In the same post, he also shared his story of making his debut as an actor and then shifting to direction, "I started my career as an actor and did a number of movies as a leading man... many of them didn't even see the light of day and the ones that did, failed miserably. Then, I wrote a story called Aryan and made a shift to direction. That movie didn't succeed either. I went back to work and made another movie which many thought would barely make a mark .On the 28th of August 2008, exactly 10 years ago, that movie, Rock On!! premiered and went on to succeed like no other that year and won two National Awards... I had finally got my head out of the water and could breathe."
