense excitement to collaborate with a prominent production house and work alongside individuals I had admired on television. It was an entirely new experience for me, as I possessed limited knowledge about acting. Looking back, I can candidly admit that I was far from proficient. However, when you are engrossed in acting, you often remain oblivious to your own performance.

In hindsight, I consider that moment as a pivotal turning point in my life. It made me realize that success doesn't come easily; it requires dedicated effort and serious consideration of your goals. This realization served as my motivation to work diligently and persistently."
