So, what’s been the reaction to the



Super cool! After the song

featuring Priyanka (Chopra) and me went on air, I’ve been flooded with congratulatory calls and SMSs. I’m really happy with the way the film’s been promoted, no one’s left out.

I’m counting the days to the release. Meanwhile, I’m shooting for a Tamil film with Balakrishna and Priyamani in Hyderabad. There’s another movie with Nagarjuna. Also,


.. and an action thriller that will put my taekwondo skills to good use. (Laughs) I’m a black belt, so beware!

Ha Ha.. didn’t you snag these two mega south projects only because of



No way! I’ve already done six films there. I came to Bombay via south, remember?

Buzz is that some steamy scenes between Priyanka and you have been snipped out?

Really? But those scenes were integral to the story. Madhur (Bhandarkar) was trying to show how the budding love between a young couple can culminate in a physical relationship. It wasn’t mere titillation!

You were spotted shopping with your girlfriend at the electronics store, Croma, in Juhu recently.. but you didn’t buy anything.

I was out with a friend, not my girlfriend. I was looking for a windows phone but I didn’t like what I saw. But hey, you don’t have to buy something every time you enter a store.
