“I had a knee surgery at that time and we were shooting for the song - Lahu muh lag gaya. I had to do the Garba while sitting. My physio told me, ‘You can’t sit because you just had a surgery, you can't bend below 90 degrees.' I was unable to do it. Because of pain due to surgery, I couldn't do it. But I remember when I went blank and couldn't remember the steps for the song. It was lunchtime, and Deepika stayed back, and she taught me. She said, ‘You can do it. I’ll teach you.' Somehow I managed to do it and she was damn sweet.'”

"I dub well but that doesn't mean that I'll do a certain type of role that requires a good voice. I am an actor first, I can perform and when it comes to my voice I can take it to any dimension. But, fortunately, in the last two years a lot of people have shown trust in me. I try to do different kinds of roles so that I am not stuck being typecast. I am waiting for the good times, the best to come.”
