Speaking to a leading daily, he has stated, “When Ravi told me about it, I was initially very skeptical. I felt I wouldn"t be comfortable running amidst thousands of people, with most staring at me, and worse still, with mobile phones everywhere! So, I discussed coming up with an alternative plan with Ravi. Later, I thought, why not? If it lends authenticity to my character, I wanted to attempt it." Recently, he had a back injury while shooting a fight sequence and he is still under bed rest.
