About me

EARLY YEARS

In 2007 I became First Class First in my class of Graduation.
In 2005 I joined Uhinee Kolkata for formal theatre training, under the able guidance of Adrija Dasgupta, a Fellow Pass-out from National School of Drama. I learnt the basics of theatre under her mentorship. I acted in various theater productions that she directed, between 2005-2010.

In 2008 I got the overwhelming opportunity to act in the workshop based theatre
production ‘Jhunki’ (The Risk) conducted by the renowned Mr. Steve Clorfiene, student of Yergi Grotowski.
It was a collaboration of American Council and Rabindra Bharati University.

GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIP

I received the Young Artist Scholarship, 2009 from Cultural Ministry of the Government of India.

My Paper was on Physical Theatre.

My Guide : Siddhartha Chakraborty (NSD)
Under this program I received a 2 Years’ Fellowship.

In the Year 2010 I Went to Baro Urma Vilage (Purulia – West Bengal) To get a brief experience of CHHAU which is an Ancient Folk Dance Of Bengal.

MINERVA REPERTOIRE & BEYOND

In 2010 I was selected by some of the eminent theatre personalities to work as a whole time professional actor at MINERVA, the first State Repertoire in West Bengal.

I acted in 3 eminent productions under Minerva Repertoire between 2010 to January 2013.

After I resigned from Minerva Repertoire in January 2013, I started my career as a professional freelance theatre actor.

Since then, till date, I have regularly been in the professional theatre practice, and have worked with various eminent theatre directors.
