What according to you works, acting skills or acting with a big production house?
Both I guess, it depends on what I am working on. There are times when you come across some fabulous roles which you always wanted to do but there may not be bigger names involved in it. And then, there are these big banners making a film which offers you insignificant role but you are certain that you will be presented in a very good manner. And your hardwork wouldn"t go waste. I think lot of things count.
If Yash Raj Productions offers you a film and you don"t like the script. What would be your decision?
I guess I have been ardent Yash Raj fan since many years. And, always want to be a part of their film. Though there are very less chances of my not liking the script. However, if that happens, I would still go ahead and do that film.
You have explored your acting skills in all sorts of genres. Which genre do you feel can give your career a new dimension where you are most comfortable?
The reason why have been exploring genres because I don"t want to restrict my career nor let it get monotonous. I don"t think I can pin point a particular kind of role or genre I enjoyed the most. I love all of them. But if I were to do the same thing again and again, I would get bored. It"s not about experimenting but doing something different every time.
Have you signed any deals with any production house?
I do have a three film contract with Subhash Ghai (Mukta Arts) which I had signed during Good Boy Bad Boy. That"s the only deal.
Have you signed any new project?
I have signed an action film which is yet to be titled; it will be directed by a new director, Hadi Abrar. It"s not a part of mainstream cinema; something which will give a swing to my career. And I am in the process of signing some films but I don"t think it"s the right time to talk about it. I am very superstitious about these things and I"d rather wait for the right time for now I only want to concentrate on Dhol.
What is your take on exposing in the films?
I have no take on it...I guess (pauses) I have no take on it actually
When is Speed going to release?
I have no clue (laughs) seriously I really have no clue. We have been shooting for it from a very long time now. But I am great expectations from that film because it"s taken a long time to complete it. I am longing for the day of its release.
You have switched over to brand endorsements. Which product are you endorsing?
Gitanjali jewelry, the D"damas group.
How did this happen?
They had kept a track of my career, from the beginning. I guess they thought I fit the bill perfectly and so they approached me with this offer. Moreover, I have a great inclination towards jewelry; hence this offer fascinated me. I guess being an ambassador of jewelry brand; will only add to my personality.
