On bagging The Ghazi Attackatul kulkarni
It’s a great feeling to know that your film has been appreciated as it was a very crisp script. When I first read the script, I realised it was an extremely unconventional script. In addition, it was a very difficult movie to do because there were a lot of constraints.
Sankalp Reddy, the director, narrated the entire script to me and showed me the work he had done on it. He had actually built a submarine in his garage as part of his research and gave me a presentation when he came to Mumbai. The film is holding rock steady at the box office and the number of shows is being increased.

On the character and the takeaway
It is a challenge taking on such a script as it is a first in our country. It is a pure war film. The producers put together very good technical support for Sankalp. I was very satisfied with my character as it was exactly what was spelt out
in the script.

On mass cinema and content-driven cinema
Two of my films released recently – Raees and The Ghazi Attack and both of them have done very well. In India, all sorts of films are being made and there are all sorts of audiences in the country. You need to cater to all kinds of people.

On future projects
I am doing Pranaam, which also stars Rajeev Khandelwal. I am also doing a film with my Rang De Basanti co- star Siddharth, which is being produced by Viacom 18.
