I am also very happy. I think I am the most suited to this time which is great. Some people may feel out of time. I remember when I joined the industry, guys like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan were just little bit senior to me and I always wish they stay on top like they are now because that means I have slug for few more years.”
“But films were different in the 90’s. I feel our generation has made things quite cool by giving a heart and soul to the profession. And I am proud of that. I feel it’s a great time and I feel very comfortable today because with the kind of sensibility the films are now made, suits mentally which is wonderful,” he added.
