Your proximity with Ram Gopal Verma has always been talk of the industry. What's your take?

Of late, you have worked for many B-grade films. What's the reason?

all yours. But for a beginner like me, there is no other way than to struggle.

After signing films like Shabri and Don, do you consider yourself among the big league of actors?
