Very Modest, straight-forward and a sheer genius. This actor was born in Bandra, Mumbai to a family that has been active in the indian cinema industry for several decades. He started his career as a child actor. His debut movie also marked the debut of the director of that same movie. He did not give any sort of interviews to any magazines including filmfare, cineblitz etc for around 10 years. He is a huge fan of Roger Federer, a tennis star and loves to play Chess, Tennis aswell as cricket.
Though he has worked with many actresses over his long tenure in the bollywood industry, he has never worked with Aishwarya Rai except for a commercial.
He is a big fan of Alfred Hitchkock stories. Can solve a Rubik cube in less than 13 minutes. He’s the only Indian actor to have declined the offer to be immortalised at Madame Tussauds.
He once said that for him film making is like going to war. He also said that if he gets a chance he’d love to do a movie in the neighbouring country, Pakistan.
He loves to do off-beat movies and has the ability to start a new trend among actors with his regime. For instance, he did not bathe for several days to get into the skin of his character in one of his movies. He not only cares about his movies but also for our country. He was once appreciated by journalists saying that he’s been breaking the bollywood mold by handling the social evils that haunt India and questions were raised, certainly not of doubt, whether an actor can change a nation?
