“I’m just taking scripts that sound good to me. If tomorrow I get a good script that has the same kind of character, I will do it. if I feel I will have fun doing the role, I will do it.” [speaking about the way he chooses movies]
“I like doing comedy and I know people enjoy watching me doing comedy. So I have no problem doing it. In fact, I have to do a comedy after two or three serious movies. It’s like a vacation for me.”
“I did some horrible films before but I don’t have any regrets. It’s a process of learning. Before, I would listen to the script and picturise the story in my head. And it would look good to me. But I wasn’t in a position to ask the director what his vision was like. The director had his own vision of the movie and it sucked!” [about his early experiences in the industry]
“I love choreography, and have been asked to do it in every film. I will do it, but only if I’m dancing. I won’t be comfortable doing it for someone else.”
“Well, frankly speaking, I am not dying to do one. I still consider myself as a struggling actor and not a star. I am not confident about taking the whole responsibility of the film on myself.”
