I started my career as an actor and did a number of movies as a leading man.. many of them didnt even see the light of day and the ones that did, failed miserably. Then i wrote a story called Aryan and made a shift to direction. That movie didnt succeed either.. i went back to work and made another movie which many thought would barely make a mark...On the 28 th of August 2008, exactly 10 yrs ago, that movie, #rockon !! premiered and went on to succeed like no other that year and won 2 national awards.. i had finally got my head out of the water and could breathe.. Today, exactly 10 yrs later to mark a #decade , my wife and I have been blessed with a baby boy. His mother is the strongest and most secure person i know. She came into my life cause a higher power willed it so and no one could have given me a better gift to mark this momentous day..The ease with which our son has entered this world carried the same confidence his mother has.. like a lion.. infact he is a 1st amongst lions. His mother and i have decided to call him.. #Shamsher #jaibholenath 🙏🙏
