Speaking from the location David said, "I don't know why everyone is so eager to see me give up doing what I am best at doing. I've no intentions of falling ill."

David says that after his health scare last year when he collapsed during an event organized by Shashi Ranjan, health is a priority for him.

"I am looking after myself. There is no point in killing myself over the workload. There was a time when I was shooting two films on adjacent sets and sometimes an average of three films a year. Now I've nothing to prove. Let my sons do all the work. That doesn’t mean I am planning to retire," Dhawan said.

Reacting to reports that his elder son Rohit had taken over the direction of "Main Tera Hero", which stars his younger son Varun, David said, "Rohit is here to meet his father and brother. We are a family. And if I need him to direct for me, I'd happily ask him. Right now I am hale and hearty and I am on location in between shots as we talk."

"I know an ailing David Dhawan makes far better news than a healthy one. But sorry to disappoint," he added.
