His mother was a devoted Christian, who would regularly visit the church with her son but couldn’t control her husband’s issues. The fact that his father was an addict led Ken to gravitate towards a life of addiction, and he ended up being around people who could have indirectly landed him in jail. Seeing the direction he was heading in, one of his uncles suggested that he sign up for the Marine Corps. When he first joined the Marines, the disciplined lifestyle helped him greatly. However, he ended up indulging in drug use when he was off duty and away from that style of living. This almost led to him being dismissed.

Kersi Khambatta

Kersi Khambatta is an Indian producer and director and script writer. Kersi is best known for his collaboration with director Homi Adajania for movies like Being Cyrus and Finding Fanny. Khambatta always wanted a career in writing. He was not so good as a student, but he believed in his dreams. However, the necessity of having to earn at a young age, he had to take a trans-steamer in Hong Kong at the age 19, right after finishing his HSC exams. His first book, the Village of Pointless Conversations, was out in early 2016. The novel is an extension of the script that enhanced Finding Fanny. Homi always desired to tell a story of the twist of a postman getting a letter. At that point, he was working on a lightly autobiographical book, which he abandoned because it was more of a challenge for him. He always wished of the writing about how mad a character can go, how twist and turns can be a person witness in a day. He again started working on the novel, and it took him nine months to draft and three years to decrease that verbal discharge so that it can be clearly understood and read by the audience. Adajania and Khambatta first met on a diving tour at Lakshadweep in 1997. Finding a related sensibility, they colluded on Being Cyrus, based on a small story penned by Khambatta. Together, they brought a unique keenness to Hindi movies, which the fraternity now relates to making a place for opposing but strong viewpoints. Both now consider the industry their primary profession - Khambatta has shifted to Bandra in Mumbai to be closer to his assignments. His next writing is being presented by Balaji, doing it as commercial as it comes. After the Merchant Navy, he killed seven years watching after private ships. He began learning karate below Pervez Mistry. On the side, he would pen anything he could — travel and adventure stories, celebrity interviews, and foreign assignments. The small story of Being Cyrus was lying on his computer until Homi saw it in 2003. There was no original intention of going into scripting for movies by him. It happened all of a sudden. Their partnership went well, and the two proceeded on to work on the movie Finding Fanny and the controversial one-and-half minute short movie on women empowerment created for Vogue magazine. Besides diving and storytelling, the two are also connected by the love to shock people. They like to try with pushing the box a little bit, seeing how enough we can get away with. The whole proposition of Being Cyrus — hitting old people is not an experimented subject or theme in most films. He actively disassociates himself from the Brand Bawa. He explains that he is not a spokesperson of the Parsis. With Being Cyrus, he buried the machetes about the community and took it out. While growing up, he was an Amitabh Bachchan follower and now follows a curated choice of Hindi movies like Piku, Titli, and Queen. With his book The Village of Pointless Conversations, he was back into writing. The book is set in a small village of Goa and based on the story of an old postman Ferdie who goes on a road trip with his other friends to find his love interest Fanny whom he could not confess his love during their young times.
