But according to him, his only passion is content creation on YouTube. In an interview with a leading daily, Carry revealed, “MayDay isn’t my full-fledged debut. It’s more like an extension of what I do. I dedicate 10 hours a day for content creation and I’d like to consider that as my passion and calling, acting and music for me is a medium where I can showcase my art to a more varied audience. For me, personally, my authentic acting innings will happen when I secure an opportunity to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the art. Everything else I do right now I consider as a special appearance.”
