Quotes by the artist
- Hate is a very strong and heavy emotion, probably as strong as love. I don’t think I can live with hatred. If something bad happens, you feel bad about it; you forgive and move on. There’s no hatred.
- As actors, we need to do our parts exactly the way they have visualized it, because if we don’t, we have to keep doing it many times over.
- Saudi had been a very restricted place. Even on the magazines there, if there was a little leg or cleavage showing, they used to blacken it with a black mark. Me and Ishmeet, so many times, had tried to remove the black portion with our spit, but of course, it would never come out.
- Both me and Ishmeet were very naughty. We used to have my grandfather’s swords in the house. We used to take all these swords and take all the showpieces Mom had and slice them one by one. He actually locked my nana in the kitchen once for two hours.
- There are co-ed schools in Saudi, but those are American or British. My dad, of course, believed in the good old CBSE Indian school system and thus, my younger brother Ishmeet and I were put in an all-boys CBSE school. My mother could move out only if she wore a burkha.
- If I had my way, I wouldn’t be sharing my personal life online. I’m a private person. At home, I don’t wander around shirtless, flexing my muscles. I roam around unshaven, with my hair disheveled. Unfortunately, people perceive you differently. It’s okay; they’re free to speculate.
- I am just like Dr. Armaan – fun-loving, flirtatious, and tension-free. I am serious about my work, but apart from that, I am always playing pranks on people. As a viewer, I relate more to ‘Dil Mill Gayye.’
- I love to sing. I also had a band during my college days in Saudi Arabia called Thousand Decibels. If not an actor, I would have become a singer. I am very passionate about work. I am a fitness freak: I go to gym before doing my shoot. I also do yoga.
- I think there are only two kinds of heroes: the flamboyant ones and the angry-yet-silent types. Every character on TV falls into either category.
- As an individual, I need space and can’t be locked in a house with strangers. I would do ‘Bigg Boss’ if I get to co-host it with Salman Khan.
- Each person’s body type is different, and they need to understand that food should be eaten in regular portions.
- I want to play someone really dark, like a real bad guy on screen. But I am sure I won’t be able to do so because my fans will not let me do it. They are aggressive. My image is such that no one will allow me to do a negative character.
