The actor has spent most of his childhood in Delhi and did not have any big guns in Mumbai’s film fraternity except his uncles Boney and Anil Kapoor. After class 12, he joined a film school in US and it was then when he seriously took cinema as a career.
When asked if he got any help from Anil and Boney to get his first break, he said “Not at all. That's not the way the family thinks. That's not the way I wanted it.”
He auditioned for two years in Mumbai, just like any other newcomer. He got his satisfaction of being ‘self-made’ accomplished when he finally got ‘Fugly’.
“I'm lucky to come into the film industry at a time when new talent is being welcomed. So many new actors are coming in. I couldn't have chosen a better time,” said Mohit.
Choosing New York for study helped him to overcome his shyness and open up his personality he said. He came back and acted in a few short films including one from Karan Johar’s Dharma Production.
Talking about his cousins he said, “All of us Sonam, Arjun, Harshvardhan and I have distinct personalities. The roles that Arjun is doing right now can't be done by anyone else. In any case, I'm closer to Arjun's age than Harshvardhan's. But I'm so happy, there are so many of us.”
