“You know, I wanted to be an airforce pilot after I watched Top Gun. A week later, I figured that it was Tom Cruise that I really wanted to be like! When you grow up amongst people who are doing the same work, it does have an influence on you. I am a complete movie buff, and have several favourites. Some that I really like include Seven Samurai, Scarface, Karma, Ram Lakhan, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Dil Chahta Hai, Life Is Beautiful, City Of God, The Godfather, The Great Dictator, all of Steven Spielberg’s work, and more...yes, it’s a looog list! I have always been a bit of an extrovert, and always wanted to be an actor. But I can be an introvert, too, depending on my mood. You can call me moody, perhaps? I think it’s more like I try to find a balance in life, to touch on all the various sides. I guess I am a bit of an oxymoron in my personal life!”
