Birthday: February 6
Sun Sign: Aquarius
Place of Birth: Delhi
High point of your life: Working with Amitabh Bachchan in Pink
Low point in life: I don’t understand low points. I pick myself up and get going, otherwise people feel haye bechara. You’ve just got to get up and move on.
Currently I am: Wrapped up 24 season 2, and am working on Gauri Shinde’s next
A situation in your life, that you’d describe as emotional atyachaar.
Every time my mom calls me to Delhi. A mother emotionally blackmailing her son is the biggest emotional atyachaar.
We’ve hardly seen you onscreen...
Yeah, even I’ve not seen myself. But you can either do lots of things and not be known, or do a few things and be known for them. I like the latter.
If you had to swap lives with a Khan, who would it be?
All three! I want the bhaigiri of Salman, the articulate and charming nature of Shah Rukh and the passion of Aamir.
You worked with Amitabh Bachchan recently in Pink. What did you learn?
Just the fact that he knows I exist, is the biggest high. He is the industry and the industry is him.
Your favourite TV show.
Nothing can beat Friends.
Your father, Bishan Singh Bedi, was a well-known cricketer. One advice of his that has helped you in Bollywood?
He told me to follow my dreams. My passion was always cinema.
A woman who has bowled you over.
Waheeda Rehman. I’ve never seen anyone so elegant and beautiful. The way she carries herself is amazing. She’s just the perfect woman. I’m an old soul that way.
Yuvraj Singh is your childhood friend. Your craziest memory together.
He used to break dance and pop lock to Prabhudeva songs as a kid. At a camp in Chail, he used to hit these big sixes and the ball, which cost `350 then, would go out of the stadium and down the hill. No idea how many balls he wasted! So my father set a rule: if he hits a six, he must run six rounds so he tires out.
American hotelier Vikram Chatwal is your cousin. Would you date his one-time girlfriend Lindsay Lohan?
I wouldn’t. She doesn’t do it for me. But his current girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen (model) is the one for me. He’s going to get her initials tattooed too, I hear.
A myth about six-pack abs.
That they get you laid. Your charm, personality, the way you talk to the opposite sex, does.
Can you cook to save your life?
I can cook to charm any girl’s life. Is anybody listening?
What is the most embarrassing moment of your life?
When Virat Kohli won an award and said we should celebrate with an after-party in a hotel. I told him I’ll join later since I was busy charming a girl. I landed up going to another hotel and knocking on somebody else’s door. When Yuvi called to ask me where I was, I told him I was outside the room but there was some old man who wasn’t letting me in. Then we realised something was wrong.
One thing about Anil Kapoor that cracks you up.
He’s the most hilarious man I’ve ever met. The way he looks at himself in the mirror, fixing his beard and hair in his trademark style, it’s funny. He’s a character to sit and observe.
