“It’s not about being known as a dancer or an actor, I want to be a perfect artiste. I want to work in Bollywood and for that I’m putting in more hard work as you need various other qualities to become an actor,” Faisal said.
The actor, who earlier clinched the trophy of Dance India Dance Li’l Masters 2 in 2013, emerged as the youngest and the first child artiste to win the celebrity dancing reality show on Saturday. He walked away with the trophy, Rs 30 lakhs and a car.
The teenager has jotted down names of actors he would like to work, with Nawazuddin taking top spot.
“I want to work with Nawazuddin. I love his films as he inspires me a lot. And then Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. I would like to dance with Tiger Shroff, Hrithik Roshan and Sunny Deol,” he quipped.
The young lad is happy that his career graph is shaping up well, because he always had big dreams in life. “I always dreamt big and I think only if one dreams big can they achieve something bigger. I don’t have any set plan as such. I will continue doing whatever work comes my way,” he says.
Does he miss spending time with his friends? “I have set a certain target for myself in life and I hope to become really famous. I don’t want to think that I am losing out on any fun. Even my friends want me to work and have never discouraged me from working hard,” he says.
