In three months of rehearsals and five performances, Ram realized that acting is something which he should take up and even pursue in future.
He Moved to Delhi to Do Theatre
After realizing the fact that he can act and should continue acting, he then moved from Nainital to Delhi. Here in Delhi he did several plays, but mostly English plays.
