In 2014, he debuted in the film Little Little under the direction of Vaibhav Palhade as a Cinematographer and didn’t look back since.
Akshay completed his education and has a degree of Civil Engineering. But he was always intrigued by the magic of the camera and its enchanted world. He was fascinated to know how this gadget could give wings to his imagination and creativity.
