Brief information: Dona is a hard working and diligent artist. He made his debut in the film called "Sandya". Unlike others his tales is somewhat different. According to him acting was once an unseen dream and he never expected to become an actor. It was as if fortune guided his hand. He was approached by a gym owner, where he used to work out, for his production (Sandya).
Since then his whole course of life was changed and gradually began to fall in love with the Film World that he now has started taking acting lessons.
He and some of his colleague is setting up a routine acting class with the help of Sushma, an assistant working at the Chorus Repertory Theater (a theater founded by Renowned Playwright and Theater Director Ratan Thiyam).

He recalled that his debut film was the toughest he had so far experienced while filming.

However he expressed extreme happiness for the support extended by his family.
Working with low profile company was another sweating story said Dona. One has to get involved and help in every shortcoming besides adjusting with it.
At the same time, shooting could be fun he said. Learning and sharing from senior artist is exciting. When it comes to acting like most new comers he too revealed that emotional role is challenging.
