I know the industry has suffered, and we all will have to keep patience during these testing times. Having said that, I can't say anything about the pay cut. I will see how things function.
On taking up other roles besides doing Kundali Bhagya
Yes, I have been offered a lot of roles, some worked out and some didn't. But as of now. At the moment, I wouldn't like to venture into anything else and would love to focus on Kundali Bhagya. Once we start shooting will know how thertole shapes up ahead.
On how Kundali Bhagya changed his life
It has changed my life professionally and personally both. During Sasural Simar Ka. I was appreciated for my role as a husband. While Kundali Bhagya I became more matured as an actor. My craft changed a lot. I could relate to a lot of many things. I grew each day and I am thankful to my fans for loving me so dearly.
