Besides his father, the actor is close to his elder sister. He had told an entertainment portal, "Tai (elder sister) has had a huge influence on me. She has taught me to be practical and not live in an ivory tower. She is blunt and honest. There have been times when she told me that I have done a bad job, that too, on my face. She is my reality check and a grounding factor. She always tells me to carve my way out if I want something. Also, if things don't work out, she pushes me to move on."
