- In an interview, Santosh Sobhan talked about his family and said that he was the only degree holder in his family; he pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Drama and Theatre at Christ University, Bengaluru. According to Santosh, none of his family members, including his father, mother, brother, and uncle have completed their graduation. Santosh said,
It’s so funny but I have to tell you that I was the first degree holder in our family – none of us including my mom, dad, brother, uncle have graduated. We knew we’ll be part of the industry in some form. I still don’t consider myself a hero. Neither of us thought we would need a backup. I completed my academics because mom wanted at least one-degree holder in the house (laughs). Both of us brothers were not good at anything else. We didn’t have a safety net and we gave it all when we entered the industry.” OTT play
