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.
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.
