“I enjoy acting. I have no inhibitions as an actor. Modeling and acting are completely different. I’m learning and growing as an actor every day. ”
“I think I have let myself go. I have opened up and let my hair down gradually. So the change is evident, both in my personal as well as professional life,”
“Inspired living to me is self-actualization…it is beyond the physiological needs of people. I would like to believe that I lead an inspired life. But I guess with the kind of lifestyle I lead, it’s a little far beyond for me to achieve. But every day, I am trying to attain it.”
“I’ve this terrible habit of jumping into the middle of fans. I get too excited. I’ve to curb that tendency. I know it’s too dangerous. But I feel the fans will feel cheated if I distance myself.”
“Fashion to me is just being comfortable in what you are wearing. I think that’s the primary aim of fashion. For me, fashion is being comfortable in your own skin, own clothes. Create an impression for your self rather than for people.”
