1) Which is your favourite sport to keep yourself fit?
I am a great lover of cricket.
2) Who do you like in cricket? Sachin Tendulkar or some other prominent cricketer?
Look, Sachin Tendulkar is God, no comments on him. After that I like Yuvraj. How he fought during the cancer phase proves that he is a fighter. It is not easy to do and that is why I like him because mentally you need a lot of balance, lot of strength and sport is something for which you need a lot of stamina. In such condition, it’s very tough to rebuild yourself. So for me he is a real fighter.
3) Do you play Cricket?
Yes. We play on the sets sometimes, to just relax and feel normal.
4) Did you always want to be an actor?
No. I wanted to be a cricketer.
5) So if not an actor then you would have been a cricketer?
Yes. Of course. Because in the last ten years cricket has changed a lot. There is twenty-twenty and there are a lot of options and new guys are coming in the sport.When I was a kid there were no such options. If not an actor I would be a cricketer but I think I am not a good cricketer. I am more of a cricket fan.
