He further added about his energy on set and called him the ‘best man’ he has seen in his life. "Of course, definitely I will crack a subject better than Jawan, and I will go to him for sure. I will narrate and I will go to him for sure. I will narrate it, if he likes definitely it will happen. I know he loves me a lot... he is something else. He is always an energy to go. He is the best man I have seen in my life. Thank you, Shah Rukh sir. I will come to you once I crack something greater than Jawan. I will definitely come to you," he said.
