You played Kabir in Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani and are currently playing Aniket in " Ek Doosre Se Karte Hai Pyaar Hum' on Star Plus. How difficult was the switch?
For an actor, it's hard to play different characters. I played a 20 year old boy in PKYEK and now a 24 years old guy. I love playing different characters and roles and it is a good experience.
You are a married man, what does your wife think of your female fan following?
We both are mature enough to understand that it is part of the profession - So it's all cool, but I do have a lot male following also (laughs!).
What's your favorite movie of all time and why?
I love Maine Pyaar Kiya as Salman Khan is my favourite actor.I still love the movie.
How many hours a week do you spend watching TV?
I hardly get time. I have morning shifts- So, I get up early in the morning and get home late. I'm so tired so I just grap some dinner and go to sleep.
Has a television show ever moved you to tears?
Not really. I am part of TV and I know how it is behind camera. There are certain parts that have touched me but I dont like to cry. While shooting I can get emotional sometimes, like I had this scene where my onscreen brother and sister hug me and I don't have a brother or sister otherwise so it was really touching. I always say that I wish I had siblings. Being part of shooting such scenes sometimes you get emotional but after watching on TV, it's like yah I know what I did.
What was your favorite book as a child and why?
I have not read many books but I loved reading comics. I read a book on a friend's recommendation "The Secret" - it was a good book. I dont have a selection of books or writers.
Are you a good dancer?
I think I'm a good dancer but I would say I am a copycat. I personally don't follow steps, but enjoy dancing.
When on a date, do you think the guy should pay or not?
In today's time there is no discrimination between a girl or a guy. Everyone earns, and just because you are a guy doesn't mean you have to pay, especially if your date wants to pay for her. I would pay but if my date says that she wants to pay for herself then I won't disagree and hurt her feelings.
