If you look at the roles that I've played so far, you will understand that I haven't played the similar type of roles, I have explored a variety of genres, like in Anamika, I played a double role where one is a wicked guy and another one is the negative guy. And in Maharana Pratap, it was a parallel lead role full of valor and poise, as Shakti Singh. Babu, in Bitto, was a lead role and different in its own right, and in Bebo, also a parallel lead. So yes, I mean I'm quite satisfied with the kind of roles that I've played because those were the selective best and I'm choosy about my work, so I have also wanted to be a part of projects which you know gives me a creative satisfaction as an actor, and I want to explore more. So, I'm grateful to God, I've been lucky, and I got the opportunities to play such roles, and yes, I'm happy and contented with whatever I have done till now.”

As an artist, it is important to grow and I wanted more challenging roles because as a performer, you want to take up roles and projects where you get the best possible opportunity to highlight your talent. And yes, it is considered choosy, but then again, as an actor, you want to be honest and truthful about your work and do the best job.”

And to play an unsung story like Har Dayal Mathur, you know, made me lucky and privileged because he was a guy who started the revolution all over the world, for India, and I think he was the first guy and you know, playing such roles give me immense creative satisfaction as well. And for an actor to explore and to work on, his craft is again always a delight and a wonderful opportunity.
