“Pehle main bohot mota bohot pareshan tha…. No no this is not one of those posts. Just putting it out there that I love every chapter of my life. Those days & even now, I have always been myself at every step of the way. I cherish every bit of it. I’m a work in progress like anyone & everyone else.

I understand the meaning of that now more than ever and I’m loving that I’m working towards bettering myself… every damn day,” the actor wrote while sharing a picture of himself on Instagram recently.
