He was among the top 10 finalists on Indian Idol 3 and attained 5th place in the competition with public votes. He bagged a contract with Sony Music India and went on to record an album Tu To Na Aayi which had compositions by music directors Leslie Lewis & Amit Trivedi. The musical sojourn resulted in Live performances across the globe, a jet-setting journey that continues to this day.

He went on to don the role of sports presenter in the second season of the Indian Premier League in South Africa. He has acted in a yet unreleased film by Pritish Nandy Communications called The Seventeens. His big ticket to the Indian film industry however, was his debut film Badmaash Company under Yash Raj Films, one of the biggest and most reputable film production houses in the country. He played the character of Zing, a happy-go-lucky college passout who along with his friends Karan (played by Shahid Kapoor), Chandu (Vir Das) and Bulbul (Anushka Sharma) dreams big and believes in doing all the wrong things the right way. The growth of his character from a fun loving boy to an out-of-control alcoholic to a sobered down, mature youngster was well appreciated. He participated & emerged winner in the Indian avatar of Dancing with the Stars called Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Season 4 on Sony Entertainment Television in Mar 2011.
