From being termed as an action hero once to being able to balance different genre, you seem to have played it really well.
I try and do different roles because it gets boring. I want to get up in the morning to feel that I am going to do something different. And I can do that for a maximum of two month, because after that it gets tedious. So I try finishing a film in two to three months. I just started Jolly LLB and we will finish in another month.
Salman Khan recently commented that you are the real Sultan of Box office as you give three hits a year.
It is his greatness that he said something like this. We all know he is a large-hearted guy. I don’t agree though. I did MMA in Brothers and the film did not work. He did it in Sultan and look at how big the film is. So who is the bigger star!
Your cameo in Dishoom has been largely appreciated. It was a gay character and you did not mock at the homosexual community unlike what we usually see. Was that in your mind when you took up the role?
Homosexuals are as normal as any of us. I never understand why we need to make caricatures. Even in Rustom, I have not shown how we usually show Parsis talk in our films. They talk normally but we have always shown them talking very weirdly in our movies.
Were you disappointed when Naseeruddin Shah commented on Rajesh Khanna?
He has apologized and everything is ok now. Let’s look ahead.
Finally, are in a position to talk about Robot 2 now?
My agreement does not allow me to talk anything about that film. I think I have around 16 days of shoots left for the film. That’s all I can say.
