What is your approach towards a particular role you play in a Film?
I get nervous with every film that I do. Every new film to me is like a first day of school. Will the teacher be nice, will the rest of the students be nice? The exact fever which you get on your first day of your school, is my fever on every new film I do. When I start to work on any film, I keep looking at the script and rehearsing it many times. I try to understand my character and work on it.

Do you feel high stress-levels in your home productions?
Yes I do. In fact, I ask myself if I am taking it very lightly just because a movie is my home production? When an actor is in front of the camera, it does not make any difference if the film is your home production or an outside banner. The scenario is the same.

How do you compare Shootout At Lokhandwala to Shootout At Wadala?
Shootout At Lokhandwala was a hardcore action film. Shootout At Wadala is more of a realistic film which is based on a true story. Besides this one being a serious film, it still has a package of romance, comedy and masala. Shootout At Lokhandwala was a much bigger film, It was a larger-than-life kind of a film. This one is a much more serious film.

The songs of the film are popular. Any personal favorite?
As far as the audio goes, It is definitely Laila. I love all the songs. Priyanka Chopra has performed terrifically.

Are you planning to remake any of your father’s films?
No, we have not planned anything as such. But if given an opportunity, I would love to remake my dad’s Farz. I think it was an awesome film. If you can present an old wine in a new bottle, why not?

It is heard that you all are planning Jeetendra’s biography?
No we are not. In fact I have already denied this in the media too. But yes, I am planning to celebrate his 50 years in Indian cinema very soon.

Do you plan to take care of Balaji Telefilms in future?
I would love to take care of Balaji Telefilms sometime in the future. But right now, I am here for the family support. Balaji has a huge team of creatively talented people. I have already started a discussion which is not regarding directing a film, but as a producer.

As an actor, what matters to you the most?
The box office is the main thing that matters to me. But I would also like to be appreciated by the critical audience. Appreciation of any kind is very welcome.

What is the next film you are working on?
The next film is called Bajaate Raho by Eros International.
