At the age of 19, I started my journey as an assistant director under Ashutosh Gowariker, my brother-in-law and first mentor. With Ashuda, I really understood the passion and sacrifice that each film takes, and how to devote oneself completely to the journey of the movie one is making… I gave clap for each shot on this movie, and in return, took from it, so much learning, such special relationships and many many memories… ❣️ #startingpoint #memorylane #everythingisconnected
