Q: You have said that you no longer want to work with Ram Gopal Varma. Any specific reason?
A: Yes there is a reason behind it. You know when a relationship no longer has trust and respect then the question of self-respect creeps in and to safe guard your self respect, it is better to walk of. I do not wish to talk more about it.

Q: Don't you feel that in this professional film industry, you are too emotional?
A: I am a person who believes in human values. I feel that someone who does not have emotions is not a human.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]Q: You had hosted a game show 'Kam Ya Zyaada' on television. Any plans of getting back?
A: No not yet. Many actors host game shows for money but I did it for my friend Pradeep Guha who is the CEO of Zee Network. When he had joined Zee, he had been given the responsibility to launch a game show. It was just an effort from my side to help him in his effort.

Q: Are you playing the character of Jay Singh in your next movie 'Return to Rajapur'?
A: No in this movie I'm playing an estate agent who wants to open a heritage hotel. He falls in love with a married American woman and from there the story moves on. I do not like to repeat the characters that I have already played. I wish the younger generation plays them.

Q: Tell us about your upcoming projects.
A: My upcoming films include Rajeev Virani's The Whisperer, Sanjay Gupta's Dus Kahaniyaan, Nabbay Minute, Return to Rajapur and Happy. The Whisperer is an English film along with Rahul Bose. It is a story of a man who rises from rags to riches. It is a physiological thriller. Recently at the World Fest this film has won awards in the best thriller and best editing category. In Dus Kahaniyaan I feature in a fifteen minute story called Zaheer opposite Diya Mirza.
