Aakash shares on how did the idea of becoming an actor come to him. He says, “It started as an excuse to bunk classes in school when I started writing and performing on stage till I made the decision to shift to Mumbai to actually learn the craft. The thing that I found most fascinating about acting was to be able to be someone else and tell a story.”
Talking more on his Bollywood debut Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (PPDKP), he says, “It was a long process which started with a one on one interview with our casting director Kavish Sinha followed by a couple of screen tests till I finally got selected.”
Sharing his journey ahead, Aakash says, “I’d love to see myself working on good scripts and playing good characters, I think it’s too early to pick a name, would love to work with all of them if given a chance. My favourites being Vishal Bharadwaj, Shoojit Sircar, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Nikhil Advani, it’s a never-ending list.“
