How has fatherhood changed you?
Fatherhood has made me much stronger and a responsible person. I think it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. As a father all I want is that my son should grow up as a responsible citizen.

Are you open to do fiction shows?
See, that depends on the concept of the shows. I am ready to supernatural shows as well if the script and concept looks enough interesting to me.

Finally, do you think that success has changed you?
Success changes everyone. Success gives an individual a different kind of confidence that reflects in their looks and personality. But, of course, it's up to us that how we maintain that confidence and doesn't let it change into arrogance, which is very much important.
