Talking to the IANS, Hussain said, "I really look up to Ranbir (Kapoor) because the kind of films he has been doing, the kind of performance he has been giving, you are really like, If you have to do films and give performance, then it has to be like the performances that he (Ranbir) has been giving."
Hussain was also all praise for Ranbir. According to him, the Kapoor lad is "absolutely brilliant." "He is not too old in the film industry, but he has been playing different, but good characters. So I really look up to him," he added.
Talking about his film Shree, Hussain said, "As far as I know, I thought my first film might be a romantic-comedy, but it's not that actually... When I was told about the story (of Shree), I said, 'Why not? If the story is good, then go ahead with it. And if the people will like it, may be I will get to do some rom-com further."
