If not an actor you would have been...
Doing something regarding fitness maybe. Not just physical fitness but mental too.
One dance form you want to learn.
In all weddings, I have noticed that there is always a drunken guy who dances like nobody’s business. He is completely out of rhythm but the joy and masti he exudes is fabulous.

The best thing about being an actor.
It truly challenges every single sense. To make other people feel significant, you have to fill yourself with significance too. If you are down and low and don’t know how to harness your power and rise, you will not be able to interpret a scene.
Is being a star kid an advantage?
Nothing is an advantage and nothing is a disadvantage. It is what you do in a particular situation that creates you.
How firmly do you believe in this: Zindagi na milegi dobara...
Very firmly. For me ‘zindagi na milegi dobara’ is all about exploring facets of your character, your mindset, your spirit and seeing where it leads you. Life can be such a fantastic adventure if you just don’t allow your mind to hold you back.
What is your style sense like?
I have people to style me, I just have to feel comfortable. So my style sense is to be easy in whatever you wear or whoever you are.
Are you a doting father or a strict one?
A father needs to help in every aspect of a child’s growth. Where you need love, you also need discipline. I will choose doting first if I have a choice, though.
One thing nobody knows about you.
I don’t have a good memory for names. But I will always remember the emotion that goes with a face. So, I will know exactly how I have to talk or behave with a particular person.
What sports do you like?
I am doing a lot of gymnastics with my sons. My movies have required me to indulge in some sport or the other.
The last line of your autobiography would read...
I think I have a long time to think about that.
