I grew up watching Hindi/Urdu films and as a kid i always wanted to be some one ( famous ) , magar living in a small country like Bahrain things never looked anywhere near possible. Few years later came here and somehow got in to media but working in films was still not my To do list as i Dont regard my self as an actor.

It was until 2011/2012 that i got selected to do Voice-over ( background Voice ) for lead actor of Bolly-Brit film Naachle london as a regular movie goer for me it was rather strange that i went to see a film to hear my voice.

Finally last year a dear friend and truly inspiring Mr Adnan Kapadia was writing his first film and hired me as his assistant to write dialogues for his First British-Asian Comedy film in Hindi, we spent a lot of time in the office discussing scenes and first time in my life i realsied how tough the job is to create a story from scratch and put life in to characters, this film had several characters old , young , black and white, i quite enjoyed the whole experience and finally we organised casting for the film and luckily with in days i could see those characters in real.

Funny enough i my self gave auditions for one of the characters but never got it as we had some exceptional talent already about 3 weeks later i got a call from producers that they wanted me to do the role of Anna ( Main Villain ) as i could a decent south Indian accent , we i still remember i just got very exited started eating Masala dosa and watching Rajnikanth LOL. we filmed the film between Nov-December last year and currently its in Post-Production lets hope you guys like me on big screen
