From 1989, he had been associated with Nadira Babbar’s theatre troupe Ekjut, and the 5 years that he spent with them seems to have stood him in good stead. Not only did he bag several awards, but also obtained for him several positive references to enable him bag a role in the 1990 TV serial “Tara” opposite Ratna Pathak. Since then he seems to have had a prolific run, having acted in more than 12 popular TV serials across most of the major channels, with some like “Reporter” running for over 100 episodes.
