    On How He Was Told By People That He Would Never Become A Hero

    Anil revealed, "For me, I just concentrated on hard work. i was confident no doubt. Andar se I had never had any doubts about myself.

    "I think they would be the best people to answer this question. I wouldn't know how they think. But yes, there are fab scripts which one should be a part of.

I, for one, had no issues working in films which had any other hero with me."
