How has life changed post you bagged Mahabharat?
Mahabharat has been a life changing experience for me indeed. It is crazy and amazing at the same time when even kids as small as six years old recognize me as Dhritarashtra when they see me walking with long hair.

How much do you relate about Dhritarashtra? What do you like and dislike about this character?
I am an actor who follows method acting. I believe in being and feeling that person within me, if I have to act as that character. I have been preparing and living this character for four long years now. I can only say that we all have a little bit of Dhritarashtra in all of us. A father always wants the best for his child, and he will go to any limit to get it. This is what I like in Dhritarashtra. The unconditional love with the power of 10,000 elephants - a man as strong as a mountain with a tender loving heart is what the character is all about. The aspect I did not like about the man is his vulnerability, in the sense that he could be manipulated well. And that's what caused a great war like Mahabharat.

Where do you see yourself five years from now?
I only see myself as one of the most performance-oriented and successful actors of Indian cinema. I feel there is a lot to do and there is little time. So I would rather invest all of it in showing people what I can do best and entertain them with my skills.
