At the age of 12 years, I started working in this industry and I consider myself a lucky child artist who has received a lot of love from this industry. In this industry, people have few godfathers, but I want to thank 3 people from the industry who has helped to become what I am today."
"First is my guru, Saroj Khan who has given me my first break at the age of 16 as an assistant. Eventually, I got my second break when Ram Gopal Verma approached to choreograph his movie Rangeela. At the age 21, nobody gives such a huge responsibility but Ram Gopal Verma made me a Choreographer. And Third is my brother Sajid Nadiadwala who made me believe that I have the talent and determination to achieve my dream. I am thankful to each and everyone who has supported me throughout my journey," he concluded.
