What are you passionate about?
I am very passionate about my work. There is nothing else that excites me more than acting.
In this hectic life when you hardly get time for yourself, what helps you to keep going?
It is truly a hectic life we have to lead with the rigorous shooting schedule, but seeing my friends, family, my wife and my dog keeps me going even in the most hectic hours of my life.
What's your idea of relaxation?
My mantra of relaxation is watching movies with my friends. I love playing the guitar too. It has a very soothing effect on me.
If given a choice to make a career out of your hobby or passion, what would you choose?
I would definitely choose my passion. A hobby is something that I like to do. And I have actually made a career with my passion.
What would you do to relax after a hard day's shooting schedule?
The best way for me to unwind after a day of hard work is to spend quality time with my friends and family.
Do nutrition and exercise contribute to your stress or help you manage it?
They help me to manage it. I believe that you can get rid of all your pent-up frustrations through work-outs. In fact I make sure that I work out at least 3 to 4 times a week. I am not a very diet conscious person though.
What are your priorities in your life?
My family and my work.
How important is spirituality, your family and your professional identity to you? On a scale of 1 to 10, how do rate yourself on the three?
They all are important to me. When it comes to spirituality I would rate myself a 6 on 10. With my family and professional identity i would say I am a 9 on 10, although I am striving towards rating myself as a 10 on 10 in the two.
