How was the experience of Working With Nani? What is the one thing your admire about him the most?
I was quite excited when I learnt that I would be paired opposite Nani in Jersey. He is a wonderful actor and has a great deal of versatility. While working with him I realised that he is a dedicated performer who has a good understanding of the technical aspects of the craft. I wish I had such understanding of the technical aspects.
What qualities do you look for in a role before giving the nod to it?
My character in Jersey is a strong one and has a good graph. In general, I look for strong characters as I feel that in my world I am the hero.
Jersey has a cricket backdrop. Do you follow the sport? Who is your favourite cricketer?
I used to follow cricket in its pure form. However, I do not follow IPL too much especially as my team Royal Challengers Bangalore is out of from. My favourite cricketer of all-time is Rahul Dravid.
How do you deal with setbacks?
I am a very positive person and have realistic expectations from just about everything which helps big time.
What has been learning on the professional front?
The one thing that I have realised is that stardom is temporary. People might celebrate you today but they might forget you soon. One should not let stardom go into one's head. I know that today my bank balance is a bit better and I have more followers but at the end of the day, I am still the same person especially when I am with my family.
How do you prefer spending your free time?
When I am not working, I put my work phone on silent and enjoy being at home. I love spending time with my family as I am a family person. Moreover, I love going on vacations whenever possible.
On a parting note, do you follow Game Of Thrones?
I am a big Game Of Thrones fans and love the female characters I am also fond of Tyrion as hew is like a dark horse.
