What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about my wife, acting, reading and dancing.
How important to you is spirituality, your family, and your professional identity?
I think spirituality is the base of all things. Spirituality helps you to balance your mind and if your mind is balanced, then you have a very good relation with your family and friends. Also, a balanced mind helps you to take proper decisions in professional life also. All three are actually inter-related. I can say that spirituality is the root, family is the ground and all other things including profession are the fruits.
So how do you work on your passions?
Whatever I do I give it my 100 percent whether its is celebrating my anniversary, rehearsing for a song or even working on a big project. And when you give 100 percent to something, that means you are passionate. Passion is not only about love, it is about everything and anything you do.
In this hectic life when you hardly get time for yourself, what helps you to keep going?
I meditate a lot; at least I give half an hour to myself and I believe in the saying 'Keep Walking'. Good times or bad times, we have to keep walking ahead. Meditation keeps the mind relaxed, as mind can be our best friend as well as biggest enemy also.
What do you do in your leisure time?
I love to watch movies with my wife. She is a Censor Board, so I prefer watching movies with her (grins)..
What's your idea of relaxation?
What are your hobbies?
I like dancing a lot and the best part of this profession is that we can fulfill all our hobbies - I can dance, horse ride, act etc...
What are your priorities in life?
I think priorities in life changes according to the situation you are in. Right now my priority in life is my work. When I become a father time my priorities will change.
What do you consider your biggest stress buster?
There are lot of things, starting from listening to good music to spending time with wife and friends. I think people should learn from children and live for the moment. I learn a lot from my niece.
Who is your biggest energy booster?

The trainer of Shahid Kapoor is awesome and when I used the see his intensity, it inspired me a lot. I even told Shahid that I am taking his trainer to be mine..
