I failed my 10th standard when I was in Ratnagiri, but I had big


dreams. My family was part of a small community where the
main profession was that of being a barber. My grand father,
father and uncles were all barbers and I knew that this would
be my future too but I wasnt willing to stop at just doing
beards and straight cuts; I wanted to work as a professional

hairdresser and stylist in the lm industry.

I rst visited Mumbai 10 years back for a cousins wedding. Ill


be honest, the wedding was just an excuse; my heart knew that
I was here for another reason I was here to follow my dreams
and make something of myself. After the marriage I stayed
back to work at parlour in Dahisar. My cousins back home
laughed at me, they jokingly said an ugly looking man like me
who didnt even know Hindi would never be able to survive in
this cityforget making it big but something in me told me that
I had to give it my best shot. I worked sincerely and
passionately, not for the money but only for the experience. I
wasnt making any money at all I remember bathing on the
streets for almost three monthsI couldnt afford anything
else. Even though I was broke, without a house and money, I
knew that someday I would be in a better placeI believed in
that with all my heart.

As time passed, I got a call for an interview at a bigger salon. I


remember looking at my clothes and thinking that they wont
ever hire someone who doesnt even have a decent t-shirt to
wear, but thankfully they looked passed my appearance and

and the help of a few people I now speak uent English!

Im 33 years old now, and when I look back at my journey I feel


proud. From learning how to cut hair from by uncle every
Sunday at the age of 11 to ying to Europe for a wedding as a
professional, from dreaming about working in Bollywood to
actually working with stars like Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol
in the movie Aisha, from showering on the road to buying a
good apartment of my own, from coming to Bombay penniless
to saving enough money to support my 4 brothers and parents,
from having no name or fame to being featured in Vogue all
my dreams came true. Why? Because I believed in myself so
stubbornly, that the world had no other option but to believe in
me too.
