Bonding with Akki

Akshay Kumar is someone I have loved throughout my life. Let me tell you that it's impossible not to like him. He's funny, charming and totally down-to-earth. Stars like Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan have that aura of stardom around them, and so does Akshay. However, after you interact with Akshay for more than five minutes, you feel like you are talking to a friend.

Chocolate boy and beyond

I have never considered myself cute. So, I have never tried to cash in on my chocolate-boy image. While choosing films, I opt for ones that are entertaining and engaging for the audience. As an actor, my idea is to blend in with the film in entirety. In Delhi Belly, all the three guys had equal screen space and importance in the story. I want my fans to remember my character and not me. Once I achieve that, I feel like I have been successful in my endeavour.

Illusion of competition

There can't be any competition amongst actors. Even if my competitor's film flops, I can't say that my film is going to be a hit. Someone else's failure doesn't guarantee my success.

No personal time

The biggest tragedy of my life has been the fact that I haven't been able to get a week off since past 12 months. I am not able to take out time for Avantika (his wife) the way I want to. In fact, I have no personal life at all. However, I know that this is work and want to give it my best.
