My inspiration is Dev Patel. Not many Indians have been able to break the stereotype and succeed in the American Film Industry, and that keeps me going. He and many other like him are slowly breaking the stereotype.
We all make mistakes Aryaan; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Once, I worked hard for this audition and my competitor for the auditions was a close friend. I got the role, and I wish I would have talked to him more.

I have to make sure I am prepared on set. Wether it is acting or singing. I have to be prepared and be on my best behavior.
Please tell us Aryaan, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I had to prepare a lot when trying to get an agent. I got professional headsets and made reels. Did a lot of small gigs to create my resume and I also had to perfect my craft.
Aryaan, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I missed a good amount of school during some commercial shoot but I persuaded my teachers and my principal to allow me to makeup work, and it was very hard because I go to a very strict high school.
