"I always wanted to be an actor. It's a huge responsibility to be an actor as you become a public figure. That's why I took a little long to come here (in the film industry) and prepared myself before I joined the industry," Bilal, the grandson of legendary filmmaker Kamaal Amrohi, said here.
The actor says he is very close to superstar Salman Khan's family, and if there's one thing that he has learned from Salman, it is the virtue of honesty.
"Salman told me to be myself and be honest. That's one of the most important thing I have learnt form him. Salman and his family fulfilled my dream to be an actor. I am very close to his family. His charisma and aura is on a different level," he added.
Bilal admits he was nervous facing the camera.
