Tell us about your stint in acting?
I approached producers like Mahesh Bhatt for a break. At that time, Mohit Suri was an assistant director and I asked him to take me in his movies. Later, Mohit gave me a chance in ‘Woh Lamhe’.
How was your experience working with Mahesh Bhatt?
It was amazing. The world knows how good his work is, and how performance-oriented his movies are. I was fortunate to work under his guidance.
How do you select your roles?
I am still trying to make a place in the industry so I am not very choosy. But I look something that interests and excites me.
Any dream role you wish to do?
Nothing specifically. I want to be a part of every film and every character.
According to you, which was your best performance and why?
Choosing one role out of all wouldn't do justice to the others. People may like me in a particular role, which may not be my personal favourite. I would rather leave this for my audience to decide. The best is yet to come after all.
Tell us about your role and co-actors in ‘Mastizaade’?
The character I played is Desh Premee Singh, who is engaged to Lily Lele played by Sunny Leone. One part of the story is that Aditya Chothia (Vir Das) and I try to gain her attention. Working with Sunny Leone was a dream come true! She is very professional and down-to-earth. Vir is an impeccable person; I learnt much from him. Tushar Kapoor is a very chilled out person. We all had a great time on the sets.
