The actor is currently busy shooting for Bareily Ki Barfi and as soon as he finishes shooting for it, he will begin work on 5 Weddings in Chandigarh. 5 Weddings will also be partly shot in Los Angeles.

"It will go on floors by November, once I finish shooting for Bareily Ki Barfi. We will be shooting in Chandigarh and LA. As far as Nargis is concerned, I feel she is a fantastic and lovely girl. I haven't met her yet, but I have seen her work in Madras Cafe.

"The role fits really well for her because she will be seen as an Indian girl raised in the US, so I feel it suits her. I am looking forward to work with her," said the National Award winning actor.

He is happy how content makers are considering Indian talent for their films and shows.

"I feel very fortunate and I think it's a fantastic time for all the actors. Look at Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra... they all are doing such a fabulous job. I am glad that the west is considering our Indian talent. I am in a happy space right now," he said.
