During festive seasons, he used to play the role of a girl in his village's natak, which was appreciated by the villagers and ultimately prompted him to make a career out of acting.[7] He moved to Patna after high school where he studied in Institute of Hotel Management, Hajipur. He did theatre and was active in college politics.[8] Out of fear of failure in acting he also worked briefly for a Five Star hotel in Patna.

His audition for film went on for approximately eight hours.[12][13] In 2008, he acted in the Bahubali TV series, and later in Powder on Sony TV. In his early career, he played mostly negative roles and became synonymous with gangster characters.[14][15] Later, he played a variety of roles and won critical appraisal for the same.[16] His first film as a lead actor was the 2017 film Gurgaon.[17] His 2017 film Newton was India's official entry for the Academy Award in best foreign film category.[18]
