After winning the show, he shared that,
Roadies’ has been a childhood dream. I went for the Delhi audition, I got rejected and was a little demotivated, but then my family was there, they supported me and motivated me. Then I went for the Chandigarh audition, and finally I made it. One of the main reasons to enter ‘Roadies’ was that I wanted to have confidence in myself, and I’ve got that finally.”
