I am not an outgoing person. I am a very aloof person who gives a lot to his work. It's very difficult to have a personal life with this kind of mindset.
I think stardom means a big responsibility that one has to shoulder.
As I grew older, I realised that Bruce Lee was an actor first and a martial artist second. If he wasn't a convincing actor and didn't have the emotion in his eyes before delivering a kick or a punch, it wouldn't have made that much of an impact.
Every child in every country in every small town should know who I am. There are a handful of people who have achieved that, and two of them are my idols Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee. I'd like to get to that level someday and touch as many lives as I can.
Whenever I meet children's parents, they complain that the kids don't sleep until they listen to my whistle baja song! My songs have captivated the kids.
Rather than running on the treadmill, which can become quite boring, I prefer to work on my dance routine. Besides being a good form of cardiovascular exercise, it is also a form of escape for me, as I never realise how much time has flown by when I am dancing.
I don't eat out much. I eat mostly home food and no carbs after 5 P.M. You are what you eat, and Sunday used to be my cheat day, when I could eat chocolate; but there are no cheats to a good body. Now, I don't give in.
I can stand up for what I believe in. I don't take the word 'rebel' in a negative connotation.
There are so many talented actors in my contemporaries and my seniors... I seek inspiration from each one of them.
I have had a lot of crushes but have never had the courage to go up to a girl and say what I feel. I am scared of rejection.
After working for a couple of years, I have realised how much hard work it takes to become an actor, and my father has gone through it all these years. It's draining, both physically and mentally, but he makes it look so effortless.
As for Aamir Khan, he keeps raising the standard with every film. For an artist like me or a newcomer like me, we can only look up to that and dream, 'When will that be us someday?' There's so much to learn from him. He is the encyclopedia of acting.
I would just urge the youth today to indulge in some sort of physical activity on a regular basis. A holistic approach is essential, and that also means you need to stay happy and positive.
I am who I am. I am not very complicated. I am simple and an introvert.
Growing up, my inspirations were Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, all these martial arts legends. I wanted to express my talent on screen in a certain way. I felt that it made me a little different.
Stuntmen don't have a lavish life. They are such hard working people, but not respected enough. And I don't like that. If I become something in my life, I want to give them a better life, take them to a higher level.
Hrithik Roshan is my idol both onscreen as well as off screen. I wish that I could become just 50 percent like him.
I never liked going to school and would sham and play football. I played in the centre forward position. If ever given a choice, I would love to represent Barcelona.
Since childhood, I have been a fan of Spider Man because, according to me, he has the maximum humanity; he is very human, very mortal. So he even gets hurt. He has a poor background, but when he wears the costume, he forgets all of that, all the pressures of the society on him.
Spiderman is the underdog, and I love underdogs.
