Hello, followers! I hope you like my latest entry — this one is packed with some great pictures and some brilliant behind-the-scenes videos ;-)

Right, if my memory serves me correctly, I was supposed to talk about a shoot that I did in Amritsar and another in Pune, where I almost met with a fatal accident. The Amritsar shoot was for a new travel show that I am doing — but, sorry folks, I’m not allowed to show any videos from it until the episode has been aired. It’s a fantastic project, one which gives me the opportunity to travel across India. For instance, I was in Benaras a couple of months back shooting for another episode. Here, check out some pics…

With regards to Pune, I was there shooting for another car commercial! Yep, not content on doing one ad for Renault and another for Chevrolet, the Gods above have deemed it necessary that I do another one, for Renault. Below you can check out the vlog and the actual ad also, which I hope you like.

If you have been following my tweets, you’d know that I was in South Africa recently shooting for a commercial. That was a very last minute deal but suffice to say, I had an amazing time! Check out the pictures and vlog below.

And oh, I’ve got some good news to share… I have started rehearsals for another stage production. This one’s a musical, and due to those pesky fine prints on the contract I’m not allowed to say anything about it. But what I can tell you is that it is going to be HUGE! The first shows are in July in Mumbai and I am confident that it will lead to more shows around the country and possibly even abroad! So, watch this space ;-)

That’s all for today, folks. Spread the blog (and love) people and if you want any advice about coming to Mumbai and having a crack at this acting malarkey, please feel free to contact me.

Until next time…
