“I am a big believer of selling dreams. Everything comes at a price. Except for the emotions that parents and children share, everything is for sale.

“Duplicate was a great experience. But then, I was not too sure whether I could play a double role properly, because I do not consider myself as a complete actor like Amitabh Bachchan, Dilip Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar or Kamal Haasan. However, Mahesh Bhatt convinced me that I could,”
