Soon after, he got involved with theatre and worked as a theatre artist and did plays with theatre groups like Naseeruddin Shah's 'Motley' and Manav Kaul's 'Aranya.'  His brother Sunny Kaushal has worked as an assistant director in films like 'My Friend Pinto' and 'Gunday.'  His father came to Mumbai in 1978, and after years of struggle and hard work, he became a famous action director in Bollywood as well as Hollywood.  Later, he learned acting skills from the famous 'Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute' in Mumbai.  A genre of movie that he wants to do is ' sports drama' and he never wants to do a 'Sex comedy.'
