My mother was the greatest mother in the world. She thought I was the greatest thing on two feet.

I’m not a model; hence I don’t see the reason to have a six-pack abs. I can pull off a tough and rugged look of a cop in ‘Dhoom’ series without taking my shirt off. Cops don’t have to move around without a shirt to flaunt their machismo. What makes the character of a cop stand out is his attitude and not his six-pack abs.
I love festivals because they seem like more of an artsy, supportive attitude – which benefits a more theatrical performer sometimes with having theater and other non-club venues, as well as the audience being filled with other artists.
