He was once known to be Shah Rukh Khan's protege as the superstar helped him enter Bollywood but Nikhil Dwivedi says that he is fed up of answering questions about the senior actor.
The 29-year-old actor, whose first film My Name Is Anthony Gonsalves in 2008 was presented by SRK, said that he does not want people to think that he is using the star's name to gain publicity.
"I don't want to talk about Shah Rukh Khan. He is a big star. I am nowhere near him or any other star. Whenever I talk about him it seems as if I am trying to gain publicity and that is not the case. So, it is best if I don't discuss him at all," Nikhil told PTI.
Though his debut film didn't do so well, Nikhil's police act in the 2010 film Ravaan was appreciated despite the film bombing at the box office. The actor says the Mani Ratnam film was a "step up" for him. "I am very proud of Ravaan. It didn't do well at the box office but for me it was a step up. My performance was noticed even though the role was small," he said.
The actor also received both critical acclaim and a thumbs up from the audience for his role in Shor In The City, where he played one of the three main characters. "It is satisfying to know that my work in 'Shor in the City' was appreciated. The film was both critically and commercially successful. It was a double bonanza for me."
