Who gives you the toughest competition?
Nobody. I am not trying to be pompous but no one is in my zone or has done the roles I have, though there are people better than me.
Your biggest achievement?
Getting a standing ovation from Madhuri Dixit, Rani Mukerji and Vidya Balan during Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa last season. And now I am kicked about Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 5.
Your worst scene?
During Sasuraal Genda Phool, I had to shoot in a truckload of fish for over an hour. Being a vegetarian, calling it tough or worse was an understatement.
A show you enjoy watching?
Satyamev Jayate is a superb show and I am a regular viewer.
A show which surprised you?
Crime Patrol is a show that stands out. I also like the story idea of Diya Aur Baati. Even kids in Dance India Dance Li’l Masters blow me away.
Do you feel that some TV shows perpetuate regression?
Regression is everywhere. Women watch and relate to the so-called regressive shows because they have been through it somewhere in their lives.
