I had never done anything remotely close to #Sculpting. This was my first attempt at creating an #EcoFriendly Ganesha. I tried...I learnt a lot...I made mistakes...but at the end of the day me and my friends together tried to do something for our planet and help it stay fresh, breathable and ALIVE!! Thank you @rithvik_d and @karanwahi for asking me to join in. Let’s make it bigger next year! 😇
The actor feels that people should learn that they have to do their bit and take care of nature. He admits that he has been avoiding using plastic in the last three years. “I don’t use plastic at all in my daily life. It is tough due to the kind of world we live. We all have to be responsible citizens. I have not bought or used any plastic bottles, straws, cutlery and carry bags. More than not use it, one has to find new ways not to use it. For garbage bags, I got in touch with a company that makes bags using corn starch. In my acting contracts, I have a clause about non-usage of plastic and in fact, my sister’s wedding ceremony was plastic free. My friends too have begun following these habits and I feel if even three of them convert, then my job is done,” he says.

When a film becomes a part of who you are and the team becomes your family... This is what it looks like!! 🤗❤️ #Happiness The Udaan Reunion (Link in my Bio) 📸: @ishikamohanmotwane #Udaan @ronitboseroy @motwayne @anuragkashyap10 @iamramkapoor @oyemanjot @anandntiwari @kalradipika @adityakan @rukhshida @varunkhettry @aayan_boradia99 #Jamshedpur #India #SteelCity #Bollywood #Movie #WorldCinema #Cinema #Bicycle #FatherSon #Jogging #Running
Workwise, his debut film Udaan completed 10 years of its release. He feels humbled that people still remember the film and his performance. “People don’t get the creative satisfaction and the respect as an actor even after 10 films but I got it with Udaan. The film’s team went to the Cannes Film Festival in May 2010. Since then, I have grown as an actor and a person. I have travelled a lot and they have taught me a lot about life,” he says.
He has featured in web shows in the last year and he has used the lockdown period to write a script. “It is a travel film and I plan to act and maybe direct it. too. If not, then I would like to have Imtiaz Ali to direct it.”
