The actor also said that "there is nothing like I enjoy working more in Bollywood or Hollywood", and only let work take him to different places and film industries.
"This is my country and I became actor for here. When I got a chance to work in West it is with the director I never thought I would ever work with. For me, both the industries are important. I am even working in European industry. I am an actor, wherever I will find interesting work, I will do," he said.
