In this video, a part of the web-series ‘Connect Conversations’, he shares his experiences and stories, not just about about being an openly gay actor, but also about his childhood, bullying in school, first love, and falling in love with a guy who couldn’t accept that he was in love right back, and the resulting heartbreak.

His story, with its ups and downs, and funny and poignant moments will bring a smile to your face and evoke a sense of déjà vu. You can watch it here in Marathi with English subtitles:
