“My parents are first-generation immigrants, which means, formal education is a must, so I was skeptical about studying Drama as an undergrad. Although I loved acting, I thought of it as a hobby and studied Law instead. I performed on stage in a lot of theatre plays, watched a lot of films, and read articles on filmmaking.”
